CMHS Front of Campus

Costa Mesa Middle School and Costa Mesa High School and are two schools in one. Our unique 7th-12th grade campus is home to the Mavericks and the Mustangs and we are all Mesa Nation!

In Mesa, we have a commitment to developing the whole student – mind, body, and heart. We live by the MESA Way – Model Integrity. Engage Respectfully. Show Compassion. Achieve Excellence.

Our Commitment to every student, every day continues to guide everything we do as an educational community to support them. Our 8-period block schedule allows for us to offer challenging enrichment opportunities including our Signature Academies, a robust VAPA program, and Project Lead the Way Engineering programs. Our highly qualified teachers and support staff work every day to implement The MESA Way - a PBIS approach to teach, reward, and reinforce expected behaviors for success. Our interventions and supports help to focus and support students inside and outside of the classroom.  Our sports and activities engage students physically, and through a focus on commitment to the community, we develop a strong heart for all.
