Welcome to Crane Middle School

Dear Parents, 


We kicked off the school year with so much excitement and positive energy.  We continue to be full of incredible opportunities while maintaining high academic excellence. CrMS has defined itself as the most innovative in cutting-edge practices and a philosophy that focuses on your child as a whole.  Your child is engaged in rigorous core-content area classes, Den (Advisory), Discovery, and Career and Technical Education (CTE). We believe in the importance of creating problem solvers and advocating for our students through Den. We offer a choice of classes through Discovery. We will be cutting edge through CTE courses. Our partnership with Yuma-ABEC enhances our vision to Innovate, Create, and Elevate student learning.  We offer Agriculture Science, Career Exploration, DRIVE (RC Car), Health Professions, and STEM. We are excited. Your child is, too!  I am honored to work with a dedicated group of staff that does their best to make every school day the #BestDayEver!    

In closing, I do not need to remind you how important your job is for your child to be successful at Crane Middle School. It requires your commitment that your child attends school every day, contributes to a positive learning environment, and strives for excellence. Let’s have an amazing school year. Work hard! Get smart! Be an Upstander!
