Welcome to Mission Hill

Welcome to Mission Hill Middle School, home of the Mavericks! Mission Hill is proud to be the first community school in Santa Cruz and have its outstanding faculty and staff educating students for over 150 years. 

At Mission Hill, we are dedicated to providing the highest level of academic excellence in an environment that nurtures all aspects of a child’s development. The Maverick community takes pride in engaging students in a rigorous, relevant curriculum and building strong scholars. We use the Maverick Essentials - Responsibility, Collaboration, Innovation, Perseverance, and Integrity - to grow our students' academic abilities and life skills.

It is also important to us that parents actively participate in our school activities. Attending school activities and establishing a relationship with your child’s teachers are essential for student success. Our doors are open, and we welcome you here.

Mission Hill is a great place to experience your middle school journey. On our campus, everyone is safe, well known, and cared for; and students are simultaneously challenged and supported. Middle school is a time to learn, grow, make new friends, and engage in new experiences.  We are honored to partner with you and your family at this exciting time in your lives.
