Here at Pacoima, we are working hard to ensure that your child receive the finest instruction possible. We have high expectations for our students as we push them to higher academic levels. We will continue to initiate early intervention programs in the second semester to address those students who are not meeting grade level standards. Your participation in your child’s education is one of the most important factors in his/her success in school.
Please take advantage of the District application LAUSD PASSport. For more information please click here: https://achieve.lausd.net/Page/10470. Also, all students have an academic diary so that they can write down their assignments and be more organized. Please check your child’s academic diary on a regular basis to see if they have homework or assignments to complete. Attend scheduled Parent Conferences to receive updates on your child’s academic progress. You may also contact your child’s counselor for additional academic and social-emotional support.
Working together we can ensure that your child receives a quality educational experience at Pacoima Middle School.

Pacoima Middle School is encouraging everyone to “Start with Hello” to kick off Kindness Week. All students enjoyed an assembly that showed everybody can start a great conversation with just a simple word “hello”; it really connects each other. The initiative is part of “Start With Hello Week,” a national youth violence prevention program run by Sandy Hook Promise, which encourages students to reach out to others as a way to perpetuate community and prevent social isolation.
Pacoima Middle School gathered to celebrate excellence in the classroom and out. We honored those students who earned Principal’s Honor Roll, Honor Roll, Perfect Attendance, Excellent Club, and Counselor’s Awards for the fall semester. Coming together to recognize and celebrate accomplishments is an important part of living and working as a community. Pacoima Middle School is proud of what the students have learned and accomplished.
Pacoima’s English Language Learners are rockin’ it! In the last 4 years, our reclassification rate has jumped from 14% of ELLs to 27%! This means we exceeded the district's goal of 22% and puts Pacoima in the high blue level on the California Dashboard. Way to go students and teachers!
