Welcome to Altar Valley Middle School

Welcome to AVMS, proud home of the Eagles! We are located just southwest of Sasabe Road and Ajo Highway, in Tucson, Arizona. We are one of two schools in the Altar Valley Elementary School District, and we serve students in 5th through 8th grade.

We are honored to educate the children in our area and offer many programs for families and students. We believe that all students can SOAR when given the opportunity, and we strive every day to make this a reality for the many middle schoolers on our campus.

Take some time to browse our site. We’ve loaded it with helpful information such as how to contact us, frequently asked questions, and our school calendar. We know you’ll find this a useful resource. Thanks for stopping by!


A Message from Principal Peebles

Parents, Guardians, Students, and More, 

Can you believe it? Another school year is upon us! I can’t tell you enough how excited I am to be a part of Altar Valley Middle School and Altar Valley School District. We have spent the summer putting together a team of Altar Valley All-Stars who are ready to meet all of you! Please welcome our new teachers and staff to Altar Valley Middle School:

  • Kelsey Morales (5/6 SPED)
  • Scott Dalton (7/8 Science)
  • Robin Bradley (6th Grade)
  • Jan Chen (SPED Director/Psychologist) 
  • Aileen Pedrego (SPED Admin. Assistant) 

This school year is truly going to be something special. Why? Because I can promise you that AVMS is going to be a place filled with laughter, passion, and learning. At Altar Valley Middle School, we want each and every person that comes onto our campus to know they are valued and that they hold tremendous worth. We believe in fresh-starts and new beginnings. We believe in growth and potential. And, we believe in bringing everyone together to accomplish success. 

To the students, we want you to know how much we truly care about you at Altar Valley Middle School. You are the reason we come to work every day. You matter to each and every one of us. When you come onto this campus, you are the most important thing in the world to us. We hope that every day you leave our building knowing how special you are and just how much potential you hold. 

To the parents and guardians, you are just as important. Without you, we will not reach our full potential as a school. We value you and your opinions. We look to you as a partner in your child’s education. We are excited to work with you and to greet you with a smile each and every day. AVMS will be a place where you are welcome any time. 

To all others, we know this is a team effort. We know it will take an entire community coming together. We invite the entire community to take part in the exciting upcoming school year at Altar Valley Middle School. 

I look forward to meeting all of you at Meet the Teacher night on August 3, from 3:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. We will have all of our Altar Valley All-Stars ready and waiting! This school year is filled with unlimited potential and we are ready to meet the challenges head on! 

Josh Peebles

Sincerely,

Josh Peebles

Josh Peebles, Principal
