Message from our New Principal

Welcome to THE first middle school established in the city of Chula Vista! 

Chula Vista Middle School (CVM) is a comprehensive site that also serves as a School of the Creative and Performing Arts!  We offer a unique blend of Music, Dance, Visual Art, and Drama classes as part of our general program.   Research shows that engaging in the Visual and Performing Arts helps the brain decode reading, generates connections and enhances vocabulary development.  At CVM, students will engage in meaningful lessons and activities that will not only grow their content knowledge but also develop critical thinking skills to cultivate them into outstanding students, compassionate friends and inspiring leaders.  Our focus is to build each of our students to success so that they have only the best options ahead of them! The path to appreciating the Arts and being college and career ready starts with us!

Our staff is invested in making personal connections with our students so they feel safe, capable and are motivated to be active, contributing members of our school community! My highest recommendation for your time at Chula Vista Middle is to EMBRACE it! We offer so many magnificent classes and programs, I encourage you to look around our website and contact any of our staff on how you can get involved.  The more you participate, the more you will gain as a Cavalier!

It is my honor and privilege to see our students SHINE!

In your service,

Mrs. Lora Bumatay

Proud Principal
