TVUSD: Middle Schools
Middle Schools in Temecula Valley

Below you'll find unofficial descriptions of some of the facts that make each of these schools great.

Gardner Middle School
The Grizzlies are located in the southern section of Temecula off of Via Del Coronado road. The school is relatively new, as it was opened in 2014. Gardner features many qualities worth noting, but the most substantial is their elective system.
The school offers a variety of extracurricular activities. Some standard, such as Drama or Band, but they also offer a STEAM class as well as specific computer classes. For a complete list click here.
Since the school is new, there is either no real foundation of clubs or they're simply not presented on the website, aside from the FOR club. The FOR club stands to make a difference in the world by following the ideas of the late Rachel Scott. They believe making a difference starts with the individual, and that with every good deed there is a chain reaction, meaning something little can go a long way.
Gardner is a new school with a lot of promise. Attending this school is a sure enough path to provide a student with the means to carve a legacy into a school whose traditions are still being formed. If you'd like to learn more, click here.
