STAFF REPORT

Hutchinson Middle School, located at 13900 Estero Rd in La Mirada, is hosting a Showcase to highlight its high achieving education & programs on Thursday, Nov. 14 from 5:30-7:00 pm.  This event is in an Open House format in which all subjects and electives will be presented in classrooms throughout the school.  

Teachers and students will be on hand to explain how Hutchinson meets all student needs including challenging them in high level Honors courses.  This middle school includes grades 6-8 and is a 1:1 iPad school with students using devices in all classes, including electives and PE.

Elective course options at Hutchinson Middle School include AVID, leadership, musical performing arts, STEM and PLTW courses, high school Spanish and high school PLTW Engineering.  Hutchinson has 6 zero period classes, which provides a great number of students the opportunity to take 2 elective courses, rather than just one.

Hutchinson’s  music program is regularly awarded Superior scores in SCSBOA Festivals and students move on to success in high school band programs.  Hutchinson’s Wind Ensemble and Orchestra will be performing during the Showcase on November 14.  Band Boosters are hosting a Taco Cart for dinner – $5-$8 per plate.

Hutchinson has the highest state assessment scores in the Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District.  The success of its STEM Magnet program is evidenced by outstanding student achievement in all classes.  8th grader, Tyler Lee, says, “The skills I use in Magnet classes are transferrable to math and science, when I explain my thinking and work with others.”  Hutchinson has been awarded the CBEE Honor Roll 8 years in a row for excellence in math, English/language arts and science, including California Distinguished School in 1996, 2003, and 2015 and California Gold Ribbon in 2017.  

This event is open to all families to explore education and programs offered at Hutchinson that prepare students for success in high school and college.  Hutchinson’s website is www.hutchinsonhawks.org.

Tyler plans to continue engineering in high school, “After learning so much at Hutchinson, I will be able to excel in high school and attend a great college that will open up a lot of opportunities for me.”
