Tier 1 Student Supports are comprised of foundational resources for all students and educators on a campus. These are universal systems and resources designed to support the academic and social-emotional needs of students at all levels. 

AVID Schoolwide

AVID schoolwide aligns a school with best practices in college and career readiness. AVID schoolwide seeks to transform the Instruction, Systems, Leadership, and Culture on a campus so that students are more likely to succeed in college, career, and community.


AzCIS is the online career planning system used in MPS. AzCIS is designed to provide comprehensive educational, career, and occupational information to help the users in making better-informed career and school choices. 

Prepare to Succeed

School Counseling

Mesa School Counselors are an integral part of the schools' total educational program. Each counseling progam implements a comprehensive National ASCA Model for Counseling. 

Through individual advising, classroom lessons, small group activities, data analysis, and programs and interventions, our School Counselors ensure that ALL students have the academic, career, and personal/social skills they need to be successful.

Social & Emotional Learning (SEL)

Quality SEL instruction in which students learn to process, integrate, and selectively apply SEL skills in developmentally, contextually and culturally appropriate ways in conjunction with a safe, caring, participatory and responsive school climate can result in positive outcomes.
