Student government members at Challenger Middle School in Mira Mesa raised $2,732 this year for the Muscular Dystrophy Association's Shamrock Drive, bringing the school's contributions to a total of more than $12,000 over the last six years.
Challenger Middle School is located in Mira Mesa, north of Miramar Marine Corps Air Station. Our school is named in honor of the Challenger space shuttle. The memory of the Challenger crew serves as a role model for our multiethnic student population. The Challenger name captures the energy and the inspiration associated with our school’s commitment to success. We motivate students to go beyond their limits, have high expectations and touch the future.
