Kyrene Middle school is making lots of good changes. New staff, new plans for solving some of the problems that changed this from a top school to a struggling school. As a former student, I still recommend KMS as a great place to go, especially now that they've added more music and language classes (like Mandarin). There are great teachers that care a lot, and it is becoming a really good school again.

do not send your child to this school!!! This year i graduated and i'm so relieved. This was also my first year there. I was bullied and i've never had a problem with bullying until i went to this school. None of the teachers did anything about it and sometimes I would be the one being punished for it because " i didn't tell a teacher". I now have anxiety thanks to the bullying i have received. DO NOT GO TO KMS!

I am a student of kms! And I absolutely love this school. I always look forward to going back to school. They have an awesome Principal who knows how to run the school and also knows how to have fun. There are awesome teachers. They are always there to help and talk to. When you get in trouble they disiplin you by sending you to I.S.I. Which is a place where they send you when your bad. They dont let you talk to know one or they will call your parents orrrr... A.S.D (After school detention). This school is strict but is always a fun place to come back to. FUN fieldtrips!! This school I would recommend to anyone. I absolutely love this school!
