We welcome you to Kyrene de los Cerritos Elementary School ~ "A Leadership Academy." Our school serves students in preschool and grades K-5 in the Ahwatukee Foothills community.
Since opening our doors in August of 1994, we have continually strived to be one of the premier schools in the Kyrene School District. Our administration, faculty, students and parents are second to none. Our school has a wonderful "school climate" that is very conducive to learning.
At Kyrene de los Cerritos, all K-5 students will lead their own learning through ongoing progress checks, data notebooks, and developing effective habits in their lives to positively impact learning.
