Middle school philosophy
Kyrene’s team approach allows teachers to know your child better. At each grade level, students receive their core instruction from a team of teachers who share the same group of students.
Advanced math and language arts 
Class placement is determined by a compilation of state and in-district test scores. In language arts and math, grade level and advanced classes are available. We offer high school level courses for students who qualify, including transportation to local high schools.
