Kyrene is known for high academic achievement, with schools consistently outperforming peer districts, charter schools, and state averages on AzMERIT and other academic benchmarks.
    Kyrene comprises 26 schools (17 elementary, six middle, and three K-8). District boundaries encompass all of Ahwatukee and parts of Chandler, Guadalupe, Tempe, and the Gila River Indian Reservation.

    What does it mean to be a Kyrene Kid?

    K-8 program offerings include world languages (Spanish and Mandarin), STEM, college prep, fine arts, performing arts, and computer science immersion. Kyrene is also home to a Traditional Academy, an IB World School and an all-online Digital Academy. Preschool options include dual-language, leadership, and arts integration programs, as well as project-based and self-directed learning programs. Integrated preschool options serve both students with developmental needs as well as their typically-developing peers and are taught by certified staff. Kyrene also offers an impressive selection of courses and program options that occur before, during, and after school hours.
    Families are invited to explore the vast learning opportunities for Kyrene students, from preschool to middle school.
