• About the Assistant Principal and Athletic Director

    Dear Jaguar Families and Students,

    It is an honor to serve as the Assistant Principal and Athletic Director at Aprende Middle School. I am honored to call Kyrene Aprende my home as I had served as the 6th grade Academic and Behavioral Specialist for the past 5 years. I am committed to providing academic and behavioral support in a positive and safe learning environment for all students. As the Assistant Principal, I will primarily be providing support to our 8th grade students and families. Aprende’ s faculty and staff are dedicated to fostering a culture that promotes learning, enthusiasm, and achievement for all students.
