Meet the Principal
Welcome to Kyrene de los Lagos, home of the "Mustangs," a place where we believe that every student can be successful. I am an Arizona native, born and raised in Douglas, Arizona. I attended ASU where I obtained my Bachelor's, Master's and Doctorate. Yes, I love being a Sun Devil!
I feel very fortunate in having had a number of unique professional opportunities within the state of Arizona and in Minnesota. My experiences have included teaching extended resource and 4th grade, serving in various administrative roles, assistant director of exceptional student services, assistant principal at a middle school, principal of a high school and a K-8 school.
My husband and I have resided in the Foothills since the early 90's. We love Ahwatukee! While we love our community, during the hot summer months we head to the Pacific Northwest and Canada to get some relief from the heat. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, shopping, reading, decorating, traveling and during the football season, a faithful Minnesota Vikings fan. I also cherish being an aunt and spending time with my nieces and nephews.
Everyday I feel both honored and blessed to have the opportunity to serve the Lagos community and here are some of the reasons:
Lagos has been a part of the Kyrene community since 1988. Our beautiful campus serves approximately 545 students in K-5th grade. Our teachers and staff are passionate and professional in their practice and challenge each student to perform to their highest potential. They take their responsibilities seriously, yet keep our campus an exceptionally warm, fun, and welcoming place.
Our students exhibit a healthy balance of academic drive and fun-loving school spirit. Students are given opportunities for success in the classroom, in music, art, PE, and in social settings with their peers. Lagos is a fantastic school where students excel academically, where our teachers and staff continually challenge students to succeed, and where parents and community support us in so many ways.
