About Renee Kory, Principal
Welcome to Kyrene Aprende Middle School! I am honored and excited to begin my sixth year as proud principal of Aprende and look very forward to continuing to work with this amazing team and community.
While the end of last year and the start of this year is definitely not what we expected, we will continue to move forward with resiliency, strength, hope, and a never-ending support of one another. We are fortunate to be a part of such a strong community, and I know all of us will get through these uncertain and ever-changing times together!I remain committed to continuing our school mission of Excellence, Community, and Innovation as we empower our students to be 21st century problem solvers and critical thinkers. I am also very excited to continue to grow our AVID program after becoming an AVID Site of Distinction last school year.
Throughout my educational experiences, my heart and my passion have always been in middle school. Middle school is a time of great exploration as students navigate through all the highs and lows, diverse experiences, and rich opportunities. As a middle school community, it is our goal to help them develop their unique identities by guiding them through educational, social, and extra-curricular activities in a safe and engaging way, while promoting responsibility, integrity, critical thinking, and citizenship.
I feel so fortunate to play a role in leading students, teachers, and parents through the middle school journey here at Kyrene Aprende Middle School.
I look forward to beginning another amazing (albeit atypical) year at Aprende. Please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns. Go Jaguars!
