School Description

Kirkland Middle School (KiMS) is a 6-8 Middle School that serves approx. 570 students. We are small enough to know our students well. This fact in turn supports the important concept of a more personalized educational environment for our students. Through our peer mentor program, each sixth grader is matched with a 7th or 8th grade mentor to help them navigate the first few months of Middle School. We continue our school-wide Bully Prevention Program during our Panther Pride Time, four days a week. We still enjoy our extensive building remodel, which supports and promotes our emphasis on collaboration among staff and students.

As always, our focus is on providing every student with the opportunity to progress, advance and experience personally challenging work.
