Kyrene Akimel A-al Middle school Principal Mike Deignan poses with students in front of the school sign that is advertising their "A" rating.
Kyrene Akimel A-al Middle School has been part of the Ahwatukee area since 1992, offering each of its Rattlers an enjoyable schooling experience from the morning bell to the ending bell.
According to its website, the name of the school is from the Akimel O’odham language and it means, “Children of the River.”
Principal Mike Deignan said the school offers sport activities and a learning lab before school starts, which provides students time before school to seek extra help with work completion or tutoring.
“That keeps our students involved with a lot of things, between the sports and the learning lab,” Deignan said.
