Kyrene Akimel A-al Middle School

2720 E. Liberty Lane

Kyrene Akimel A-al Middle School has been part of the Ahwatukee area since 1992, offering each of their Rattlers an enjoyable schooling experience from the morning bell to the ending bell.

According to its website, the name of the school is derived from the Akimel O’odham meaning, “Children of the River.”

The school houses just fewer than 1,100 students.

Principal Mike Deignan said the school offers different sport activities and a learning lab before school starts, which offers 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.

School highlight: Inspire Kids Montessori

Tucked away in the corner of The Plaza at Mountainside in Ahwatukee, Inspire Kids Montessori has been teaching its students through Montessori curriculum to enhance their schooling experience.

The school currently houses nearly 60 students, from toddlers to 6 year olds.

Director Diana Darmawaskita said Inspire Kids Montessori began in 2011 at its originally location, and expanded the school in August 2013.

Darmawaskita said the school has received strong support from the staff and parents, which furthered the school’s success.

“We have an individualized program… there’s not a one size fits all,” she said. “Our teachers are very experienced and Montessori certified. They have a passion for working with children.”

Inspire Kids Montessori will be adding one additional class in the fall to meet the demand of incoming students.
