Kyrene de las Lomas is one of the 12 Kyrene schools in the Ahwatukee area that has been educating its students for many years.
Currently, enrollment at Lomas stands at 744 students from grades preschool through fifth grade.
Principal Brian Gibson said the new school year would bring opportunities for new staff members to be immersed within Lomas’ community.
“We already have a seasoned staff, and we’ve been working on new programs,” he said.
Gibson, who’s starting up his sixth year as principal, said Lomas’ diverse population was what set the school apart from other schools around the district and was a great representation of different communities.
Recently, Lomas earned a “B” grade for the 2013-14 school year from the Arizona Department of Education.
