This is an oasis for kids not built for traditional schools. I owe them 100% for helping get my son graduated. We had been in and out of many schools trying to find the right fit. Thank God for them because my son is now 23, bought his first home at 21 and is successfully running his own business. Kino saved my family and I am forever in debt! If your child is struggling in public school, you owe your child an opportunity to learn and grow here. You won`t be disappointed!

Most important in education and in my child's education is building relationships. Students at Kino are fostered and cared for not only academically but also emotionally in the most positive way. This is best for creating happy healthy members of our society.

Kino School actually covers all grade levels through 12th Grade. The academic programs are unique in that they are truly designed around the students . I have 2 sons that attend, 7th and 9th graders, and they are learning and having fun at the same time. They go out on field trips all the time - since learning and life are one.
