Kino Learning Center Ratings & Reviews

I gave Kino 3 stars because, although I thoroughly enjoyed my stay, there was much to be desired within the school itself. I think Kino is fundamentally a bright and wondrous place, where ALL students are accommodated and have opportunities that go beyond the classroom, but that is unfortunately not what it is. Kino is a school that was designed to be progressive and combat an oppressive system where your worth within the student body is solely quantitative, but it has unfortunately turned into another version of that. Student body is woefully unengaged in academics, and while Kino advertises itself as being a school where students must learn to value their education, the reality is that most students come into Kino with some sort of 'situation.' Sometimes the situation is because of credit loss, or because of mental illness, but it is often that students come to Kino with no drive. The positive environment can bring back the drive, but as far as I've seen, only to a point. After that point, the student is discouraged and cares less and less about academics, and more about whatever other side-interest they have. Their drive disappears. Kino, now, has a jaded administration, teaching staff, and student body that have an overall good sense of community, but no sense of what's outside of it. Kino, as a school, is a microcosm of alternative education at it's most mediocre. Kino, as a community, is extremely positive. Pick your poison, I suppose.

Kino School is truly where learning and life are one. You won't find the Common Core here. You will find an environment where each student is recognized as a unique individual and the teachers truly know each student. I have a son in high school and when I asked him why he was spending so much time on his lessons in one of his classes, he explained to me that he could quickly do the lessons and turn them in but he was really wanting to learn the material. He also said that he could just go to traditional school if all he was supposed to do is turn in homework without even learning it. Kino School facilitates his learning..encouraging him to think for himself, guiding him in the best way that works for his learning style. Kino doesn't give letter grades because they understand that you can't put a magical letter grade on learning. My son writes course evaluations for each credit he earns. When a college admissions office reads them, they will definitely have true insight into what my son knows.

A lovely progressive private school. Beautiful desert campus with animals, greenhouses, desert plants. Caring and inspiring teachers. Child-directed learning. Music, art, science, literature, welding, social studies, mathematics, weekly field trips. K-12 - small classes. Everyone knows one another and works together.

Kino School is a progressive education environment. It is not traditional public education. There is flexibility in courses based on each individual ability - not by some magic age/grade level. There is time to go out and play. There are many, many field trips. There is weekly community service projects. There are no grades. In high school, students are required to take the same core courses traditional school students take to be ready for college. While there is no "AP" label, students choose to do extra work in courses to challenge and explore beyond the course offerings. Students are active participants in their learning. And they do learn, not just memorize for test taking. It's difficult and perhaps impossible for some parents/students to consider Kino School as an educational alternative because they're unable to break free from what our society perceives as the way education works. But those who do, will discover Kino School is where students are free to explore what truly interest them and to flourish in that knowledge.
