I am Kim Irish, your new Principal at Morenci MS/HS. I have worked here as a teacher for the past 16 years as a teacher, advisor, and coach. I taught 4 years previous to that at other schools. I am excited to begin the new school year and looking forward to serving this community and will work hard to make this school and our students successful. I will be working alongside a dedicated staff to provide the best possible educational program for our students.
In the middle and high school we provide a well rounded education for our students. Our curriculum is aligned to state standards and we are using research based materials to provide our instruction and will be striving to improve standardized test scores. In addition, we have fine arts classes, online courses, and various other electives. We offer a variety of athletics, clubs, and extracurricular activities. Academic assistance is offered at lunch and after school every day, and many of our core classes have co-teachers working in them.
I welcome your input, ideas and suggestions on how we can improve. Input from students, parents and the community regarding curriculum, art and music education, and athletics is essential to ensure that we are providing students with the best educational experience possible. Feel free to call or e-mail, to set up an appointment, if you have any ideas or suggestions for continuing to make Morenci Middle/High School a great place to learn.
