About this school

Kino is a private school in Tucson AZ, for students K-12. Since its founding in 1975, Kino has received national attention as a pioneer in progressive approaches to education, such as hands-on experiential learning, multi-age groupings, and the recognition that there are different kinds of intelligence. Our mission is to provide a school where students are given both the responsibility as well as the freedom that lie at the heart of being a citizen in a democratic society.
