Kiewit Middle School is a model for other schools to follow. Strong academics, safe environment, clean building, awesome teachers, numerous extracurriculars, and terrific parent support are all reasons why to send your child to Kiewit.

This school is very good and encourages creativity. The school lunches are good, although in past years everything was all around better, except the pizza. One of the few problems in this school is stereotypes, you are either a type of person, or a nobody. For example kids who skate bored would never be freinds friends with a child who plays basketball. I think this effects alot of kids out look on what they can and can't do. Other then that this school is wonderful.
