Our curricular program continues to strengthen and our students are demonstrating academic excellence.

We continue to embrace the ideas embodied in Jaguar PRIDE: Passion, Respect, Integrity, Determination, and Excellence.

The curricular program at Kimball is centered on three pathways designed to support students in their areas of interest. Each pathway supports students in achieiving our mission of They have been accepted to major universities, recieved scholarships for their academic excellence and their athletic performances. We have clubs that support students in career related areas of interest such as HOSA- Future Health Professionals, Future Teachers of America, Future Business Leaders of America and this year for the first time our MESA (Math, Engineering, Science Acheivement) Club. The music and drama programs have earned honors in their competitions and the athletic program continues to build and strengthen as do other programs in our school.
