Sources of School Pride
- Kyffin has been a John Irwin School of Excellence Award winner for 12 years.
- CDE Highly Effective School Library Program Award recipient - Awarded in 2015. This award is only awarded to a few schools in Colorado each year, and the Highly Effective status will be retained until 2018 if the library personnel does not change.
- Kyffin has a very tight and involved parent community that includes a strong PTA and accountability committee. Additionally, Kyffin has a Gifted and Talented Center program that coexists with its comprehensive, neighborhood school mission and vision.
The Kyffin community is strong, with a great deal of parent involvement. With this comes a lot of volunteer opportunities, community events, and extracurricular activities. As a multi-year John Irwin School of Excellence Award winner, there's a lot of Cougar Pride at Kyffin. Also, through the Positive Behavior Intervention Support program, students learn to follow their Positive, Respectful, Responsible, and Safe (PRRS) behaviors to create a caring, responsible community. Finally, Kyffin has a Gifted and Talented (GT) Center program. While Kyffin has approximately 250 students identified as GT, the school prides itself on meeting the needs of every student through problem-solving, data-driven instructional practice, and collaborative learning communities.
