  • My name is ciera ybarra, i went to kirn in 2003~2004 and i loved it there. The lunch was always good and the teachers were wonderful as well as the education they brought. I am 18 years old now going to school here in tucson for archtecture inspired by a class i took while attending there. I am also working on book that my language arts teacher suggested i do. So you see i have made it this far u can too!
