    Family Involvement

    Families make a huge difference in the education of their children. At Aki Kurose Middle School parents can have a positive and very direct effect on the entire educational environment. Aki parents are committed and involved. They work hand-in-hand with administrators, teachers, and student leaders to create programs, support curriculum and provide unique educational opportunities for all of our students. PTSA also works to build community and develop partnerships between our students' families and the school.
