Kamiakin Middle School is a great place to be. As a Paraeducator in a transition classroom at Kamiakin, I know that the people at Kamiakin really care. The staff are a vibrant group of people. The walls of the school are lined with inspiring messages from then and now. Kamakin is in need of a renovation, as it has not received a major update since it was originally built in 1975. Students, teachers, and staff bring their best selves to school to make each day a great one. We are so fortunate to have Kamiakin as our learning community. Go Cougars!

As a Quest student, my experience at Kamiakin has been highly unsatisfactory. All but a few of my teachers have been unprepared to provide us with the academic rigor the Quest program is supposed to have. One teacher, with a clear bias against Quest students, even went so far as to berate us for allegedly not having empathy and having terrible social skills (both are not true: there are plenty of empathetic and kind Quest students with a lot of friends). This teacher also told the class that we would "never become Fortune 500 CEO's". Aren't teachers supposed to encourage their students?

One of my main complaints with Kamiakin is that the administrators try to boost "school spirit" by doing activities that, quite frankly, not many people enjoy. These activities are a waste of time that could be better spent learning. Maybe then more students would be proficient at math and reading.
It's got a good principal, but there are a lot of misdemeanors and teachers can be very rule-oriented.
