Mrs. Monique Machado

PRINCIPAL

Greetings, Jaguars!

Welcome to Kissimmee Middle School, Proud Home of the Jaguars! Through these doors walk future world changers.

I am Monique Machado, and it is my distinct honor and privilege to serve the students and families of this vibrant community. With over 15 years’ diverse experience serving students at the middle school level, I am committed to inspiring a learning community where:

  • Learners Feel Welcome
  • Learners Are Challenged
  • Learners Feel Safe

As a bilingual, biliterate dual language graduate myself, I know full well the value of educational choice programs that promote high academic achievement while supporting second language development.  I invite you to peruse our course offerings and visit our office to learn more about the many options available to your learner, here at Kissimmee Middle School.  

Our faculty, staff, and administration are committed to delivering a high-quality education where students feel engaged, motivated, and excited to learn. From the rigorous high-school acceleration options to the unique Dual-Language Program. From the rich offering of electives, which include Band, Art, Drama, JROTC, and Career & Technical Education Electives, to support mechanisms like “WIN” designed to meet your child at their entry point. One thing is for sure, we, at KMS are breaking new ground and challenging the status quo with what will prove to be measurable results for ALL learners.  

Join us on this exciting journey, as the Jaguar Nation pivots. We know you have a choice when it comes to your child’s education, and we thank you for choosing Kissimmee Middle School.
