  • Mr. DeRight

    My name is Nathan DeRight, and I am both honored and blessed to be the proud Principal of Kissimmee Elementary School. Having begun my teaching career right here at KMES, I am happy to be back “home”. I look forward to all the advancements and wonderful experiences to come during the 2020-2021 school year. Our district-wide motto is “Anchored in Excellence… Every Child, Every Chance, Every Day”. Excellence is the quality of being outstanding or extremely good at something. At Kissimmee Elementary, our staff is committed to giving the best they have each and every day. With our staff leading the charge for change, our students are pushed to reach their highest potential. The road to excellence for our students will not be judged by the end result, rather by the path and journey they took to get there!
