Dr. Kimberly Jensen
Welcome to ACES High School and Mukilteo Virtual Academy! I am so glad that you are checking out who we are and what we offer. We are a small, choice high school that specializes in personalization. As part of that personalization, we offer two modes of learning: an in-person option (ACES) and a virtual option (MVA). Both settings offer innovative approaches, highly qualified and creative staff, and a family atmosphere. Staff are truly invested in the lives and learning of students, constantly looking for new ways to grow students to their best selves.
This school year (2021-2022) is my first year as the Principal of ACES High School and Mukilteo Virtual Academy. As part of the design, planning, and implementation team for MVA, I am fully invested in the launch of this new, choice option for families. Equally, ACES has a long reputation of meeting the needs of students who thrive best in a small school environment with small student-to-teacher ratios. We follow the same curriculum as our sister schools, Mariner and Kamiak. Additionally, we partner with Sno-Isle TECH Skills Center as an expanded approach to meet the learning interests of students.
This is my eighth year in Mukilteo School District, where I previously served as an Assistant Principal at Kamiak High School. Last year, I facilitated the launch of the HealthyU work across the district, which included the formation of HealthyU Student Advisory work groups. I am super excited to bring that same work to ACES/MVA. Before joining Mukilteo, I taught English Language Arts and Social Studies in Grades 7-11 in Lake Washington School District. My background also includes teaching at Seattle Pacific University in the School of Education and Instructional Consulting. My husband, Shane, and I have two grown children, Zachary and Jessica, and a fur-baby, Terminator--a six-pound Pomeranian. When I am not at work, I love to play pinball, run, adventure, and connect with friends. I look forward to getting to know each one of you this year and partnering with you as we envision our school into the future!
