Our Principal

Kyle Darbonne

Principal

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! I am honored and excited for the incredible opportunity to be joining the Fireweed Family as the new principal. I look forward to building relationships with you and your family as we learn, grow, and thrive together as a school community.

I come to Fireweed with a background in public education, school administration, and non-profit work. When my wife and I moved to Homer in 2019, we knew we had found our home in this amazing community. My passions include outdoor education, project-based education, social emotional learning, and building resilience factors to help kids and families succeed. I look forward to continuing to engage the community in multiple capacities while working alongside our wonderful Fireweed staff, families, and APC.
