At KLE, there exists a strong partnership between the home and school in this important capacity. Working cooperatively, these two environments cultivate the emerging value systems of our youngest learners. The fact that KLE serves a highly diverse student population is an essential component towards how we prioritize an emphasis on respect for one another. Teaching students as early as the age of 3 to have self-respect, while also demonstrating respect towards others, is critical to our emphasis on providing a safe and inspiring learning environment. Students learn these behavioral characteristics from the adults and children they come in contact with, as well as observe on a daily basis. Students learn about respect, responsibility, integrity, honesty, kindness, community service, making the right choices, and goal setting, through class lessons, cooperative learning activities and important school level presentations. These vital character traits are embedded into the District and school's Character Education Program . School leaders, teachers, counselors, therapists, and support personnel work diligently to genuinely set positive examples for our students and community at large. Our school mission statement focuses on each child reaching their full potential. Paramount to our mission is a solid foundation forged in respect for oneself, respect for others, and respect for the power of knowledge and learning.
We are extremely proud of our respectful and motivational learning/working environment. Guests and visitors to the school repeatedly compliment us on the dedication of our teachers, the superb behavior of our students, and the positive and friendly customer service they receive from our team members. Parents and guests truly feel a commitment towards "family" and "care" when they come to KLE in search of the best environment or specialized services for their child or children.
Ultimately, we strive to exceed standards at all times; a quality we work to pass on to our students for their success at KLE and beyond.
