The teachers and staff work very hard to develop empathy, compassion, and responsible social skills. KCSD is a PBIS district and it shows in their behavior data, attendance behavior, and the overall welcoming climate of the schools.
There is a huge variety of "elective" class offerings compared to any other middle school in the area - from band and choir, to Industrial Tech, Computer Applications, Life Skills, Art, TAG...kids are well rounded and are exposed to a variety of life experiences and developmental opportunities.
KMS has an incredibly high attendance rate, over 95% student attendance, tremendous academic supports resulting in a very high success rate. KMS has tons of athletics, clubs and groups to be a part of. I would highly recommend this school.
