My son started at KTEC the first year it opened. He was in 2nd Grade. In the past seven years, he has learned so much about the 21st Century world. While he gets to use special technology like LEGO Robotics and Project Lead the Way, he has also learned how to use today's skills in all his school subjects. For example: creating websites to present history reports, using apps for note taking and organization, and learning how to use the same online subscription services that he will be exposed to in higher education. He is building skills that will make him a highly sought after employee and a responsible global citizen.

This school did not offer anything more advanced then other schools. The use of technology at this school is the same that other schools offer. Sadly I felt the students are more aggressive here then at our regular school. The principle feels that a child need to learn how to "deal with it!" What a wasted year here!!

It's a charter school that focus' on getting kids ready for the 21st centuary. It has a small town feel and the principal is the reason for this!

KTEC is a relatively new Kindergarten - 8th grade charter school in Kenosha Wisconsin that was originally started by 3 local teachers. KTEC integrates technology and 21st century skills into its curriculum. The children (and teachers) LOVE it!!! The children learn how to collaborate and work together with each other in class and between grade levels. I love the opportunity to work with such dedicated, hardworking staff members. Everyone wants the children at KTEC to grow and be successful. Also, the parents are awesome and very supportive of their children. :)

My daughter's Kindergarten year at KTEC was unbelievable. She is reading and doing simple math. My son (3rd grade) went from angry and bored at his last school to happy and excited to go to school. After volunteering and getting to know most of the teachers, I can say they are very creative and talented. They all possess a special gift to get the content of their curriculum across to each student as needed while making it interesting and fun. There are plenty of field trips and out of classroom learning experiences. I highly recommend this great school!
