This school is most concerened with testing their children to get out from under federal restructuring. There is no rigor in the academics for bright children. The math program is laughable and parent involvement is lacking.
This school is amazing! All the faculty staff and teachers take the time to get to know students in an intimate personal relationship. That mixed with an amazing location in the middle of paradise sets the scene for an amazing and dynamic learning experience.
My main concern with KMS is the subtle and numerous ways white kids are excluded and bullied. For this reason many parents have decided to homeschool their children. Also the facilities are decrepit and there are absolutely no programs for GT kids. There are few electives and the concentration seems to be on passing state tests instead of educating the children.
