What I noticed when my daughter started middle school was how much more organized she was than most of her friends. She didn’t seem to have any trouble getting her homework and other assignments done on time. The KMS Elementary teachers did a great job preparing her! KMS Alumni Parent, 2015

Diversity

Students

KMS values diversity and admits children of any gender, race, color, religion, and national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to children at the school.

KMS does not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, color, religion, or national or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admission policies, scholarships, and other school-administered programs.

All children who meet the age requirements will be evaluated fairly on the basis of the standards set forth on our Admission page.

Our students and their families come  from all parts of the United States and the world. In recent years, approximately

  • 1/3 are of color or have international roots;
  • 1/3 have moved to Knoxville from other states;
  • 1/3 have roots in Tennessee.

Countries of origin include: India, Argentina, Russia, China, Vietnam, Mexico, Brazil, Jamaica, Iran, Turkey, and Israel.

Ethnicities include: Asian, African-American, Hispanic and Native American.

This diversity enriches our school and helps prepare our students for the multi-cultural world of the 21st century.
