My daughter just completed her first semester of college and did very well. Her Montessori roots certainly helped!! KMS Alumni Parent, 2011

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.

I have two children at KMS and plan to enroll my third. The school does an excellent job of helping children move forward with their strengths and not feel lost in areas where they may be behind. Both of my children love going to school and we enjoy the community. KMS Parent, 2008
