Because of the combined grade classrooms, I learned how to get help from my classmates when I didn’t understand something, and later how to be an eager but patient teacher. KMS Alumna, 2009 (Elementary Graduate 2007)

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 have been part of families whose roots are overseas, including India, China, Vietnam, Mexico, Brazil, Jamaica, Iran, Turkey, and Israel;
  • 1/3 have been part of families that moved to Knoxville from other parts of the United States;
  • 1/3 have been part of families whose roots are in Tennessee.

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