I have no hesitation in recommending KMS. The school is well run; the teachers are very nurturing and knowledgeable. [My son] has adapted with ease to his new environment. KMS Parent, 2010

Our Board

Board of Trustees

KMS is governed by a Board of Trustees composed of parents, community representatives, and members of our staff. The Board has fiduciary responsibility for the school. Board members also set policy, do long-term planning, and help with fundraising.

Parents and community representatives are elected at a parent meeting at the beginning of each school year. They serve two-year terms and can be elected a total of three times.
