At KLS, our goal is to bring together students and families from racially, culturally, and economically diverse backgrounds who are excited to take part in discovering and implementing new research-based education models. KLS families believe in our mission, help support their children in becoming lifelong learners, and contribute to our collaborative school community in many ways.

We welcome your application to be part of our dynamic community!
