To increase the effectiveness of the school learning climate, KIS has established a school wide dress code requiring students to wear a uniform. The Counseling Department offers many support groups including a Deployment Group and the Cultural Exchange Group, which are well used by our young people. A Transition Center is on campus to assist our dependent military students in adjusting to our school.

Continued focus on Literacy, Math, Teaching Teams, Student Behavior and Discipline will assist our school in reaching their rigorous academic goals.
