Elementary School

"The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease for ever to be able to do it."

Peter Pan, by J.M. Barrie

Nurturing Our Youngest Dragons

Here in the Elementary School at KAS we believe that providing a community for children to discover and explore who they are is the foundation for future success. How we see ourselves as problem solvers, communicators, learners, and global citizens shapes our children’s identity and values as they grow and develop. We purposefully create a safe space for students to learn from their mistakes and believe in themselves.

Laughter, joy, and smiling students fill the halls of the KAS Elementary School. Students are encouraged to learn through play, work through challenges, and make new friends. Dedicated and caring teachers provide an academically rigorous and challenging program that stretches our students to their full potential. 

Our commitment here at KAS is to give the students the ability to wonder, dream, and hope so they can shape and guide their own future to success and happiness.

Success Stories

Mervyn, Class of 2033

My favorite part about KAS is my teacher because she helps me learn new things. Children can learn new things.

Kaden ’30

KAS is a really great school. There is always a new challenge you can face so you can learn. Learning is important and all the teachers I have at KAS show me different ways of learning. My favorite books are biographies.

Emma, Class of 2028

My favorite thing to learn at KAS is Math because you use it all the time. I like that we have different cultures. I like that the teachers are nice and help you when you need help at school.
