Elementary School

Welcome to KAS Elementary School!

From PreKindergarten through grade 5, KAS provides a safe, stimulating, collaborative, and fun learning environment for our young Dragons.

The Early Years Program addresses the needs of the whole child and seeks to nurture each student’s academic, physical, social, emotional, and creative growth. In our Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten classrooms, you’ll find students exploring, creating, and discovering, with hands-on materials. They learn while they work and play in groups, in pairs, and independently in a caring and engaging environment.

In the lower and upper elementary schools (grades 1–5), we follow the American education system and standards. From English, science, and social studies, to STEAM, music, and Chinese language classes, our students are encouraged to challenge themselves and explore their interests while gaining the skills and knowledge that prepare them for middle school. All of our students are working to strengthen their social and academic skills in English speaking, writing, listening, and reading.

We welcome you to explore the information below to learn more about learning in the KAS elementary school. It is a joyful experience to be a member of our school community at the elementary level.

Weekly literacy, music, physical education, and visual arts lessons with qualified specialist teachers give students the foundation for further study and exploration in these areas.

Bilingual Teaching Assistants (TAs) in every classroom serve as teaching partners and provide additional support and more personalized learning to help students grow and thrive.

A dedicated STEAM makerspace provides a state-of-the-art environment for students to create, problem solve, and develop 21st century skills.

We prioritize social and emotional learning and wellness with a dedicated full-time elementary school guidance counselor and relevant curriculum.

Parents are a valued part of our school community and join us on campus throughout the year for parent workshops, parent-teacher conferences, student performances, assemblies, and celebrations.

English language support and Chinese language instruction are integrated into our curriculum to support language acquisition and prepare students for success in middle and high school.

Students are offered two different choices for daily school lunches, with a specialized third vegetarian meal option.
