Welcome to Kenwood Elementary

2019 State Schools of Character Award Winner 2019 National School of Character Award Winner

Kenwood is a friendly, close-knit environment that strives to give each child the individual attention that he or she needs. With an emphasis on critical thinking and writing, we see to it that our students, in all subjects, can transfer their ideas into the written word. We require them to have a deep understanding of the content.

We realize that teaching is more than simply relaying information. It requires a positive working environment and a passionate, dedicated staff that understands the most effective teaching tool is empowerment. At Kenwood, we pride ourselves on our reputation with the parents and the district. With a team of intervention specialists, many students get the opportunity to work individually with an instructor or in a small group. We also offer state-of-the-art computer software that enables students to get extra practice in reading and math. We believe in giving every student the chance to succeed, no matter what challenges are set before him or her.

What We Offer

  • We provide enriched learning opportunities through technology integration using computers and iPads.
  • We maintain a commitment to the arts through weekly music, drama, visual art, and creative movement instruction.
  • We offer many student clubs and activities, including basketball, cheerleading, soccer, football, Girls on the Run, art, band, orchestra chorus, and drama.
