Continuous School Improvement Goals

Goal 1:  Students will be to respond appropriately in writing to constructed response prompts.

School-Wide Organizational Goal - KMS students will consistently complete academic tasks; just say NO to missing and incomplete work.  

We belong to the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) Pacific South School District.  DoDEA is a Department of Defense field activity operating under the direction, authority, and control of the Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness and the Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Military Community and Family Policy.
