Congratulations to the entire KM staff, students, parents and community on our newest state award. Kent-Meridian has been awarded the first ever English Language Acquisition Award by the State Board of Education. KM is the only HS in the state of WA with over 100 ELL students to win this award. This award is a true representation of the hard work and compassion our school community has for ALL of our students, but specifically our hardworking ELL students. A special thanks to our amazing ELL teachers and paras and to all KM staff who work daily to ensure our ELL students are successfully accessing the core instruction. Thank you all again for all you have done and will continue to do for our kids.
The Kent-Meridian Technology Academy (KMTA) is a highly successful Kent School District school of choice located at Kent-Meridian High School and serving students in grades 9-12. Students enroll in KMTA from across the district to take advantage of today’s technology in applying 21st Century skills in a small learning community environment. Students learn together through problem-based and community-connected curriculum.
Kent School District has been recognized as a “Top-ranked School District” by the Center for Digital Education and the National School Boards Association.
Scholastic Administrator Magazine showcases Kent School District’s technology innovation from the success of our annual Technology Expo to the integration of technology in the classroom, and in programs throughout the district.
KSD parents and staff are invited to attend a free round table discussion on the importance of education data and what it means to the success of our children. Preregistration is recommended.
IB is the best education experience; as we learn how to analyze what we are learning rather than simply memorizing and regurgitating facts. It offers academic breadth and depth and cultivates an international mindset.
