Small School, Big Heart
Kent Mountain View Academy (KMVA) is a decidedly different school. To capture the uniqueness of it, we asked our students to choose words that best describe KMVA.
Using their descriptive terms, the emerging word cloud (pictured) featured what is most important to our students—inclusiveness, kindness, friendliness, and fun. Students also described KMVA as respectful, dependable, loving and safe. Our students know the value of belonging and its impact on their learning!
Academically, our students’ voices are reflected in their learning over the course of the year. Using their own data, students along with their teachers, set measurable individual goals in the fall and share them with their families during student-led conferences.
This personalization of learning is our continual reminder that every student can achieve and is an important part of our KMVA learning community.
We value our KMVA families for their support of their students’ goals and our learning-focused community. We depend on each other! Through this partnership, we can be the family-friendly, small, awesome school that every child deserves. It is a continual privilege to learn and lead at KMVA!
