Kenowa Hills
Middle School




The culture of a school plays a vital role in student success. At Kenowa Hills Middle School, we work purposely in developing a positive school culture to further engage students in their learning experience and meet our school vision to “encourage all students to become successful academically and socially.”

Fostering a culture of belonging, personal pride and empowerment, along with the belief that we are a part of a community where each of us contribute in our own unique way, encourages learning to take place. Taking a Personal Mastery approach, teachers at Kenowa Hills Middle School are passionate about student success. With programs in place to help Knights behind teacher pace, and others to push well beyond into more deeper levels of learning and understanding of the curriculum, students with different strengths and areas of opportuntity will have a partner for their academic success with the educators at Kenowa Hills Public Schools.

At Kenowa Hills Middle School, learners begin to forge a clear path to their future. Through innovative programs like the Knights STEM Academy, athletics teams, fine arts groups, and clubs, it is a time for students to build confidence and experience a school community where the opportunities are endless.

At Kenowa Hills Middle School, there is a place for every learner to thrive.
