What Makes Us


Departing from traditional grading systems, our self-paced and mastery-based approach begins in lower school. Students can also participate in dual enrollment classes at Foothill College as early as their first year of high school.

About Us


Students are co-creators of their own education, engaging them in decisions about what, when, and how they learn. In doing so, KLS helps prepare students not only with academic knowledge, but also with the skills of self-direction, curiosity, creativity, and collaboration that they’ll need for future success.


Experiential Learning

An emphasis on experiential learning translates to outdoor education, travel, field trips, internships, peer-teaching, and applied learning opportunities.
