At KLS, our mixed-age learning setting encourages collaboration and authentic relationship building.

Recently, IL1, IL2, and IL3 students came together for fun activities focused on listening skills, reading comprehension, read-aloud skills, and community building across ages. Students across the Lower School were placed into small groups, with each group receiving support from an educator in case they got stalled.

In the spirit of our school model wherein everyone's a student and everyone's a teacher, our older IL3 students served as the lead facilitators for these mixed-age, small group activities.Our IL3 studentsgot a chance to grow in their leadership skills and role model for peers andyounger learners alike.
