2024 Summer School

The program is limited to sixty (60) students, so registration is on a first-come first-serve basis. Additionally, students need to commit to attending the 12 days of in-person class time.

2023/24 Handbook Changes
We would like to remind everyone of the changes that have been made to our student handbook for the 2023-2024 school year. This information was sent out a few weeks ago. We encourage you to read over the changes specifically within our handbook. Building Handbooks

  • The attendance policy for 2023-2024 will include all absences counting toward attendance numbers, the only exception will be hospital stays. Below are some changes we want to highlight:
  • Vacations during the school day will count toward a student's total absences.
  • Once students exceed 10% of their absences, they will be flagged by the Kent Intermediate School District.
  • Students attend approximately 180 days of school each year (10% is approximately 18 days per year. We will begin checking this mark the week of Oct. 3.
  • An example would be on day 30 of the school year. Anyone over 3 days will become flagged in the system. Parents will then be notified by the KISD, and a meeting will be held to put an attendance plan in place for the student.
  • To read all of the changes, please read through the attendance policy located in our handbook.
  • Students will no longer be allowed to order outside food/drink during school hours. (DoorDash, Uber Eats, etc.) Not only are food/drink deliveries during the school day a distraction to student learning, but could also pose a health risk for students who may have allergies and most importantly a safety concern by allowing added strangers into the building. All students will have access to free breakfast and lunch this year. There are many options that food services provide to accommodate the diverse choices of all our students.
  • Dress code is something that will continue to be addressed and looked at as we move through the year. The bottom line is clothing choices should not distract from learning. Please remind your student that not all clothing worn outside of school hours is appropriate for during school hours. Clothing should cover all undergarments and should never promote marijuana/THC, alcohol, tobacco, vaping, vulgar language, hate, and discrimination. Wearing costumes, flags, capes, masks (unless medical), and accessories that could be used to cause physical harm or classroom distraction are also prohibited. If it is determined that your student may be violating the dress code, they will be asked to change.

Nothing is more precious than your children. Find out how we work to ensure students feel safe, valued, and that they belong.

Life is busy. At Kenowa Hills, we partner with families to make life easier.


Our Personal Mastery educational experience has redefined education and has gained attention around the state and nation. Personal Mastery provides your child with personalized attention from teachers. Instead of teaching to a broad group of students without an understanding of their individual strengths and weaknesses, Personal Mastery allows teachers to interact with students individually or in small groups to help them better address their weaknesses. In this way, we strive to help your child reach their full potential.


At the home of the Knights, athletic programs are a vital part of building character, drive, commitment, and teamwork for our student athletes.


The arts build pride and community at Kenowa Hills. From our Marching Knights to musical performances at our Performing Arts Center, we believe the student experience really is a work of art.
