Kanopolis Middle School (KMS) is a student-centered 5th and 6th grade school that provides a bridge between the elementary school and the junior high school with an enrollment of approximately 100 students. Programs offered at KMS provide a strong foundation in academics, plus opportunities to discover areas of interest through unique educational and social experiences. A balance between academic goals and human needs is stressed for this critical period of adolescent development. Students learn character development, teamwork, responsibilities, collaboration, and cooperation. They are also taught the importance of embracing diversity and the value of individual uniqueness.
