The quality and diverse educational opportunities of Kokomo School Corporation are Tuition Free to ALL students. We encourage parents to visit our schools and give Kokomo Schools the opportunity to provide your students with a quality educational experience this 2013-2014 school year.
Kokomo Schools includes 7 elementary (K-5) schools and 3 middle (6-8) schools, as each school offers unique opportunities. At the elementary level, the following programs – Traditional, 1-to-1 Technology, International, KEY (Gifted & Talented), and Integrated Arts – are available, while our middle schools offer Traditional, International, KEY, and Career programs.
Our two Traditional elementary schools – Boulevard on the west side and Elwood Haynes on the east side – provide a rich traditional curriculum, including reading, writing, math, science, and social studies. Our two 1-to-1 Technology elementary schools – Bon Air and Pettit Park – will provide personal computing devices for all students to use during the school day.
Our International elementary schools – Lafayette Park and Sycamore – allow students to experience real-world projects with a global focus. All International students study Spanish. Our Integrated Arts elementary school at Wallace offers a curriculum that includes dance, keyboarding, and guitar, as well as other opportunities to enhance academic learning through the arts.
Our KEY program at the elementary level is located at Sycamore and is designed for students who have been found to be eligible due to exceptional gifts, talents, motivations, or interests. Curriculum for KEY students is accelerated and enriched, while KEY teachers receive intense professional development training.
At the middle school level, a Traditional program is available at Maple Crest as well as a Career School for 8th graders. The International and KEY programs are housed at Central, while Bon Air offers a 1-to-1 Technology program where each student receives a personal computing device during the school day.
Parents should enroll their students at the school building where they will attend classes in 2013-2014. Out-of-district, non-registered, students may report to any of the elementary schools (K-5) or the middle school (6-8) for assistance. The first day of school for Kokomo School Corporation students is Thursday, August 8, 2013.
At K-8 enrollment, Kokomo Schools parents will be asked to review, or complete, a Registration Report for their children. Information concerning Transportation services will be shared at these enrollment sessions. Students who are eligible for bus transportation, either to their school of residence, or to their school of choice – International, 1-to-1 Technology, KEY, or Career – will receive their bus information during these enrollment sessions.
Students in grades 9-12, who attended and completed the 2012-2013 school year in Kokomo Schools, are already enrolled for the 2013-2014 school year. Parents of other students who are interested in enrolling their children at Kokomo High School are asked to call the high school office (455-8040) to make an appointment. A parent or guardian must accompany high school students enrolling for the first time at KHS.
KHS offers 18 Advanced Placement (AP) classes, while many dual credit courses are available at the high school and the adjoining Kokomo Area Career Center. The International program expands to the 10th grade this school year, as all 9th and 10th graders will be provided with a personal computing device for use during the school day.
A new alternative education program at the high school – Twilight School – offers supervised employment experiences and high school courses. Twilight School is in session in the evenings Monday through Thursday from 3 to 8 p.m. and on Fridays from 3 to 6 p.m.
