Staff to Scholar
  • Alliance KHMS recognizes that scholars need support from multiple people in their lives who can encourage their progress, so our school invites families in our community to collaborate often. We provide spaces that lift our families' voices and offer opportunities to engage in the planning of their child's education.
  • Our school is proud to have birthed several arenas that focus on racial equity. Early on, KHMS established our Black Student Union (BSU). In 2019, KHMS established an Equity Leadership Team that facilitated courageous conversations around racism and ways to dismantle oppressive systems.
