School Profile

Our faculty reflects the diversity of our students. We have Title I Math and Reading teachers, two Varying Exceptionalities classrooms with certified ESE teachers, as well as, two CBS classrooms and a PK-D classroom. We also have an SLD teacher, a gifted teacher, a Media Specialist, a Speech/Language therapist, Art, and a Physical Education teacher. 27.8% of the faculty has an advanced degree. Three of our Kenwood teachers have earned National Board Certification. Teachers volunteer their personal time to provide extra help one-on-one or in small groups before and after school. Our Technology Lab is staffed by instructional personnel four mornings each week before school to supply tutoring to students. To ensure that our students continue to be given opportunities for growth in the creative arts, Kenwood has developed a “wheel” schedule that allows all classrooms to participate in Art once a week, while attending P.E. four times per week. Kenwood students are also award-winning Odyssey of the Mind participants with invitations to State and World competition. Our students also investigate science concepts at Science Night, sponsored by the Emerald Coast Science Center.

Kenwood has been named a pre-CHOICE school for Aviation and Aerospace Engineering and will also implement the Civil Air Patrol ACE (Aerospace Connections in Education) program which is a K-5 supplementary curriculum that encourages STEM education and promotes good character traits and physical fitness, as well as, an awareness of the aerospace workforce. In 2010, Kenwood was named the National CAP ACE school of the year. Upper elementary students work with Lego WeDo Robotic Kits to enhance engineering skills.

Parent involvement is evident at our school. We have a strong volunteer program whose participants work with students, assist teachers with projects, and contribute in a variety of other ways. As a result, Kenwood received the Golden School Award for the third year in a row. Kenwood also received the prestigious Five Star School Award for the 2009-2010 school year. Kenwood has an active PTO which provides our teachers with funds to enhance their classrooms, while also providing our children with experiences on which to build their memories. We have a Fall Carnival, Field Days, Book Fairs, Breakfast with Santa, and many other events which offer our parents an opportunity to spend quality time with their children in their learning environment.

Kenwood earned an A+ for the 2011 and 2012 school years. As part of a high performing district and a Title I school, Kenwood will continue to work toward meeting the needs of all students. Our highly qualified teachers and classroom assistants will provide daily support for reading and math through individual and small group instruction in and out of the classroom. We believe it is important that students learn and achieve, therefore, each student will be challenged at his or her instructional level.
