KES Mission Statement:

Our mission is to provide all students with a safe and caring environment in which they can experience success academically and socially in partnership with parents and the community.


1. Every child is unique and deserves respect.
2. Every child will respect themselves and appreciate the individual differences of others.
3. Every child deserves a teacher who will provide meaningful and challenging activities that are data driven.
4. Every child will be given the opportunity to achieve the goals established in the Tennessee Standards for all content areas.


KES School Improvement Goals

1. Ninety-five percent (95%) of the students will achieve proficient or advanced in math and reading.
2. Decrease the number of students identified as at-risk in Kindergarten - second grade in reading by 10%.

Federal Law: No Child Left Behind

There are provisions under new Federal Guidelines to ensure all children are provided a quality education. Under these guidelines all children will be held to the same standard of achievement. All parents are encouraged to actively participate in their children’s education. If a school does not meet established criteria, remedial action will be put in place as detailed in the guidelines. Parents will be notified if remedial processes are implemented.
