Welcome To Kenwood Community School

Kenwood Community School's culture of arts, academics, diversity and parent involvement sets us apart from other schools. We educate both the head and the heart. We provide students with opportunities to learn through an astonishing range of artists in our community. This is reflected in our slogan "Smarts+Arts = Kenwood School." Talk to any one of our Kenwood families and they can tell you, kids love Kenwood because our arts focus in engaging and enriching for all of our students.
