School Culture and Climate:
At Kensington we use Responsive Classroom techniques and strategies to create a supportive environment that helps students develop self-esteem, respect, and learn to appreciate the power of learning. Here children are encouraged to pursue learning’s two most important components: curiosity and exploration. We believe that within a positive school climate that builds each student’s self-esteem in a risk free academic environment, when combined with well-trained and caring teachers, we are maximizing the potential for each student to achieve success.
The Arts at Kensington:
Music and art are important aspects of the PYP that provide children with creative outlets as they begin their journey of self discovery, the cornerstone of becoming culturally aware and responsible people. We are confident that by encouraging students to lead a well balanced life that incorporates intellectual, artistic and physical pursuits we will see them blossom into responsible, open-minded, caring citizens of the world.
Family Involvement at Kensington:
At Kensington Avenue Magnet School we take great pride in our active family and community partnerships that help to foster a spirit of cooperation between home and school and allows us to nurture each child. By working side-by-side with parents we are able to help children’s hopes and dreams begin, grow and come alive!
