Students Working

 Children will learn at their highest level.  

Dr. Kelly Burgess

In Kannapolis City Schools you will get an unwavering dedication by the professionals to high student achievement.  We can be proud of the past.  Morehead, Caldwell, and Rhodes scholars are our history.  Business leaders, community leaders, politicians, teachers, administrators, doctors, dentists, nurses, you name it, we have helped produce it.  How did that happen?  It happens when all the community comes together to support each child in their efforts to learn.  It happens when people care.  It happens when parents support their child and make school a priority.  It happens when schools are innovative, delve deep in professional development, and have a commitment to continuous improvement. 

The Kannapolis City Schools of 2018 and beyond is not the same system you once knew.  It is still strong in its commitment to children, parents and community.  However, it is more innovative and responsive than ever.  From a transition to performance based report cards in Grades K-6 to iKann online teaching and learning in the high school, to cooperative initiatives with local universities and all the stops in between, we are preparing children for their future.  By placing your child in our school system you can guarantee they will be able to: 

  • Study STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math)
  • Study the Arts
  • Attend schools in which learning to read well and comprehend is THE focus
  • Be led by the best trained teachers on Reading 3-D
  • Have teachers with the finest math training
  • Go to a high school with the finest facilities and trained professionals in STEM, the Arts, Career Education, and Exceptional Children's programs
  • Be prepared for college and a career

More important than all of these, Kannapolis City Schools is a place where your child, with the support of families and teachers, will feel safe to learn. The Kannapolis Police Department has conducted safety assessments at each of our schools.  We have made positive changes in our schools and procedures as a result of these assessments.  We take the safety of our children serious. 

Collaboration for continuous improvement is the cornerstone of innovation in Kannapolis City Schools.  As parents you will know how important teaching and learning are to your child's teachers.  This is made clear through the high expectations we have for the children and the clear reporting of the academic goals.  KCS offers opportunities for your child to learn what they need to learn in the way they learn best.  Our schools are also dedicated to providing the best technology assistance possible for the children.  

Kannapolis City Schools should be your choice for your child.  There is no higher standard of support than that which your child will have with the cooperation and collaboration of the parent and the school.  Your child matters to us.
