“KO is a very tight-knit school. You’re going to know everyone by face if not by name. It’s very judgment free. We celebrate the differences in us, and that’s what brings us together because no person is an exact copy and paste of one another. We want you to grow in your strengths and work on your weaknesses in a productive way.”
