Connecting and Supporting Families
Partnering with families is the bedrock of the KO experience.
Building a strong community requires that people share common values and work together in pursuit of both collective and individual goals. A strong community affirms that every member is important, belongs, and contributes to the common good. As KO’s motto attests, ‘one conquers by conquering oneself’—that is, by strengthening individuals, we strengthen the whole. We lift each other up, elevate each other’s voices, and celebrate our differences. We welcome parents, guardians, and families into our fold—knowing that they enrich our shared experience and animate the inclusive partnerships that define us.
As a day school, KO has a robust and active family community, and we always welcome new perspectives and helping hands. The Parent Association meets monthly to discuss various topics. If you can’t make the meetings, there’s always a way to contribute to life on campus, whether through volunteering on our Gala committee, supporting our KIT basketball tournament tradition in December, manning The Zone snack bar during midterms and finals, hosting the family Dine Around, attending informal pottery glasses, or joining a book group and more. We know you lead busy lives, so you can volunteer as much or as little as you like.
We can’t wait for you to be a part of KO. Families are what make our school the special place that it is!

“For us as parents, we have found a lot of families that are like ours, which is so nice. That’s important to our family to have those relationships and to know your child’s friend’s parents. It’s not just about the students, but the families as well.”
