Father Keith B.Kenny (KBK) K-8 School is one of the Superintendent’s Priority Schools. Our mission is to create a culture of excellence where we educate all students to proficiency or above in all academic areas and in character and where we provide the strong foundation needed for success in college and or career. With a laser-like focus on academic achievement, KBK’s dedicated team of lifelong learners provides students with engaging, standards-based, data driven instruction in core subjects and with valuable learning experiences in the arts (KBK is a Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts “Any Given Child” pilot school). The latest technology is used to enhance teaching and learning. At KBK, we are committed to providing our students with a learning environment that has high expectations, is rigorous, relevant, culturally-inclusive, safe, loving and that inspires all of students to believe, work hard, strive for excellence and achieve. KBK is also committed to change and continuous improvement. MESA, a music team, student leadership club and mentoring groups enhance students’ academic and social growth.
