    KCD is is an excellent school for many reasons: The environment really supports developing a multifacted child: a strong emphasis on academics, community, and citizenship. All students, no matter their interests, are exposed to the STEAM curriculum, the arts, academic teams and athletics. There is also plenty of opportunity for each student to “dig deep” in their personal area or areas of interest. This is true of students in the lower school through the high school. Students and parents alike will find that the sense of community at KCD is strong and inclusive. Our family, with three students enrolled across divisions, loves this school!

    I have two children at KCD and our experience here has been superb. I love that one of my kids is really into theater, because the new theater is stunning. The productions that the middle school and high school put on are so well done and state of the art. The academics are excellent at KCD. The teachers always go the extra mile and are so good a challenging the students. This year, KCD added a nutritionist. The lunch at KCD was already amazing. Now, we have an additional benefit of having even healthier food offerings. I can't say enough how much I love this school!
    We have found this school to be fabulous for our kids; the best decision we have made! It provides a top-notch education, let's the students excel in all areas (academics, athletics & arts) and has a phenomenal college guidance program. The culture is one of support and encouragement and we have found that they are more than prepared for life and college upon graduation!
