From Kingswood Oxford School

Every day at KO is designed just for day students, 100% day students, 100% of the time. Kids thrive at KO because they are the center of everything we do. Strong friendships are forged through shared experiences of wading into Trout Brook to analyze its water quality, earning the privilege of grabbing a snack at Blue Back Square, and creating strong partnerships locally, regionally, and internationally.

As a day school, KO creates and fosters an inclusive community that includes the most important people in each student’s life - teachers, advisors, coaches, friends, and family. This balanced approach of support gives every student the widest range of resources to ensure academic success and emotional health. Teachers and advisors know their students well and are always ready to meet specific needs. Students benefit from 360 degrees of daily perspective and just the right amount of guidance. They learn that they can push themselves farther than they ever thought.
