At KIS our co-curricular program supplements students’ personal and academic growth. Each school day students meet with their advisory group or a club.
KIS co-curriculars encourages students to explore new interests and develop their talents!
KIS elementary school offers a new rotation of age and developmentally appropriate after school clubs each trimester. Each club is designed to give students concentrated time to explore a single activity like rock climbing, math games, 3D printing or hip hop dance. Other choices have included Lego building, stop motion animation, battle of the books, etiquette, stagecraft and knitting. Club advisors share their own expertise but also respond to the trends and interests of the elementary student body, keeping the after school club program engaging!
At the middle school level, teachers’ own athletic, art and service interests shape club selection and students enjoy new choices each semester. Badminton, Cheer, Karaoke, World Scholar’s Cup, MUN, Comic Book club, Sew Crafty, Movie Making club, and Calling All Artists are all recent offerings! Middle school teachers may also sponsor students who propose and organize a student-led club such as OneKIS or the Sustainability club.
At the high school level, all clubs are proposed and led by students. The options illustrate a diversity of passions: Project Echo centers on poetry, DECA features business discussions, ToonDay students workshop their illustrations; Rock Climbing, Badminton and Ping Pong clubs cater to sport interests; and both MUN and Speech & Debate teach strong research, problem solving and research skills.
