About King's Highway Elementary School
Welcome! KHS is a family. We are a united team with each member playing a crucial role in the growth, support and success of other members. Our high expectations and nurturing atmosphere help us to develop a strong partnership with our students and their families. Traditionally this partnership has helped us to score above average on both state and national standardized tests. In 1993, KHS was designated as a National Blue Ribbon School. In 2006, the PA Department of Education awarded to King's Highway the Keystone Achievement Award for meeting PSSA achievement progress for two consecutive years. Our staff believes that we have the greatest students on earth. We respect our diverse population and embrace the concept that all our students can learn and experience success. In order to ensure their learning we view the students holistically. Our classrooms are safe havens where students have daily opportunities for working in cooperative groups, experiencing hands-on activities and receiving individual assistance. Through the combined efforts of our staff, parents and our community, King's Highway students will be prepared to meet the challenges of the twenty-first century.
King's Highway Elementary School provides a safe and supportive environment which embraces mutual respect, values diversity, and is committed to the belief that all children can learn.
The mission of the King's Highway Elementary School is to provide a quality educational program that supports the academic growth and overall development of its students in order for them to become life long learners as well as productive and responsible members of our society.
