A Community of Learners - Kensington Woods High School


A Community of Learners

Through a focus on subject area integration and developing 21st century skills like creativity, collaboration, critical thinking and communication, learning at Kensington Woods is a student-centered exploration of content and is relevant to students’ lives, while still aligned to the Michigan Merit Curriculum.

At Kensington Woods, we know that for students to succeed, they must engage in their classes and their learning environment. Students and teachers collaborate with each other, creating a culture of a community of learners, where students are accepted for who they are. An emphasis is placed on developing strong relationships between students and teachers, with high expectations created for students. Research shows that when students have a strong connection with a teacher and are held to high expectations, they engage more with their learning and achieve more. Class sizes are kept small, allowing for students to get the one-on-one attention they deserve.

Kensington Woods offers students many unique learning opportunities, all with the goal of developing graduates who are active citizens, independent thinkers and lifelong learners that are prepared for college and career. Learn more about these opportunities by visiting the links on the left.
