The KWoods Difference


Kensington Woods Mission

To prepare each student for success in college, career and life through an engaging, challenging and innovative educational program that is student-centered and promotes character and values.

Our Commitment

We are committed to providing an environment where students can:

  • Develop intellectual and academic potential to the fullest degree and prepare for college and future challenges;

  • Relate education to relevant, real world experiences by exercising active citizenship and developing individual potential and social responsibility;
  • Discover responsibility for individual learning and personal lives as well as empathy for all people;
  • Become independent, confident thinkers who regard education as an enriching life-long ambition;
  • Develop strong character, affirming the worth and dignity of each individual.
  • Plan for college, career and life.

Principal's Message

Kensington Woods is a small, personal middle and high school with a college preparatory focus located in Livingston County. Established in 1995, Kensington Woods is one of Michigan’s oldest and most established charter schools.

In our environment of high engagement and high expectations, we believe that with the guidance and instruction of our teachers and staff, students feel encouraged to bring their best and be empowered to take charge of their learning, building the skills and acquiring the knowledge necessary to achieve success in college and become lifelong learners. Here you will find a strong school culture centered on the principles of hard work, high expectations, personal responsibility and powerful thinking. 

Kensington Woods is a different kind of place where our students value the unique qualities of our school. Our academic content is driven by the Michigan Merit Curriculum, SAT college readiness standards and real life connections.  Our instruction is founded on best practices in educating the whole child and the foundation of our success is building strong and positive relationships with our students.

I invite you to explore our website to find out more about the Kensington Woods difference. To experience Kensington Woods first hand, please feel welcome to contact us to schedule a guided tour of our school.
