Learning Environment

The Kimberley Alternate School (KAS) offers a self-directed program for students in an alternate educational setting that is designed to meet the educational, social, and emotional needs of students. KAS offers independent, self-paced learning with direct support from teachers, education assistants, and youth workers to assist students in completing their Dogwood Diploma. 

KAS is honestly the most accepting school I have ever been to!

KAS is deeply rooted in the principles of the Circle of Courage: belonging, mastery, generosity, and independence. Students often choose to come down to KAS because they feel a strong sense of community. To further support students, KAS also collaborates with community service workers to bring social-emotional and mental health support to students.

I choose to come down to KAS because you work at your own pace, and it has a feeling of community you just don't see.
