We are hosting Talk and Tours for parents to learn more about our state-of-the-art facility and to observe a school day in action. We invite parents to meet our administration team for a brief presentation and to tour our school. There are a few more available spaces open to sign up. Please sign up here to attend one of the upcoming Friday Talk and Tours.

  • Friday, 1/14 9:00- 10:30 AM
  • Thursday, 1/20 9:00-10:30 AM

Additionally, we have a limited number of Student Shadow Opportunities in January, where 5th grade students can experience a morning in the life of a Kinard middle schooler. Due to the limited number of spaces for student shadows, we ask that only students who are still undecided about their middle school selection sign up. Please sign up here for your child to participate in a student shadow opportunity.

In PSD, "option schools" do not have neighborhood boundaries, instead student enrollment is determined by the PSD School Choice policy. Information about the 2022-23 school of choice timeline and process can be found on the PSD School Choice Website. All families who would like for their child to attend Kinard must apply through the school choice process.

For questions about enrollment, registration, or anything related to attending Kinard Core Knowledge Middle School, please contact our school counselors:

For more information can also follow us on social media for additional updates and information: Facebook or Instagram.

Thank you,

Kinard Core Knowledge Middle School
