Mission Statement

The mission is to provide a positive learning environment that meets the unique needs of adolescents and their supporters.

Vision Statement

Kaimuki Middle School is a place with heart that challenges and strengthens the mind, body, and spirit.

General Learner Outcomes (GLOs)

To support our Mission of providing "a positive learning environment that meets the unique needs of adolescents and their supporters", KMS has adopted the General Learner Outcomes (GLOs) as its schoolwide learner outcomes. The GLOs serve as the essential overarching goals for all grade levels, and all of the academic disciplines. Every content standard and every benchmark should support the learner's progress towards these outcomes because they enable learners to lead full and productive lives.

These General Learner Outcomes do not exist in isolation, but should be an integral part of the school culture as demonstrated in daily classroom instruction and assessment. They are:
  • Self-directed Learner (The ability to be responsible for one's own learning)
  • Community Contributor (The understanding that it is essential for human beings to work together)
  • Complex Thinker (The ability to demonstrate critical thinking and problem solving)
  • Effective Communicator (The ability to communicate effectively)
  • Effective and Ethical User of Technology (The ability to use a variety of technologies effectively and ethically)
  • Quality Producer (The ability to recognize and produce quality performance and quality products)

 

KMS Behavior Standards

Our KMS Behavior Standards (the "4Rs") represent qualities that contribute to the embodiment of our Vision "...a place with heart that challenges and strengthens the mind, body, and spirit". By incorporating the GLOs, in coordination with the 4Rs, into many facets of the school, KMS students are truly living the school's Mission and Vision each day.
