Welcome to the 2023-24 school year! 

Kent County Public Schools (KCPS) is the smallest school system in Maryland, serving approximately 1,800 students in five schools; three elementary, one middle and one high school.

Although we are small, the size of our school system affords many opportunities to personalize student learning.

The KCPS Strategic Plan outlines critical district goals for educating students and supporting our workforce. The KCPS Strategic Plan includes our mission and vision statements, and outlines the core values that guide and support academic achievement. We employ many exceptional teachers and staff who continue to focus and shape our school system in a way that exemplifies excellence. Achieving our goals and improving measurable academic outcomes requires focused commitments from our staff, families, community, and business partners.

We welcome your partnership as we prepare students for success in post-secondary education and career pathway goals. Our outstanding staff provides many opportunities to our students, and we need your support to succeed.

Please become involved in your school, attend school events and join the PTA.

We pledge to continue achieving excellence in the coming year and look forward to celebrating the many successes our schools will accomplish this year. Together, let’s make this a great year for everyone!

Dr. Karen M. Couch
