Thank you for visiting our website, and for taking time to learn about our school family. Kenston Forest School is a happy place, a place where all who enter gladly learn and gladly teach.

We are a family school, where parents and grandparents are welcome partners to inspiring mentor-teachers and coaches, where all adults share a bright, optimistic vision of what children become.

We are proud of our school and excited to help you learn more about us. I hope you will visit us and that you, too, will become part of our Kenston Forest family.

Testimonials

Thank you all so much for the role that each of you played in my children’s education. Honestly, you know that private school tuition can be a burden for some of our families (mine included), but I always think of the words shared with me by our former librarian who encouraged me with this: “I’ve never regretted the sacrifices I had to make to send my child to KFS.”
