A message from our principal

Kimberly Clark, principal

Welcome to Kenwood Leadership Academy! Here at Kenwood Leadership Academy we are committed to our mission of seeing, inspiring, and empowering the lifelong learner and leader in all of us.

We are a unique neighborhood Magnet School serving students preschool to 5th grade. We are rich in diversity and pride in establishing a culture that emphasizes leadership. We are recipients of the Merit Award of Excellence from Magnet Schools of America, and have also been recognized as a Leader in Me Lighthouse School. These honors are given to schools who exhibit evidence of creating cultures of academic excellence, diversity, innovation curriculum, high quality instructional systems, and effective partnerships (family and community).

Kenwood Leadership Academy is an amazing place to be with passionate and dedicated staff diligently seeking to serve. We are excited to have you be a part of our community and look forward to developing the leader in your child.
