KHS Mission Statement

Kestrel Heights School provides an environment where academics are emphasized, where children are encouraged to excel and perform at their maximum potential and that promotes creativity and excellence in accordance with the Paideia Principles.

What is a Paideia School?

Principles of a Paideia Education

That all children can learn

That, therefore, they all deserve the same quality of schooling, not just the same quantity

That the quality of schooling to which they are entitled is what the wisest parents would wish for their own children, the best education for the best being the best education for all

That schooling at its best is preparation for becoming generally educated in the course of a whole lifetime, and that schools should be judged on how well they provide such preparation

That the three callings for which schooling should prepare all Americans are

  1. To earn a decent livelihood,
  2. To be a good citizen of the nation and world, and
  3. To make a good life for one's self

That the primary cause of genuine learning is the activity of the learner's own mind, sometimes with the help of a teacher functioning as a secondary and cooperative cause
