Kasson-Mantorville Elementary prides itself in its high student achievement and continuous growth with students. The Minnesota Department of Education named KMES as a 2012 and 2013 Minnesota Reward School. Reward status was given to the top 157 of all Title I schools in the state.
Kasson-Mantorville Elementary School was designed to provide students with an environment that is flexible and conducive to learning for the approximately 860 students in Kindergarten through Grade Four. The elementary curriculum has a "back to the basics" philosophy with an integrated approach to learning that gives students a connection to the real world. The math and science areas are activity-based with a "hands-on" approach. The reading and language program uses a skill-based phonetic approach combined with literature to provide students a good foundation for the reading and writing process. Technology is integrated into the curriculum areas. Continuous improvement is a way of life for the staff. Research, best practices, and staff development provide staff with the knowledge and data to give our students a quality education.
We are helping each child develop academically, socially, emotionally, and physically in a safe, respectful and student oriented environment that includes parents as partners in the learning process.
Kasson-Mantorville takes great pride in high academic standards and quality programs for students. In addition to the regular curriculum, we offer Spanish, art, music and physical education. These programs help to develop a well-rounded student. K-M Elementary has earned the distinguished Minnesota School of Excellence Award for its quality programs and high academic achievement. Kasson-Mantorville Elementary is a great place to educate students!
