Commitment to Excellence and Educating the Whole Child
The Keppel Union School District’s mission for educating all students is to seek education, strive for excellence, and aspire to greatness. Our classified, certificated and administrative staff creates and ensures a positive learning environment where student safety, academic success, and social and emotional needs are our highest priorities.
We promote inspired teaching focused on creativity and innovation, critical thinking and problem solving, effective communication, collaboration and other 21st Century skills. Students are taught by skilled teachers who use researched based instructional strategies supported with academically rigorous standards based curriculum. All teachers regularly engage in discussions centered on data analysis with the goal of continuous improvement. Ultimately we prepare students to be successful learners, college and career ready and for life as productive contributing citizens.
We engage parents as partners through a variety of venues including surveys and frequent community forums so that we can respond to our students and parents in a timely manner. Our Local Control Accountability Plan reflects the priorities of our families and community while addressing state accountability expectations. We celebrate each of our schools’ successes including two California Distinguished Schools and other award winning programs. Each school has a uniquely concentrated focus on music, STEAM, the arts, AVID, media production and the GATE icons. Our parents know that successful learning is the key to a better and brighter future for their children and help us maintain a commitment to excellence for all of our students.
We, in Keppel Union, educate the whole child and place our efforts and valuable resources towards achieving the absolute best educational outcomes for the children in our care.
