  • For four decades, Katherine Michiels School (KMS) has served Bay Area children and families.
  • We pride ourselves on providing high-quality, affordable education within a nurturing, child-centered environment.
  • Our mission is to foster each child`s experience of the world so that he or she can blossom to potential and become a compassionate, autonomous and contributing member of society.
  • KMS has chosen the humanistic, progressive pedagogies of the Reggio Emilia educational approach and Council in Schools as our educational compass.
  • Both approaches see the child as a competent and equal partner in the educational journey.

Absolutely the best place to send your child Hands down! I have been sending my children here since they were two and a half years old now they are 10 and 6. The girls absolutely love their school and respect and admire their teachers (especially Randall). I can honestly say that my girls are " in touch" with the environment, the community and most importantly themselves. KMS takes a different approach to teaching and interacting with children fostering confidence and independence in each student. My girls are inquisitive, analytic, emotionally intelligent. I am a native San Franciscan and a product of tough -old fashioned public schools. I know the difference in quality and individualized focus my children get and I''m glad they are a part of KMS.
