Map of Schools

Buying a house in a school zone does not guarantee a place in that neighborhood school. 

 

KPS has many schools that have grade levels that are full.  In that case, students are involuntarily transferred to a school with room. 

 

Please contact the KPS Enrollment Office at 698-8028 to know which grade levels are full in your neighborhood school.
