Our goal is to enable all students to realize their greatest potential. We strive to prepare students for college and to become tomorrow's leaders. KNOVA is fulfilling this goal with an innovative, highly effective educational design serving over 400 Kindergarten through 6th grade students in the Rockwood community of Portland.
Full Day Learning
KNOVA students are provided with a longer school day and year in order for them to experience diverse and enriching learning opportunities.
Students are presented with opportunities to participate in the arts, sports, and technology in order to become well-rounded students and have diverse opportunities to learn.
Beginning the 2017-18 school year, KNOVA will no longer be offering a middle school program (grades 7-8). We will return to our previous offering of grades K-6. It is our commitment at Knova to always put the best interest of our students first. It is our belief that in doing this, as well as redoubling our focus/ investment on elementary (K-6) language arts, reading, writing, spelling, and mathematics acquisition through direct instruction, we are upholding this commitment. We understand that this is difficult for many of our middle school parents. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and as always, thank you for your continued support. Our students and families mean the world to us! To see the full letter from our Executive Director please click on the headline above.
To provide all students with the educational experiences they deserve with minimal disruptions, we respectfully ask that parents and guardians avoid late in the day early dismissals. For this reason, it is our school's policy not to dismiss students from our Main Office after 3:10 PM Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. We will not dismiss students early after 12:40 PM on Wednesdays. This will go into effect January 4th.
Thank you in advance for your support and assistance in allowing us to maximize the instructional time with our students and for respecting our safety protocols and practices to ensure student safety in and out of school.
Release time and the beginning of car line on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays will now be 3:30PM for all grades EXCEPT Kindergarten (Kindergarten will continue release at 2:30 as usual). If you are looking for after school care the Boys and Girls Club is a great resource! Click on the headline above to be linked to their website.
Knova families, there will be some changes at Knova in the next few weeks including some changes to our schedule and an earlier release time for Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. Please see the attached Letter from our Interim Executive Director for details.
