All returning Pre-K to 12th-grade students are encouraged to enroll using the online registration process, or in person during the three July enrollment sessions.
Kokomo Schools includes seven elementary (K-5) schools and three middle (6-8) schools, as each school offers unique opportunities. At the elementary level, the following programs are available: Technology Academy, International Baccalaureate, KEY (High Ability), STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), and Integrated Arts. The middle schools offer Technology Academy, International Baccalaureate, Integrated Arts, KEY, STEM, and two 8th-grade Career School programs.
Kokomo Schools offers full-day and half-day preschool programs at six sites: Sycamore, Bon Air, Boulevard, Elwood Haynes, Lafayette Park, and Pettit Park. Kokomo Schools also offers full-day preschool for qualified 3- and 4-year-olds at the Head Start Program at Darrough Chapel Early Learning Center (900 S. Goyer Road, Kokomo).
Parents should enroll their students at the school building where they will attend classes in 2019-2020. Out-of-district, non-registered, students may report to any elementary school (K-5), or middle school (6-8), for assistance.
KHS offers 25 Advanced Placement (AP) classes, while many other dual credit courses are available through the International Baccalaureate program as well as from the adjoining Kokomo Area Career Center. The International MYP (Middle Years Program) serves students in 9th and 10th grade.
KHS also is an authorized World School for the Diploma Program for International Baccalaureate students in grades 11 and 12. The first International Baccalaureate Diplomas were earned by several DP candidates in the Class of 2016. This world school authorization makes KHS one of only 22 high schools in Indiana to offer the IB Diploma Program. Further, this DP authorization makes the Kokomo School Corporation only the second school district in Indiana to offer IB programs for students in grades K through 12.
The IB Diploma Program authorization was an intense three-year process that required high-level professional development and detailed curricular development by the IB teachers. Kokomo High School also was recently authorized to offer students the International Baccalaureate Career Program (IBC). KHS is the only authorized high school offering IB Career Program in Indiana.
