About

Our Mission

The Kew-Forest School is an intimate Preschool through Grade 12 learning community that is small by design, inclusive, and globally representative. Kew-Forest provides a safe, nurturing, and intellectually vigorous environment that inspires every student to explore and expand creative interests, to apply courageous and innovative thinking, and to become an ethical contributor to ever-widening communities. Kew-Forest students develop the skills necessary for pursuing higher education and for acquiring the essential competencies of a responsible citizen.
The Kew-Forest School opened its doors to students for the first time on September 25, 1918. Since then, its Mission and Guiding Principles have led thousands of students toward successful careers and fulfilling lives.
