Kingman Unified School District #20 is a preschool through twelfth grade public school district. The attendance boundaries are J-shaped, reaching as far as the Colorado River, and serving over 3,000 square miles.
The district has eleven school sites with a total enrollment of over 6,800 students. Class sizes average (student – teacher) 32-1 High School, 30-1 Middle School, 27-1 Upper Elem. & 25-1 Lower Elem. KUSD curriculum follows the Arizona Academic Standards. The standards for each grade level are listed in curriculum overviews to guide teachers in classroom instruction.
The district participates in the Arizona Assessment Program, including a comprehensive District Achievement Plan which utilizes both formative and summative assessment in ELA and math. The assessments include but are not limited to: I Ready, formative assessments embedded in the AzCCRS curriculum at all grades, and quarterly benchmark assessments in ELA, math, and science for grades 2-12. We initialize the technology-enhanced computerized version of the Arizona State Standardized assessment called AzMERIT. All students in grades 3-8 take the computer version of AzMERIT for ELA and Math in the spring. Students in grades 9-12 take the computer version of AzMERIT for ELA and Math. In addition, the district employs international and national assessments for Cambridge, AP, and CTE programs.
A full spectrum of Special Education services is provided for students with special needs. We are proud of our many extra-curricular and enrichment programs. All schools share a common commitment to excellence and a safe, positive climate. Parental involvement and diversified programs create accomplishments for everyone. The district employs approximately 400 certified and 445 non-certified personnel. We offer an all-day Kindergarten program in every elementary building, and ½ day Jr. Kindergarten.
