KTHS students need support, resources, and individualized instruction. It is our goal to provide all students with a positive, success-oriented curriculum. The Maryland College and Career Ready Standards and Universal Design for Learning techniques are embedded in all lessons. KTHS uses Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) to foster student growth, both academically and behaviorally.
In addition to core academic classes, students may take electives in art, music, drama, foreign language, technology, physical education, and reading. Experiential and cross-curricular instruction include, for example, a crime scene investigation involving government, science, math, and graphic design classes as well as annual artist residencies in slam poetry, visual arts, and Capoeira Angola.
Career and technology programs of study, which can also be taken as elective classes, include child development, entrepreneurship and business management, hospitality management (culinary skills), restaurant management, and college/career research and development. A highlight of KTHS is the job internship program, in which students engage in relevant workplace experiences at job sites with professionals and mentors and participate in employment readiness, leadership, and future planning seminars.
