Building[edit]

KM High School is one of three buildings within the KM campus which also includes a middle school and elementary school with a community education wing. In the fall of 2017 a community approved expansion was completed that added a magnificent commons area, new classrooms for S.T.E.M. education, vocation tech, agriculture, industrial tech, music and consumer sciences. Also a new auditorium, media center, kitchen and cafeteria and a Safe and Secure entrance. .[2]

KH HS was previously the largest school in the area in which the middle and high schools shared a building. The middle school section, which held grades 7 and 8, had a capacity of approximately 300 students. The high school, grades 9-12, held approximately 600. The middle and high school programs also shared certain areas, such as art and FACS. The building is now used solely for high school classes. A new middle school building for grades 5-8 opened for classes in September 2009.

The building contains two separate gymnasiums.
