Our vision at NKSD is to empower every student to become a confident, resourceful, imaginative, and empathetic individual, ready to thrive in an ever-evolving world. Our mission is to create a secure, cooperative, and purposeful learning atmosphere that caters to each student's unique strengths and needs. We hold core values that emphasize dedication to growth, fostering high expectations, embracing diversity and inclusion, and striving for continuous improvement. At NKSD, we believe in nurturing both the heart and the mind, and we are committed to building strong relationships within our community.
We recognize that every student is an individual with a unique learning style, personality, passion and talent. That's why we are committed to providing learning environments and academic interests that fit every student.
A Signature Program is a stand-alone program that is focused on either a unique learning environment or academic interest. These programs are hosted at one of our current school campuses in North Kitsap School District. A Signature Program may be partial day or full day, depending on the focus of the program. Student admission is conducted through a district-wide application process and lottery that is open to all students who will be enrolled in the grade levels served by the Signature Program.
