KGMS LEGACY FUND
The KGMS Legacy Fund allows the opportunity for our community to support our school as we work to empower students with learning differences such as dyslexia, ADHD, anxiety and autism. Every little bit helps, and your donation will go towards helping finance the ever-increasing costs of providing the specialized programming needed to assist our student population in moving past their learning obstacles so they may experience success and a sense of pride in their abilities.
All donations made towards the KGMS Legacy Fund will go towards helping kids who are in need of a unique learning experience to thrive educationally.

THE BEST OF ME GALA
The KGMS Best of Me Gala was held virtually on May 1, 2021. This year’s event took on an even greater importance than ever before as we raised over $150,000 to go towards our Bursary Fund, which supports kids who are struggling with their education, and their families, many of whom have been impacted financially by the COVID-19 crisis. The Best of Me Gala helped open the doors to learning for many deserving children. We could not have reached our goal without the help from our sponsors, auction donors and many volunteers. Their support and generosity helped make our school accessible to the many students who deserve the specialized learning experience that KGMS excels at providing.
History of KGMS

We empower students by unlocking and removing obstacles to learning so that each child can experience personal growth and academic achievement. Our school specializes in educating and growing the confidence of students with dyslexia, ADHD, anxiety, autism and other learning challenges in Grades K – 12 and our approach is designed to develop the whole child.
