About School


A Message from Our Principal

Dear Kennesaw Mountain community,

Since the school's founding in 2000, Kennesaw Mountain Mustangs have been leaders in academics, the arts, athletics, and acts of service. Our students excel in the classroom, on the stage, and on the fields. You can find KMHS students serving future Mustangs, peers, and the community on a continual basis. Our students have opportunities to care for others and to assist in making the world a better place through Shop with a Mustang, The Dance, a Power of Peace project, City of Kennesaw events, and Horizon field special needs baseball games-- just to name a few.

Our mission remains to be "a community of learners committed to student success." We do this by seeking to fulfill our vision where "all KMHS students are career or college ready." Through excelling in academics, performing or creating a work of art, displaying character in competition, or serving those around us, we strive to lead our students toward that career or college readiness.

We work consistently to develop a sense of family with students, parents, staff, and the community. Families are not always perfect, but one thing that we know about the Mustang family is that they will always have our back and that they want what is best for us. Families will cry with us in the sad times, encourage us in the difficult times, and celebrate with us when we overcome obstacles or meet and surpass our goals. It is with this in mind that Kennesaw Mountain goes about completing our mission of seeking student success. We look forward to celebrating the many ways in which KMHS students continue to demonstrate that success. 

We can only accomplish our mission by partnering with you. While our students are with us for about 7 hours a day over 178 days, they spend even more time with you. Even in high school, your support and influence cannot be underestimated. Thank you for all you do to support our students.

Go Mustangs!
