Creating an Incubator of Innovation for Students & Educators
From the glass walls and integrated presence of technology, to the ongoing teamwork of students and just-in-time facilitated learning, the physical and cultural environment is designed to:
Based on a national model out of Napa, California called The New Tech Network , this school serves as an incubator of innovation for all our schools. Students from all of our districts attend and their educators come to learn and innovate.
KIH is a project-based learning school. We encourage students of all aptitudes to visit and see if they would like to apply.
Every district has a process to apply to KIH. If interested, please talk to KIH and schedule a visit. After that, we can help you start the process to apply to KIH.
We'd love to talk more with you about whether or not KIH and PBL are a good option!
PLEASE NOTE: Prior to applying, students must "shadow" and parents are required to tour the facility.
Parents/students contact Tracy Olson after they:
- make a request to shadow through your home school guidance office.
- communicate with your teachers, too. This visit does not exempt you from completing classwork.
- contact KIH office for shadow details
PowerSchool Parent Portal
It is required that parents (for returning or new students) complete parent permissions and important medical emergency and contact information each year. You will need to login to your parent PowerSchool account to complete the process. If you have forgotten or lost your login and password, click the "Having Trouble Signing In?" link on the sign in page. Click this link for Instructions, parents who already have a KIH PowerSchool account can start at step 3 on of the instructions page.
It is important that this is completed as soon as possible.

Students need a sturdy backpack that holds and protects a laptop (15-17 inches). They need pencils for their math class, as well as inexpensive ear buds. Our school ALWAYS needs nose tissue, hand sanitizer, and Lysol wipes; none of those are required, just appreciated donations!
Students will occasionally need to dress professionally. Please plan on at least one professional dress outfit. These do NOT need to be new or expensive; just professional and neat.
Students are STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to bring a snack and drink to school. No red dye is allowed. KIH does not have snack/vending machines, nor a food service program. (Lunch is served at the home district.)
Kent Innovation High is located in a wing of the Kent Career Technical Center. Because of this, we follow their drill schedule .
All doors at KIH are locked. Parents/guardians/family members, vistors and students must enter through the main office. We appreciate your cooperation.
Mandatory meeting for NEW PARENTS TO KIH is September 2 at 6:00 p.m. We anticipate this meeting going no longer than 8:30 p.m.
We are accepting applications for incoming 9th and 10th grade students. We do accept an occasional 11th grade student under certain circumstances. Please contact the office for further information. Find the application HERE .
