Principal Molitor PictureMessage from the Principal

I can’t wait to get the school year started as my third year as principal here at Kaleidoscope Academy. We worked hard over the past two years to truly strengthen our charter vision and mission. We are dedicated to being a place where students have a voice and choice in their learning through hands-on projects, inquiry based learning, arts integration, and numerous elective classes to best suit their needs. Through our charter contract, we are able to do learning differently and be innovative in our practices in order to best meet the needs of the young adolescents that walk through our doors each day. Kaleidoscope Academy attracts staff members that are willing to think outside the box, go above and beyond for students, and provide an overall exceptional educational experience. We are so excited to welcome you and your child to Kaleidoscope to the 2023-24 school year. It’s going to be the best school year yet!

I look forward to meeting you. Never hesitate to reach out to provide feedback, ask questions, set up a time to meet, or schedule a visit of the school. The partnerships we have with parents and families is a critical part of what makes us successful here at Kaleidoscope.
