About Knox

The Knox School is a dynamic and diverse community that fosters personal and intellectual growth. We provide challenging, engaging programs in a nurturing learning environment, devoting care and attention to every student. Embracing high standards of character, commitment, and achievement, The Knox School encourages students to think critically and creatively. 

Students are the most important part of our community. Their involvement in the life of Knox gives them the unique opportunity to become active participants in their personal growth. They emerge as poised and confident speakers and responsible caring citizens. The Knox School takes great pride in all their achievements and, more importantly, invests in the development of their character.

A beautiful campus, a dedicated faculty, outstanding programs, inspired leadership and engaged students all add up to the Knox experience.
