Principal's Message

Dear Knollwood Families,


Welcome to Knollwood Preparatory Academy.  Our staff provides an exemplary instructional program and our focus is student success.  We strive for students to experience a well-rounded program that helps them harness their uniqueness and strengths. 


The elementary school years are an exciting time of learning and growth for our students.  These years provide students with the opportunities to begin a love for reading, to explore new interests, and to expand skills while discovering personal strengths.  We strive to support students through these years of growth. 


Our mission is to educate successful, responsible, caring, respectful, trustworthy and inquisitive students prepared to contribute to an ever-changing world.  We will encourage life-long learning, high academic achievement, and concern for others.  With the assistance of committed parents, a challenging standards-based academic program, inspirational teachers, and a visionary administration, Knollwood will foster a culture where children are empowered to be responsible and accountable partners in their learning.


At Knollwood Preparatory Academy, students participate in innovative and challenging programs aligned to the standards, which encourage them to explore their talents, achieve academic success and demonstrate their knowledge in a variety of meaningful ways.  It is our goal to help students develop into knowledgeable, respectful and caring individuals with an acceptance of diversity, a strong work ethic, and the skills necessary to become positive, contributing members of society.  All stakeholders work cooperatively as a school family to create a safe and supportive environment that fosters learning and personal growth.  Our three expected behaviors: Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible. 


You, as parents, are the most critical part of our school success.  You take an active and crucial role in providing at atmosphere that promotes education and quality work habits.  Your support provides the foundation for students to come ready to learn.  I strongly encourage you to be an active part of your child’s education by making sure they get to school on time and attend school regularly.  Please ensure that your child reads each and every night. 


You will find your child’s teacher is your best resource and I encourage you to build a positive partnership with them.  I look forward to working with you as partners in educating your children.  I am honored to be your Principal at Knollwood and I look forward to working with our community. 


Sincere Wishes and Warmest Regards,

Cecilia Salazar, Principal
