Kamiah School District #304 Mission statement: 

The Kamiah Joint School District 304 Partners with students, parents, and community members to ensure a safe, nurturing environment where students are expected to achieve academic excellence, personal responsibility, and success while engaged in life-long learning and at the same time demonstrating respect for community values and diversity. 

We are honored to welcome parents, teachers, district staff and over 425 students back from summer break.  As we welcome our incoming freshmen to Kamiah High school, we are confident that last year’s seniors left our school "college and career ready."  Kamiah Joint School District graduates go on to succeed in a wide variety or professions including business, academics, government services and many other occupations.

Improving student achievement goes beyond academics and extra-curricular activities. It means seeking new ways to stretch taxpayers support by being good stewards of their investment. At the beginning of every school year, we face unanticipated challenges and have the opportunity to improve as the year progresses. We will always work to address critical issues transparently, involving community members in the difficult decisions regarding our classrooms, school students and District. We will continue to collaborate with our parents and community members. 

We acknowledge and celebrate that all staff, all entities, and all community members raise student’s achievement. In so doing, we prepare each student to be successful, and our students develop a strong sense of community. 

I’d like to invite any interested patron to come visit our schools, or contact us if you have any questions that we can assist you with. Please take time to experience the rich academic and athletic tradition that we have and the wonderful community in which we live. On behalf of our District, please accept my thanks for your support of our school and our students and, on a personal level, for the opportunity to work with you as your superintendent. 

Sincerely, 

 

Fred Mercer
Superintendent
