Forming The Future, We Are

Growth Minded

In order to change our current state, we must understand our past, visualize our future, and start taking steps towards it in the present. Our community and relationships empower our students to do this. 

Why Should You Consider KPH?

Resillency | Perserverence | Creativity | Compassion | Intimacy

KPH not only provides strong programs for students that lead them to opportunities after high school, but grows and matures them socially, emotionally, and allows them to access their intellectual potential. 


Our Core Pillars

Students | Parents | Staff | Partners

“It is no exaggeration to say that today at KPHS the faculty and staff are all breathing lighter and dreaming larger under the new leadership of Dr. Keith Adams. Their dreams and goals are to improve academic outcomes for students through simultaneously providing them with more opportunities for academic and enrichment activities in a safe and healthy environment in order to nurture their psychological needs.”

–LNSA Leader and Community Partner, January 2020.

Our Identity

Our school is no longer known as KP. Now KPH, our school is safer and healthier than it has ever been. Our students are engaged, our community is leaning in, and our staff and faculty are excited to be part of our future.

With all that we have done in our short time this school year, we're excited for the days, months, and years ahead. We are the Heart of Hermosa, and we have not only listened but have learned from our past and are living for the future!

It's in that vein we are here. If you are looking to change your future, you are welcomed here.

"I love the work that's happening and I am seeing how God is moving things around to make this place better!

Well, people around the school are worried about safety, they are worried about gangs.  I decided to volunteer and come into the school to offer some support for my kids because I wanted to make things better. I was ok with volunteering and making less money at the time and now I work here full time. It's about making what you have better!"

- Ms. Vivian Figueroa

We Listen.

It's what we do as the Heart of Hermosa.

To say we listen means nothing if you do not actually put things into action. Because we have listened, our C.o.R.E values have allowed us to...
