What Our Families & Students Are Saying
A great environment for all children
KSMT has helped build confidence in my son who struggled with anxiety. The teachers and other children are all so inclusive and have such positive attitudes which makes it a great environment for all children and has a positive effect on mental health. We have enjoyed all of the performances and appreciate all of the hard work that goes into them."
