I have two children and we have been a part of this school for 7 years. My children have had teachers who are interested in seeing them prosper and excel. Teachers have modified their goals and learning plans for my children in an effort to challenge them accordingly. I have even had teachers approach the school principal in an effort to create a program that is more to my children's abilities. The principal knows every child by name and interacts, on a regular basis with the students and their parents. The teachers here are great. They recognize a child's abilities and assign additional roles. i.e. mentor, leader, etc. This is a fantastic school.

This is a great school! My kids have been going here for 5 yrs. I have been nothing but pleased with this school and how they treat the kids. I recently had to pull my kids out due to moving out of the district and if things don't work out at this new school I will be applying for open enrollment to go back to kerr. I dread having to pull them from this school. The staff here are all just wonderful and very respectful to parents and students.

Not the best.....there have been several incidents in which my 2nd grade student has given me reason to believe that her teacher should not be in the teaching field. She has made some inappropriate statements and I reported them to the principal and nothing was done about it. This was her first year teaching and she might want to consider another line of work. Teaching children is a very important job and when children go to school you want to trust that they are in good hands. My child will not be returning to this second rate school next year.

I think its a great school bt the kindergarten teacher ms chavez is not curtious for me enough she looks as if almost she puts on a fake smile towards me and I'm a parent I think that's unprofessional and I see she doesn't have the passion to teach it upsets me bc my child was in another class untill they switched him bc his class was overfull all I can say is I hope my childs learn well and gets his education which means I hope she teach better than she acts

All 3 of my kids have attended Kerr, this is my youngest's last year. I've gotten to know most of the teachers and they are great! The office staff needs to be more welcoming to parents and/or visitors. They don't come out and ask 'Good Morning/afternoon how can I help you'? They just stare at you till you ask them the question. There are a couple that are helpful but not all.

I feel that the teachers at this school are wonderful. My problem with this school is the office staff.I have never one time went felt welcomed.They make you feel like you are bothering them by coming in,or calling.I like to be involved with my childrens school,but I find myself not wanting to deal with rude people I have to go through to get to the classroom.

This school has a wonderful, diverse community. The principal and staff work hard to make this a positive factor. I feel the campus is very safe and I feel welcome at the school. The teachers really care about my child. Parent involvement is average.

My daughter is in the school band program and I have been impressed with the band teacher. I have not recieved any test scores as of yet because my daughter is a new student but she seems to be doing well so far.
