Knightsen school is a nurturing and comfortable environment . I am currently blessed to be the President of 2nd Trimester. I recommended this school to anyone in the Oakley and Brentwood area. These classes at Knightsen are great and hold high standards. Go to Knightsen!
I feel it is a privilege to send my kids to this school. Class sizes are small, the staff is supportive of each other, the parents are actively involved. Supplies are abundant. The food is healthy, the kids participate in swimming, music and art from Kindergarten on. The principal has made some not so popular decisions but has stuck to his convictions and I commend him for that. All in all Knightsen turns out compassionate, caring well mannered educated children who are learning to THINK not just "do something"
Our family's experience at Knightsen has been extremely positive. Teachers are dedicated, open, honest and respond to parent interest well. The school is like it's own community, everybody takes a part in everything, people don't look the other way when it's not their student or their child who needs help or 'direction'. The students that are being 'raised' in the atmosphere that Knightsen School provides, are extremely aware of Others, I find this to be noteworthy. This school is working well for us and our family is proud to be part of it.
Here's an update. Knightsen is indeed going through some rough times, but the teachers there for the most part are dedicated to the kids. This is small, close knit school that continues to garner top state test scores for the county. HS teachers I have spoken with say they are glad to get Knightsen students because they are ready to learn. I have found discipline of both teachers and students to be even handed when parents are willing to speak up and do so with civility. Special ed is good. Severe budget problems and a general sense of foreboding are probably the most negative factors here. It's going to take a few years before we know if those will bring down a marvelous school community. I certainly hope not. For those looking to move to the area, the other district with similar high standards would be
this needs to be updated. the last review was 4 years ago. This school is nothing like those reviews. its about to be taken over and the education there no where near prepares kids for high school. joke
