The school is being a teacher and a parent !! All the comments is pointing fingers at the school! But really the parents need to Focus on their child!! How do you expect your Child to respect the school if your child does not respect you as a parent! The kids are between 11-13 it too much redirecting the students! So parents please take some blame for your child behavior!!! KAO is a great place to learn very positive atmosphere!!! Mrs. Gray is the best !!
The teachers are really trying, but the staff CANNOT handle the students there. The dean, Mr. Washington seems too stressed out to do his job well. My child doesn't even want to go to school because of the bullying by other students. I don't even feel safe going to this campus with the number of fights and problems they have. I will NOT recommend this school ever again!
I worked as a substitute. The classes were dirty, student screamed and curse at the staff. No one attempted the work. I was threatened three times and then sent home when a student jumped on my back and threatened to shoot me, because I took a belt he was whipping two female students with in the classroom. Shut this school down!
I've been at this school for 4 years and it has gotten worse each year. This year is the worse by far. EVERY teacher left after the 2013-2014 year, including Ms. Patel. There is no discipline. There are numerous fights every day. There is no consequence for wrongdoing. There don't even have detention anymore. I have sent numerous emails to the school "leader", admins, teachers and the executive board. I would STRONGLY urge you to not go to this school or, at the very least, just show up and see for yourself. Go to the office and see how the kids act and decide for yourself. If I could do it over again, I would NOT choose this school for my child.
This is my 6th grade daughter's first year at KAO and i am impressed with the academics for sure. Her teacher are very involved and I NEVER have an issue with communication. Some of the office staff could stand some attitude tweaking, but for the most part...I can't complain.
