I got to Kraemer and i am in the GATE program, newspaper, and band. I love this school!
Kraemer Middle school is excellent school. there is GATE - Gift And Talent Education program. My son study in Kraemer Middle school, when he take middle school class, he also take high school class since Valencia high school is next door of Kraemer middle school. he walk to high school, Therefore, my son have more time to take a lot of AP, IB class during high school time. He is Val Tech student. Now he is in UC San Diego, Computer Science. his first year of college is already reach third year class in his college. Kraemer middle school and Valencia High school's teacher are very great!!! I am so appreciate their work. Valencia High School always win top 3 Academic Decathlon in Orange County and top 15 in State, Kraemer Middle and Valencia High are excellence and top schools!!!
My daughter just finished her eighth grade year at KMS. I am so glad that I chose for her to attend this school even though I could have sent her to another in the district. She really enjoyed all the activities that the school has to offer including the Jazz Band. She did not qualify for GATE but she did work in the Honor's classes and feels she is ready for going to Valencia HS where she was accepted into the IB Program. I saw that her teachers care about her and really helped her learn a ton. I am sure she will do well on her standardized test because her teachers taught her classes in a very engaging manner. She especially liked her Honor's Language Arts classes even though they were very demanding. She looked forward to that class everyday and her teacher would even come on weekends to support her in her dance team performances. I would strongly recommend this school to anyone who has a choice. Kraemer has improved tremendously in the past ten years and is the best middle school option for PYLUSD parents and their children-- they really teach the WHOLE child!
I love this school. it's one of the best schools I ever been too. The staff are great they are cool and goof around with the us and are very understanding.The teachers are amazing.
This school has been good educator for my child. He like this school very much and I send him there for GATE. He participate in Science Olympiad and like activities. Only one thing I change because he come home sad when his English teacher say she Christian. We have respect for all religion but she teach this and confuse him. He very nice boy and go to temple and very smart. I afraid to talk to principal. He love this school but not have same English teacher now so we hope 8th grade at Kraemer be good. PTA president very nice lady.
My teachers are nice, the facilty is nice, the students? not so much. the school is great, but some students just cant control themselves. thats the down part.
Excellent programs for every level of student. Terrific music programs too. Very supportive teaching staff and friendly student centered approach.
this school is the nest school ever . i ahev persoaly been to over 4 diffrent middle schools and this one is the best they actually care for your education here and there extra curricular activites are wonderful .
I have moved around a lot in the last few years and this school is the best i have seen. My child was not motivated and after getting enrolled in some great programs like MIT and SERV she has started to raise her grades. Teachers at this school care about their students.
I have two children who have attended Kraemer so far and both of them have absolutely loved it. The academics and activities are excellent and the teachers seem to really care about the students. Every time I enter the office, I am greeted in a friendly manner and they are always very helpful.
teachers are good but the students who want to act like gangsters make everything very bad for our good students.
This shool wow its an amazing school. The staff are amazing people, they help me alot. This school is all about peserverance and pushes there students to the extra mile. They make you feel like you belong and they do not judge my the way you look. If you feel that the classes are to high or to low they will help place you in a more sutible level. I honestly love this school. They provide so many activites for you. And this school will make your middle years the best of the best and you will never foget. Toatally recomond for your child to go here.
I attended this school in 2003 and it was a very fun and educating school. We had so many extra curricular activities, it was fun! Once a week in the quad [you] could play games done by ASB! It was the most fun I had while attending school. Definitely a good school to send your kids. Very safe environment!
Kraemer is the GATE magnet school for the PYLUSD school district. My child came to this school from a middle class school and was terrified most of the time. The GATE classes were taught at a high level, but my child had a difficult time in electives/PE where the other kids just didn't seem to care about school.
Kraemer Middle School is and continues to be a very academic focused entity. They have an excellent staff, consisting of dedicated teachers, counselors, and a number of hard working volunteers. They offer a tremendous amount of programs ranging from academics, arts, music and sports. Children are given great opportunities during their middle school years, which help develop them for their high school years.
Kraemer offers a sound standards based academic program.The students are motivated by a very professional staff. Extra curricular activities enhance student involvement. We are very happy with Kraemer.
I am on my 3rd child (all boys) through Kraemer. My first 2 children had a good experience at Kraemer with a caring and involved staff. But, I have seen an overall lack of interest and follow-up this year with respect to grades and progress reports. The Principal has a bad attitude towards overall parent involvement when it comes to grades and behavior, communication is poor. When I asked about getting tests sent home to review with my child, I was told not only by the principal but the vice principal as well that given the opportunity all children would cheat and they would not release tests. There is no communication or follow-up at the school. My older children have gone on to successful scholastic careers but, I am concerned regarding the effect of Kraemer's lack of caring on my youngest child's future education.
My child has been at Kraemer for 3 years, this year she will graduate. She has made great progress here and continues to thrive, overall enjoy this school and make transitions appropriate to reaching her goals with the excellent help of her RSP teacher. I am happy with her improvement and hope that it continues. I must comment on the other reiviews and say that children do need discipline, but the school does a great job and there may be a need for alternatives.
As a student at Kraemer Middle School, I believe that Kraemer is a great school. I've been to this school since sixth grade and I am now an eighth grader. Kraemer has many extracurricular activities that students can get involved in. Kraemer offers high school classes for eighth graders over at Valencia High School, such as: Algebra, Geometry, Biology, Japanese, and Drama. The staff at Kramer is good. There are some teachers who have been teaching for about 30 years. The good thing about that is that they are more experienced. Also, Kraemer's band, orchestra, choir, dance team, and colorguard are outstanding. Some groups students can also get involved in are ASB(eighth grade),AVID, and PAL. The activities director at Kraemer is the top activities director in California. The expectations at Kraemer are pretty high. Also the ASB class gets students involved in lunch time activities. I think Kraemer is great.
This School is a genuine place for learning. I had pleasure in letting my child attend this school, she just moved to Texas after attending the GATE program here at Kraemer and I am sure she will be well prepared for what is to come, I found that some of the councelors are a bit overwheleming to the students. In my opinion they are a bit to accusational towords the students, but most other things are great in this school I can't wait till she goes to Valencia, hopefully it will be just as good as an experiance.
