The school is on it's 3rd principal in 6 years and by far the worst principal to date. She is a control freak who thinks she knows your child better than you do. Teachers are over worked, classes are big and cliques still exist. My guy has lost interest in school, doesn't care and will be pushed through just so they won't have to deal with him for another year. All because they couldn't listen to the concerns of the parents. So sad. Kid has been here since Kindergarten and I have watched the light in his eyes grow dimmer and dimmer. Just another statistic. No one cares. Kendallvue sucks and so does Jefferson County.

I agree with the previous statement that if your child has special needs or is on an IEP this school is NOT FOR YOU! I have been in the neighborhood for a month and for the first two weeks I was welcomed whole heartedly with promises of being able to help my kiddo and are now trying to isolate him by offering another school option very disappointing! I do like that my son really likes his school and wishes he could stay there I wish they would encourage more diversity and educate themselves and their children more about that such as special needs children.

We have had three kids go through Kendallvue and have been extremely happy with the education they received. The teachers are very involved and care deeply for the kids. I love this school!

My 1st grader LOVES school, but my 4th grader is complaining lately of a lot of bullying going on. This must start in later grades because up to this year the school was fantastic! I really appreciate that the 1st to 3rd graders all have very small class sizes and it really does help them to thrive. And the teachers are fantastic!!. It does stink that the 4th, 5th and 6th graders have such large classes because of budget cuts and there are more problems arising. My daughter was recently complaining about the bullys and wants to move schools. It makes me sad that my older one was so happy and now that is gone. I think the school is suffering after the loss of Mr. Nestorick, he was phenomenal as principal.

Kendallvue is a wonderful. My daughter is in her second year here after we moved to the neighborhood. We moved from another Jeffco school that we were happy with and we were thinking about keeping her there. We absolutely made the right choice into bringing her here. We have found the teaching staff both highly effective academically and empathically. Whenever I have reached out to the staff or leadership they have been responsive. Also, the other children are very kind to each other and I believe that this reflects the school culture.

I am very disappointed in this school. Sure if your child has NO special needs, then they might be fine. If your child even needs a little extra help, forget it. There are a couple of teachers who went out of there way to help my son, but a couple does not cut it. My son is not special needs but needs a little extra attention and did not receive it. There solution was to isolate him every chance they got and that affected him greatly socially. There is also a big problem with bullying. I have never seen such a large group of mean kids in a long time. Please send your children somewhere else.

I am highly disappointeed with the test scores for this school. WHen comparing the state average to Kendallvue you can see that the scores here are lower then that. My son suffers from the lack of instruction by the teachers. The teachers are overloaded and receive no help or guidance from the principal. I guess this shows because the principal has now been sent to work at a lower functioning school. It is my hope that the office staff goes with him like they came with him. They are unfriendly and rude like the presence of the parents inconveniences them. Ill be removing my son like 100+ other parents did this school year. I know that by looking at the enrollment. Hopefully for the parents remaining it gets better. And thePTA is a joke it went from horrible to well just as horrible witht he new officers. Goodluck to all the new parent s coming in.

I was so bothered by some of these comments with my child entering his new school that I stuck around the first few weeks like crazy. I'm extremely glad I did and feel so comfortable with my son being a student here! We moved from Aurora- and this school has amazing scores! I loved my son's previous school but this is on point! We're within a competitive society and it is imperative our children have the opportunity to be ahead of the game. We finally found what was right for our son! Truly blessed to come across such an amazing school! They helped us keep him in full day Kindergarten; Mr.Nestorick, the principal blessed us with a scholarship! Kindhearted, generous man. His new teacher (Mrs.Feister) is so amazing; I watch her previous students line up everyday for the current students to be dismissed for them to be able to hug her! Out there daily, never witnessed bullying or anything as such listed below and ecstatic to have moved to beautiful Morrison, Colorado and for us to be part of the Kendallvue community.

The school and teachers are good, but the principal is dodgy to parents when it comes to concerns about their kids. He also seems pretty nervous, at times shaking, and muffling his words. My first impression of him was how did he become a principal? All in all the school teachers are the reason I rated the school a little higher, they are very nice and very cooperative.

This school has a bullying policy on paper but do not seem interested in protecting children from bullying. My daughter has been a victim of it all year and principal does what it takes to make parents go away but does not really address bullying. Your child who is the victim is made to feel at fault.

I would not recommend this school to anyone. I guess since 2004 the bullies still roam the halls. My child was new and has not felt welcomed at all. The principal is of no help and actually does not appear to know how to run a school. Promises are made concerning counseling and are not kept and it feels as if they are just going through the motions to keep parents quiet. This is the worst school my children have gone to and I have removed them from the school.

We love this school. The teachers have given my children the best guidance we could have hoped for. The office staff is not only friendly and welcoming, but professional and cognizant of special situations. We appreciate our principal for all the long hours of work she puts in as well as her concern for our kids' safety. For anyone to think that the staff is unwelcoming is ridiculous. It is unfortunate for that person, for they must exude a negative attitude and demeanor to feel unwelcome at Kendallvue. Maybe things will improve for them.

Both my daughter and youngest son have been with this schoole since kindergarden. They are excellent in every catagory you can think of for a school. The teachers are wonderful and support one another. The principal is a strong leader and is attentive to the parents when called upon. A few years ago they were awarded a national education blue ribbon award from the department of education. The school's programs and internal structure is now used as an example for other schoools across the country. I feel this school is a shining example of the possiblities our educational system can achieve.

I would not recommend this school the general feeling is unwelcoming. The office is rude and the principal seems not to care about it, they discourage parent involvement- you are not really allowed in the building at all. No community events, and some very strict policies.I have had issues with the school not contacting me when they should have regarding my child's health. I cannot say strongly enough that I would avoid this school. There are plenty of other Jeffco schools that do a much much better job.

This school is definately a challenge for both of my sons. We came from California where they were both bored, and ahead of their class. Here, they are learning new things, and are excited to be stimulated. Unfortuneately, this school, and probably others, are haunted by bullies.

This school is great!! My daughter has a learning disability and the school was on top of it from the beginning.My daughter is now an A-B student. The staff are imformative and prompt. This school does not tolerate bullying. There is alot of parents that participate in school activities.The teachers and staff remember who you are at all times. Even if you hardly ever go into the school. This school takes pride in its students and always encourages its students to be the best they can be. My daughter was not supposed to go to this school but I picked it because of all the great things they have to offer to the students. This is a Blue Ribbon school. Only a couple of schools in Colorado were picked for this award. I believe you will be happy with this school!!.
