I have two children that attend this school and I have nothing but great things to say. The teachers are patient and very open to suggestions. Any minor issues we had were addressed and resolved immediately. They have both learned so much in the time they have been there both academically and socially. My oldest son is in Pre K-4, so he will be going to elementary next year, but my three year old will be there until he can't stay anymore. I would highly recommend.

7/19/09 Both of my children have attended KACS in the past and both of my children have become extremely successful academically and spiritually because of this school. They both loved attending KACS where they were loved unconditionally each and every day that they attended school. My son is in both gifted and honors classes since the first grade and my daughter a sucessful adult out in the real world now. I give God and KACS all of the credit for their achievements ongoing in their life and I know without a doubt that it's all due to the Lord and the wonderful staff at this school. I have read all of the reviews thus far and for those that have spoken out so negatively about KACS, it was your choice to pull your children out of this wonderful school and also your loss as well. I will be praying for you.

My child has attended KACS for 7 years. I have been extremely pleased with every teacher she has had. She has excelled in every area of academics. Her SAT scores are well above her level, some even post high school. I am very sad to see some of the reviews. The staff is very friendly and you can see that they love each and every student. When I drop my child off they know her and me by name. They greet everyone, with a smile. I will be very sad when it is time for my daughter to move on to a new school.

The school has gone down hill over the past 2 years. I pulled my child out of the school. Good teachers leave, here is only 2 teachers left that are great with the students. With the exception of the receptionist, the staff is unfriendly and unprofessional. # years ago I was all for sending everyone to enroll their children at this school. After the last couple of years, I was embarrassed that I even made such recomendations.

Children are loved and well supervised at this school. We have never felt our daughter was missing out on anything in her education. She has excelled in all areas and her SAT scores have been above grade level. We love all of the staff at the school and feel blessed to be part of this school.

We decided to leave because of a very high teacher/staff turnover.

My child has far exceeded our expectations in reading, and other subjects with the terrific curriculum and teacher for kindergarten. She also knows bible stories inside and out and is a wonderful Christian. Love the curriculum. Love the class size!

The principal is unperfesional ( in her actions and her apperiance. The office help is not friendley. You do not feel welcome in the school. The school does not have a Christian envirment form the higher ups. The teachers are wonderful. It is a shme that such a good school had gone down hill. No matter how many times you meet with the school board nothing gets resolved. They act like they are listening but I feel they do not care. Parents are paying for specials which the school never bothered to hire any or refund our money for the specials we did not have. They need to get someone in the school who really cares and has experience working with people and management skills.

The teachers were unfriendly. The staff were unorganized. The work was too hard. Teachers kept everything secret about child's progress until it was too late.

Does not resolve parents concerns. When there is am issue with parents, teachers or principal, the board does nothing to remedy the situation.

KACS has been a blessing to my family. My daughter is a High School Senior and SHe attended KACS from 6th through 8th grade. KACS prepared her for the Honor Roll and AP classes she currently takes. I love it so much, that when my youngest child stared school I enrolled him too. He is starting 5th grade and has been there since 1st grade. They have embraced my children and loved them like family. Small class sizes give each child individual atention. My son feels safe, loved and most of all signicant at school. Larger schools can not offer that. What they lack in extra curricular activities, they make up for with exceptional teachers and loving caring office staff. Not only do they know the children by name, they know the parents by name and welcome their involment. I love this school!

Very Disappointing. Poor leadership. School board has cancelled the jr high division, and subsequently has greatly reduced their enrollment for next year, resulting in none of the teachers being on contract yet for next year. Shame, they were great teachers. Registration required an activity fee to be paid, only we paid cash for each of the oldest child's activity's, and the youngest used maybe 25% of her fee. Teachers are great, both kids are principals honor roll, shame about the administration.

My child had a very good year at this school. Some teachers need to watch how they talk to children though. This is a Christian school.

My child is attending KACS this year. We have been overall pleased this year. The class sizes are wonderful. Most of the teachers are in tune with your specific child. The problem with KACS for us is that 6-8 grades are combined.

They are one of the greatest schools around. Teachers get involved with our families and keep good communication about our kids. My daughter loves it and does not want to go anyhwere else. Everybody makes an effort to greet her by name daily and she loves that connection.

Kings Avenue is an excellent school with high academic and moral standards. The faculty is well qualified and caring. Each child is important to the school and they welcome parental involvement.

My children have been attending since starting 3 yr old preschool program. Currently they are 1st & 3d graders. Both scored extremely well on thier standardized tests. My 3rd grade son's lowest scored topic was 5.9 grade level. All others were middle school level. His reading comprenhensive was high school level. My 1st grade daughter scored all topics 2-4 grades above her grade level. It appears the Abeka learning/teaching process works well. KACS is a good faith based private school. Faith is one of the main reasons my children attend a private school but have total confidence the dedication of the teachers and small class sizes of 12-15 are the 2 main reasons why my children attend Kings Ave. Christian.
