Excellent, high-quality education school. An amazing 1st year and now I can't expect more! It is running super in every aspect! I'm a proud cougar mom!
My daughter loves KCC. Being her first ever school experience since Dec. 2012, it is a great fit for her and for me. The individualized curriculum keeps her ahead of her grade level. I enjoy the parent involvement and the fact that we help make the school so great because of our involvement. KCC is a nonprofit charter school that is dependent on family involvement. My daughter loves knowing I am making a difference in her life as I did when she was homeschooled.
Kid's Community College Charter provides high quality education for our future doctor, lawyers, engineers, teachers, etc.. The school make sure that every child feels important and that they get all the learning educational tools to succeed. It very important that you nature the mind while it is young and capture the interest of that child so that they can excel. KCC Orange is a school that cares about your child well-being.
We started at this school last January and absolutely love it. The teachers and staff are so invested in the children's learning it is wonderful. The staff is always friendly and welcoming and makes me as a parent feel safe in leaving my child in their care. Everyday when I pick my daughter up she is smiling and eager to tell me all about what she learned and did during the day. I cannot say enough good things about Kids Community College Charter School. I would highly recommend it to anyone that is looking for a better approach to learning for their child. So lucky to have found you.
Kcc is an excellant school. My children love going to this school. The education that they have been taught is exceptional. I highly reccommend this school.
I love this school. The classroom sizes are small and the teachers are very engaged with each student. My kids are getting a very good education and school experience.
Charter schools are about school choice. We moved to the Orlando area last year and our son has only attended charter schools his entire life. Compared to others I've had, the previous administrator was just ok in my opinion. I never felt as if she was fully vested in my child's success or well-being since many times she made commitments that were not kept and always seemed to blame others for areas we were dissatisfied with. My son did well this year, but I know he can do better. We believe in this school and its mission and hopefully the new admin can fully deliver on it. We are returning next year and plan to be here a long time. Charter schools are about working together, not about some of the clicky gossipy nonsense that happens with a few at this school - most of whom loved the previous administrator because she allowed them to get far to involved in my opinion. I'm glad that's just a few people though. My experience is that if you're not happy with the school or how it's run, you can work to change it or leave. Don't get in the way and keep it about the children.
My child also attended KCC this year and I was also upset with the way that the board of directors handled certain decisions regarding dismissing some admistrative staff. This happened very close to the end of the year, and before all of that happened, I had been very happy with the way the director (who is no longer there now) ran the school. She was wonderful. I was also very happy with my child's teacher, who was also amazing. Some of the teachers are leaving this year (and I can't blame them, it must not seem like the best environment to work in)And the board of directors will be announcing the new director for next year in the next few days. And yes, we will be returning next year - BUT with our guards up, and we have every right to do that.
I'm an extremely involved CPA parent at KCC and am surprised by the inaccurate information below. When I heard the announcements I decided to go admin rather than speculate. Execs from the Board have been readily available and were happy to meet with me and others regarding the resignations, transition plan, future and concerns we had with the previous director. They explained everything, met with us for as long as needed and addressed our concerns. We are more than satisfied with what was done and how it was handled. These were not a "main branch" decisions. Our local board of directors, which is governed by parents and reps from our school and 1 member from Hillsborough, made the decisions and I agree with them COMPLETELY. I support this change and encourage others to seek facts and post inaccurate info. KCC is a great school and will get better with the RIGHT leadership. I'm excited about next year! It's about choice! Anyone who isn't going to be part of improving should go elsewhere not stick around with their guards up. Leave and give your spot to parents who want a high quality education for their child. There's a long waiting list for this awesome school!
I'm so happy that I decided to send my daughter to KCC. The school feels like a small community. Her class size is small and her teacher tailors her work to her academic level. Her teacher is amazing, as are all of the staff. I'm so pleased and comfortable with everyone. I've never been so excited about her schooling. It's wonderful to have such a great option available when you can't afford private school. I feel as if she's getting the best possible education here.
We are so pleased with KCC. For us the concern for our kindergardener was individualized curriculum. With all of the testing that KCC does on and for the children, the parents and the teachers both know where the kids are and can cater to the individual needs of each child with challenging academics. The teachers instruct with loving, firm hands. There are extra curricular options for the children including foreign lang, dance and girl scouts. Her teacher communicates with us daily. The principal qenuinely cares about the wellbeing of the students and their families.
I have been greatly impressed with the quality of teaching and care for the students, parents and faculty at KCC Orange County. My daughter attends tone of the KCC campuses in Riverview, FL and she is reading and performing math one and sometimes 2 grade l levels higher. She loves going to school. KCC had everything to do with her terrific start so when I learned that KCC was expanding to Orange County, I was excited and confident that the KCC foundation and reputation for excellence would prevail. Boy was I right! I have witnessed students and parent expressions of delight and satisfaction as they sing the praises of KCC and what it is doing for their child. Thanks for opening KCC up to Orange County!
I have never known a school so dedicated to the idea of family. They recognize the strength that comes from unity of parents, teachers, students and staff. The teachers work together at such a high level and are creative about helping students achieve success. Families are included in events to bond as a team and play a significant role in creating positive attitude at the school. It is a unique and impressive culture in which to be a part.
