AMAZING SCHOOL!!!! I have both my kids enrolled at Kendall Christian School. My daughter is currently in K3 and my son in elementary. We enrolled our kids several years back and the positive changes that we have seen have been excellent. The Headmaster was brought in last year and the changes have been only positive. They also hired a new preschool director that is very approachable and always available to help me when I need help. The teachers that my kids have been blessed with have been excellent Godly teachers. A few years ago we had once thought about moving our oldest son to another school for elementary with the thought that the curriculum was not challenging. We are so happy we didn't. He is definitely being challenged. The administration has brought in new curriculum and so many great programs to the school. I am very proud to see administration take action and be strict with certain unruly parents and students who think they can scream at teachers and disrespect school employees as they were able to do in the past. We are blessed to have our kids in such an excellent christian school. My husband and I plan to see our kids graduate from KCS.

KCS is a great school. I have had my child there for 4 years now and I could not be more proud of all the changes. My son is now in 3rd grade and doing great. The school has really improved and I highly recommend it.

My children attended this school for two years. During this time the staff was completely switched from the head master to the secretary. After that point this school became just a money making operation totally void of respect for parents and students. If you had a issue with the teachers the "head master" would chastise you for being a concerned parent. I immediately withdrew my children only to find that they were lacking academically to public school when they received honor roll previously. I would not recommend this school and would warn other parents to reconsider if they chose this school.

My three children go to Kendall Christian school and I couldn't be happier with the education they are getting from truly Christian teachers who care not only about their education, but about their spiritual well being. The teachers and staff are like an extended family. They want to work with the parents to provide the best education and foundation for their children. This is a hidden gem - and we are blessed to have found it!

I am a former student of KCS and now have my children enrolled in the school. It was an excellent school when I attended and continues to be an excellent school. KCS celebrates 40 years of excellence in 2013.

Our daughters went to Kendall Christian. We were thrilled with the experience they had there academically and socially, and especially spiritually. The faculty and staff are loving and encouraging, and set wonderful examples of Christ-like living for our girls. They each went on to IB programs at different schools and were well prepared when they got there. We recommend KCS to any parent who wants an excellent Christian education for his/her child.

Our son attended Kendall Christian School from 1st through 5th grade and we were very impressed with the solid academic program offered there. The staff and teachers were wonderful, caring, Christian people who had a genuine concern for our son's growth. In addition to the academics, they offered sports, music, and various after school activities. We were very happy with our experience and felt our son was firmly prepared for middle school when he graduated there.

Kendall Christian School has been a blessing in our family's life for the past 9 years. We have watched our sons grow from tiny little preschoolers, hungry for academic knowledge and for the Word, into confident Christian young men who are excelling academically and who love the Lord. Our oldest is a middle schooler at Florida Christian, taking all honors classes, and excelling in his musical pursuits. Our youngest is a 5th grader at KCS who consistently blows us away with his standardized test scores. We owe such a debt of gratitude to KCS. Throughout the years, they have consistently loved, nurtured and taught our children. They have actively partnered with us in raising our sons, and we could not ask for more. We will forever be grateful to KCS, and we will always be a part of the KCS family.

This school is behind most public schools in math, Spanish and Language Art. Some staff members; the principal are not very friendly/warm and lack communication skills. No leadership what so ever. Most of the teachers are good and care about their students; however, academically this school is not worth the tuition price. I would not recommend this school.

Kendall Christian School has truly been a blessing to our family. We have watched the teachers and staff go above and beyond the call of duty on a daily basis and we have watched our son grow into a creative, inquisitive little boy with unwavering faith. As his parents, we definitely take some of the credit for the formation of his character. But it is undeniable that the loving atmosphere at this school is an extension of our family and has helped us instill the right values in our son. At meals, he always takes the lead and says grace. He asks to hear stories from his Children s Bible at bedtime. This past Christmas, he happily shared the story of Jesus birth with anyone who would listen and sang Christmas carols round the clock. His faith has actually helped renew our own and we owe a huge debt of gratitude to the Kendall Christian family for this precious gift. The faculty and school leadership are excellent, the school community is wonderful and the academic program is far superior to what is being taught in the public schools.

We love Kendall Christian School; the entire staff and especially the teachers! Our childrens' classmates and their families have become our family. We feel a very special bond with our Kendall Christian Community. The quality of education, nuturing, morals and values given our children are everything we wish for our boys. We are blessed to have our children in an environment rich with Love and God's teachings.

Truly a kid's Christian second home !! If you ever imagined having a school environment resembling a big family, KCS is the place. The teachers are big brothers and sisters. The academic program is top-notch. The arts and music are part of everyday life. Parents are very involved, as the school encourages our participation, morning coffee, monthly award ceremonies, chapel, school plays. Now, in middle school, our kids are Honor students with solid values and morals. We miss it. Kids grow-up so fast. This was the biggest blessing we never expected. Pray and follow your heart. I hope it leads you and your family to KCS.

A hidden Paradise par excellence! That s what I think to my self when I walk that peaceful KCS campus and hear students laughter at drop off or pick up. My daughter (14) graduated from KCS and is now attending Florida Christian School excelling in academics, sports, and drama. Her classmates are attending Palmer Trinity, Westminster, and other high schools succeeding at all levels. My younger daughter (10) is still enjoying Paradise and will graduate this school year.

My daughter has attended Kendall Christian for four years and we absolutely love the school. It is an incredible experience for children, with a beautiful Christian environment and the teachers are unlike any other. My daughter comes home from school singing Christian songs and prays before she goes to sleep every night. The classes are small so she gets a lot of individual attention. The parents are so friendly and my daughter has made a lot of wonderful friends. I recommend this school to any family who would like to see their child grow in a happy, healthy, Christian environment. This was the best decision I could have ever made for her.

Our two daughters attended KCS, our younger having just graduated this May. I can't say enough good things about the quality of the education they received. Our older daughter now attends another very high caliber private school, and has made straight A's the entire time. Our younger daughter was accepted into the IB program at a different school. KCS prepared them extremely well. Even more, they received a Christ-centered education from teachers who not only taught them well, but modeled Christian grace and love for them. This is a terrific school. I recommend it to anyone who genuinely cares about his / her child's academic, physical, moral and spiritual life foundation.

Terrible experience! Unfortunately, the school is so small that one or two bad teachers can severely hinder a childs academic experience. The school seems very slow to respond to parental concerns with communication between administration and parents seemingly kept to a minimum. Most of the teachers are very good and care about their students, however, academically this school is not worth the price of tuition. I would choose public over this private school.

KCS is a wonderful school with excellent teachers who teach with patience and love. It is a ministry of Kendall Presbryterian Church on Killian Drive. The curriculum is superior and the fact that the classes are small enables each child to receive individual attention. The computer lab is up to date and each child has their own computer for the classes. The Library rivals some public school libraries and the children are encouraged to use the facility. My child absolutely loves his school. It is the best kept secret in South Dade.

KCS is definitely the best kept secret in South Florida. If you are looking for a place to send your child whichis loving, caring, and fun where they will learn a lot and make lots of friends than this is your school! My son had a terrible experience in the public schools where he was 'just a number.' KFC is like a small town. Parents are highly involved, there are lots of exciting events happending all the time to make learning fun: trips, guest speakers, family carnivals, picnics, dances, etc, etc. I cannot say enough about this school. The best part is that it is so good for their spititual relationship with God. I always attend weekly chapels on Thursday mornings. It is truly a blessing to see God at work in the lives of these students.

My child will be entering Pre K 3 in the Fall and I am thrilled! A couple of months ago, the teacher's hosted a 'grade time travel' where students and parents were able to have a sneak peek at next year's classroom. Needless to say, the Pre K 3 time travel was a wonderful experience. The teacher kept the children engaged and alert the whole time. She read stories, sang a song and even did an art project with them (not an easy task when you have students and parents in the room). As a parent, I also love that the children are taught to have love for Christ, and for others--values that are certainly not part of some schools today. The events at Kendall Christian are great. They have parent social dinners, picnics, harvest 'pumpkin patch' parties, etc... Wonderful school! Miami's Best Kept Secret!

My last child will be leaving Kendall Christian this year and we're leaving with a very heavy heart. The school has been a blessing to our family and my children have blossomed spiritually and academically. The school offers a superlative spiritual foundation. The staff and administration is top notch and my child(ren) have loved learning and have suceeded academically while attending KCS. My oldest child is now in high school and has been a straight A student since leaving Kendall an obvious sign of the wonderful academic program at Kendall. We will miss KCS and would strongly recommend this school to anyone looking for a loving and nurturing environment for their child.

The reason we chose KCS for our two children was for spiritual and academic reasons. The school's Christian education program is outstanding and the faculty/administration are very loving. Both of my children went on to honor programs at both the middle school and high school level after leaving KCS.

I had two children attend the school. My eldest attended from pk 3 to 5th grade and the youngest until 1st grade. The only reason the youngest left was because our eldesty graduated. I cannot speak highly enough about the administation, staff and other families at this school. Teh eduacation is top notch in a loving christian envoronment. When we did have issues we worked them out with the administation in a mutually agreeable way. The faculty and staff feel that they are serving the parents in assisting to educate and nurture our kids in a christian environment.

This is one of the best Christian schools in Miami. The administration s wonderful and the teachers are top-notch. Excellent curriculum and the staff is very loving and nurturing. My child has been here since PK-3 and has flourished. If you're looking for a Christ-centered school with an excellent academic program, KCS can't be beat.

My daughter stared Prek-3 at KCS and this year will be her second year. I think that the academic quality is good. I was very impressed in seeing how much my daughter has learned and the knew skills she acquired from the beginning to the end of the program. I think it prepared the students very well for the higher grades. My daughter is too young to have her involved in extracurrical activities but I know that they do offer after school activities. Thorugh out the year they hold a lot of different activities that do involve parents participation. There are also activities where parents get together so besides promoting parents involvement in a way it encourages parents to get to know one another. Overall is a good school but the only disadavantage that I see that is a small school lacking the diversity that a bigger school can offer.

My children have been attending KCS for over 7 years. Every teacher they have had will be remembered as kind and loving with a passion for teaching. The families we have met have made such a difference in our lives. We will leave the school with many lifelong friends. The principal is top notch and in one year has made such a difference in the school. I am pleased with the curriculum used here which emphasizes hands-on activities and projects. This developmental approach is utilized all the way through fifth grade in various subjects. KCS' overall approach to learning has been stimulating and exciting and as a result my children have excelled both intellectually and developmentally. Of course, their SAT/IOWA scores have always been very good every year. I am confident when they finally leave KCS they will be prepared to go onto any school and do very well.

Our decision to send our children to KCS went beyond its excellent reputation for preparing students for middle and high school. KCS was one of about 5 (private) schools that matched our academic requirements. What made KCS different was the school's culture of caring and nurturing the students in a Christian environment. We definitely sensed that there was something different about KCS. KCS has molded our children - not only as outstanding students, but more importantly (to us) as Christians. If you want more information about the school, their web site is www.kendallchristian.com. Better still, take time to stop by and tour the campus. You can't help but notice the difference.

The teachers are very good and very caring. 'This is an excellent institution'
