This school is a little gem. The teachers are amazing and knowledgable. They make learning fun. The administration and office staff are attentive to the children's needs, and respectful to me. My children have been at this school for 4 years now and we have not had a problem. The community of parents is also very nice with many activities and parental involvement. Great communication also between parents and teachers. So blessed and proud to be able to send my sons to Kendale elementary.

HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE!! The first grade it was a nightmare.. Tried different strategies but there are all kind of problems, from bullying until generalization over the student’s needs. Workers are not prepared to deal with people at all... The administration are extremely rude and definitely not educated at all.. Simply they lack of manners. I regret that I wait until the end of the year to change school...

I hadto pull my son out of this school. I used to love it. The Pre-K program is fantasic. However, once my son started Kindergarten everything changed. My son is a sweet child who loves to please, but his success has been thwarted at every turn by teachers and administration who have an "I can't" attitude. The assistant principal is very nice. However, she is not on your side. You can walk in with documentation, test results, independent evaluations, but if they can do less for you, they always will. If they think they can get more from you, they'll try. They know every child by name, but they don't put any thought into who they place in each class. They show very poor planning skills. Every year, my son's class has been split. In the first 3 months of 2nd grade, he had 5 different teachers. Autistic children need stability, and he definitely wasn't getting any, or an education. The final straw came when my son came home with bloody scratches. All the children knew what happened, but none of the teachers had a clue. His psychologist recommended I pull him from the school immediately, so I did. He's doing much better, but homeschool should never have been an option.

I'm giving the school three stars because of the office staff Raquel is excellent she treats the parents with respect and is very nice. The social worker for the school is horrible, needs to work on her communication skills with parents. Also if you need childcare for your kids try not to use the after school care I don't recommend it You won't be happy. Most of the teacher's are excellent it's because of them that I gave the school three stars they deserve five, but the school doesn't.

My son has been going to this school since kinder. It's a small school where everyone including the admin staff knows your child's name as well as yours. Love the school. Son had done really well.

My son has attended this school since first grade and my daughter since kindergarten. My son is about to graduate and I can say that I have only positive things to say about the teachers, the new principal, Mr. Hall and the office staff. Both of my kids are in the gifted program and these are some of the best, most caring teachers I have known. I am a very involved parent and have always received feedback from them and my children have been engaged learners. I highly, highly recommend this school to everyone.

It's simple really, Kendale produces the most intelligent minds in the Miami area, the school is an A school for the last 10 years, blue ribon, five star... etc..., it is hcurriculumn is hard, but kids learn and havea great experience, they have dreams and this is like a stepping stone to a beter life to reaching those dreams.

My son did start this year for the fisrt time on this school 2 nd Grade and he does love it, great teachers, the facilities are big and clean, the teacher gave him a lot of homework but I do prefer this than not homework, additionally the school offers extra classes called PTA which are wonderfull because the kids can choose what topic or sport do they want to practice after school hours. The do have also fair books and a lot of activies for the kids. Love the school not complaint at all.

Most of the teachers in this school are mean and rude. This school has a very cold and unfriendly environment. As a parent, I am not happy with the teachers (who are not helpful), the office staff is not pleasant, and the administration is never to be seen. I'm putting my child in a charter school this year.

At the begining I was not too comfortable with the school... but as time went by I noticed how interested my 9 year old became towards education... The teachers are very attentive and keep parents informed. I made the right decision moving them to Kendale Elementary! :0)

Not sure what to compare this school with? If I compare it to the worst school then its a great school but if I compare it to the best then there is a lot to be desired. Very little creativity and innovation. Wastes time with silly stuff and then teachers say they don't have time to go outside the box. Leadership lacks passion, motivation, and making learning fun.

As a parent of a 1st grader, I am happy with the overall education my daughter is receiving. I feel the teachers are in tune with each student s progress in the class. The on-line home learning programs such as river deep and www.learning.com are both fun and educational. I do feel that the school is lacking on the availability of program such as art, music and physical education. This is a vital component of a child s overall well being. All in all, the school is great! - Yolanda Morsy

Kendale Lakes is the greatest school ever! I'm not a parent, but I am a former student that moved. I was really upset when we moved for one main reason: Kendale Lakes was simply too great to give up. The principal is awesome, and at Kendale Lakes I had tons of friends, including the teachers. I don't know who my favorite teacher is because they were all great, and, the gifted program was so good. Now that we moved and I go to a school in Atlanta, GA, my mom and I realized how good this school is. If you were to compare this school to another one in Georgia, Kendale Lakes Elemenaty is 500% better.

When my son start in 4th grade at this school he didn't know a word in English and all the teachers worked hard to help him and right now he is at middle school and speak and write very very good. Sports are not a strong subject at this school. Something very positive that this school have is the number of students is not too high, so they can offer personalize attention to each student. This is a great school.

I am so impresed with this school. The parent/teacher/principal communication is excellent. I love the e-mail system they employ to stay in touch with the parents. Also, the Riverdeep program is an excellent learning tool.

I think that this school needs to increase it's learning power and that the teacher's should play a more important part in a child's daily progress and academic development. There should definitely be more extra curricular activities. Parents should have more access to their children's progress and suggestions for educational edification should be considered.
