Nice school, teachers and staff know all the children. Teachers are overall loving and dedicated. Parent involvement has been increasing. Children feel right at home.
Well rounded school that produces well rounded students ! Amazing gifted program that teaches the children with all sorts of hands on experiences using all sorts of styles of teaching. Wonderful and safe environment .
Our school has an AMAZING gifted program. They do incredible hands-on projects. Their ESE program is outstanding. They really work hard to help the child grow to be independent learners.
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.
High level of education. Teachers and staff really care about the students. I highly recommend this school.
Both of my children have attended this school and I think it is an excellent school. The administration, teachers and staff have a genuine interest in the academic success of students. My children have received a top quality education here. I would highly recommend this school.
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.
hi! I am a middle schooler now who went to kendale and i was in ms.homan's gifted and in mrs. brody's fifth grade gifted and this teacher prepared all her students for middle school. I highly reccomend for all the parents to take thir children to this school. I feel comfortable with my studying and working methods which were taught to me by these amazing teachers. I <3 Kendale elementary and now Glades Middle!!!
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)
Administration and faculty work together to create a fun and creative learning environment! Small school so the students are all well known. Children are well prepared for the next step and beyond.
Iam a parent of two kinder kids. My kids love the school. And I think the staff is great.
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.
Wonderful experience in this school since 2002!!!! My two daughters, in 5 th grade and 7 th grade now have the best education with excelent teachers and amazing office staff, the best school in Miami Dade!!! M. Canen
I have had a wonderful experience with this school. All 3 of my children have a great education with wonderful teachers who truly care. The staff is remarkable and it feels like an extended family.
I am a parent of two children at the school both were there since 1st grade. I am very lucky and proud to have found this school , top of the class. Is like a public private school number 1 in education and teacher deddication.
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.
