KCC is a really great place for learning and child development. A small environment offers a family-style atmosphere with excellent professional educational offerings.
I have a child that is currently enrolled in KCC MIddle and my experience has been a positive one. The academics are comparable to private school (we chose this school over private schools in the Brandon/Riverview area) with the added advantage that the teachers use multiple learning strategies to help every type of learner. Advanced classes such as Geometry are offered as well as interesting electives like Italian (taught by a native speaker) and CSI. I'm not sure what the other parent is talking about but my daughter has an EP AND is currently given FREE tutoring two times a week in math. This has occurred all year even though she is an honor student so technically doesn't NEED it but because of the EXCELLENT and CARING teachers they are happy to help her achieve her goal of straight A's if she is willing to show up. Athletics are enriching and positive ("Attitude over performance" is the motto) but also competitive. The administration is positive and supportive of the students. My daughter had a bullying problem and within HOURS an investigation was made and within 2 DAYS the situation was resolved. I would recommend this school to anyone who wants their child to succeed!
I have always felt Kid's Community College Middle (and elementary) are the place to be. I received proof of that this week. My child was selected to take the ACT college entrance exam as part of the Duke Tip program. I received notification that she scored in the top 5% of all students taking the test for her grade. All I can say is WOW! The professors and programs at KCC are top notch. If you are considering school choice, look no further!
Wonderful. I am not sure what the other parent is talking about below, but the faculty members I have met are proactive and helpful.
While there are one or two teachers that are the exception and seem to truly care overall unless the child is sailing through without a problem, they just don't care. They are concerned with fundraising, volunteer hours and test scores but not hleping a child that is in need. I started asking for help for my son in October. It is February and he still hasn't had his IEP. I can't put him in for a different school until I have th IEP. Before I enrolled him I told the school and provided assestment paperwork regarding his ADHD. I was told that they were there to help him, it would work out. At each of the parent teacher conferences a teacher has complained about his attention problems and his inability to advance in math. When I mention that he has ADHD they say they were unawarfe.. They are only willing to provide additional help in tutoring if I pay by the hour. This after I have already paid 1100 dollars in 'Donation" and provide over 14 hours of service. I would be truly surprised if he returns in the fall.
This is a great Middle School! There are very few choices for a Charter Middle School in Southern Hillsborough County and none can compare to KCC. I am so glad KCC is here! The children receive a great education in an environment supporting their personal needs. The sports and academic teams have flourished! I do not worry about my child being at a place with behavioral problems, truancy, or scholastic failures. The kids look happy and I see them talking to the teachers and smiling! The quality of KCC remains strong here.
I am going into 7th grade middle at KCC. I have been here since I was in kindergarten. Our school is AMAZING!!!! Our teachers and staff members are the best! I love the electives that they offer! If you are looking for a school, KCC is the one!
My daughter came to this school from a public elementary school making C's and D's and after her first year at KCC was making A's and B's. The education here is far superior to public schools and I don't worry about their safety. All the kids that attend KCC, their parents have a vested interest in their futures. I highly recommend KCC!
I have two children enrolled at KCC. Both have excelled academically. Can't say enough about passionate leadership of KCC overall and the dedicated teachers and staff! Great school!
KCC has made a world of difference in my children's education. I have two that have been coming here for the past two years and they have made leaps and bounds in their grades, motivation and self esteem. Neither of them are nervous when it comes time for them to test and I could not be more proud of their performance. The staff and school offer more than I could ever imagine.
This school has been a God sent for my family. The children are safe and treated with the respect they deserve. KCC puts the public schools in this area to shame. I am very happy to have my children attend this school.
This is a great school with amazing faculty. My daughter has received nothing but A s and B s on her report card. I know without this school she would have been lost in the shuffle of students in any other school. The other options of schools that I could have put my child into were not ok with me. I thank God for KCC I feel my child is safe at this school and has the best education possible. This is a school that cares about its students .
Both my daughters go to this school. After having tons of problems with Sheilds Middle school I put my girls in this school. Both of them are now straight A students. This school gives kids, parents and teachers all a voice. Something public schools need to learn again.
I am so happy my son was accepted to this school, he just finished his 8th grade year top of his class! we moved here to Riverview, FL the 2012013 school year and we did not plan on having our children in a public school. All my children attened the Private Florida State University High School, Kids Community College was a Heaven sent! My son handled did not handle the move well asnd KCC helped him get out of the shell and back into his activities. I recommend this school to Everyone!
My school has a great learning environment where I feel good about my child being there everyday! I am thankful for this nearby school choice!!
My school is the most reliable and satisfactory school I have ever attended with the highest standards any school can possibly have. It is outstanding in academics and electives. KCC is the best.
I am currently a professor here at Kid's Community College. Prior to me accepting the position here, I researched this school in great detail as a home for my son to start his academic journey. I believe totally in the vision of this school, and would recommend this school to any parent that is looking to provide thier children with the BEST academic foundation! The professor here truly care for the academic success of EVERY CHILD.
This school has worked one on one with my 1st grade son who has recently been diagnose with a learning disablity. His teacher has helped me as a mother and my son excell beyond what we imagined. My daughter is in the 5th grade who was so nervous taking FCATs . This is the first year she was not afraid of an y test. KCC staff and Teachers make her feel as if she is home and comfortable. I grade this school As A on emotionsl level and A as school performance
KCC Middle School is the very best. The Staff treats each student with the love and respect that these pre-teens/teens need. The students are individuals that know that they belong to a supportive school. The teachers are the best and expect the same for their students. My daughter loves coming to school each day and does her very best. What more could a parent want from their middle schooler? WE LOVE KCC-MS!!!!
My school is Kids Community College. They are an amazing school! My family and I are truly happy with this school! My daughter's grades have improved so much since she has been there! This is the first time that she has made straight A's!! Kids Community College is truly a blessing! I know that she is getting a great education there and is at a safe school!
