I am so glad my son was able to complete elementary school at Kimberly. The teachers seem to know every child's name. I like the friendly atmosphere at the school. Hopefully, APS will decide to provide much needed renovations to the school. The teachers provide meaningful activities to make the learning lasting and memorable. Don't underestimate the power of an excellent public school!

I have been employed at Kimberly for a short while now, but it has been an amazing experience! The staff is like a family. Everyone is willing to go above and beyond to help others. The student teacher relationship is great as well. I've seen many teacher's besides myself who are truly passionate about working with the students of Kimberly and it shows. I'm proud to be a Kimberly Stinger.

My school is awesome. The teachers here are dedicated to student success and go to great legnths to ensure all students are learning. We are a standards based school and seek common core activities that are hands-on and engaging, yet vigorating.

I have been an employee of Kimberly Elementary School for a little a year now. I have found the staff to be very welcoming to newcomers. They really care about the students and work hard at creating positive relationships with their parents. I am proud to be a Kimberly Stinger!

I am the mother of two children that are new to Kimberly Elementary for the 2013-14 school year. Both of my children went to a private pre-k and then to a non traditional charter school...so they have never been a part of the public school system. My husband and I were really nervous about the transition, but so far things have been really good. The teachers are really friendly and there are always fun activities and events going on that are open to parent involvement. Another plus is the affordable after school care in which my daughter is able to participate in hip hop dance classes. The only problem, which is not really a problems but more of something that I am not used to, is the one phone number to contact every teacher in the school, I guess I'm just use to having more direct ability to contact my kids teachers. Ms. Willis, Dr. Douglas, and Mrs. Carter in the after school program have been great and we look forward to getting to know many of the other staff.

Kimberly is a great school for our community. We provide a PreK classroom, Spanish classes, orchestra. Ben Carson Reading program for our, and a parent reource room for parents. We are planning to have a English class for parent and a literacy class along with it. We will have a Plaza Comunitaria to help Spanish speaking parent get their GED, ETC. The best of all is that we have a great staff. Teachers are awesome! The Principal and the Assistant Principal are great with staff, parents and students. Our goal is to increase parent involvement with many ideas we have in place. We are hoping a great improvement on this matter.

I am a neighborhood resident and have had three children at Kimberly, I have volunteered in each of my children's classes and have worked as a reading tutor for the entire school. I think that Kimberly is a good school with wonderful teachers-Ms. Rivers 1st Grade, Ms. Saunders-3rd Grade, and Ms. Irving of course Ms. Hall, the principal. I think this school is what you make it. I think it is a diamond. There are challenges but with additional parent participation, it can get better.

I have two children at Kimberly. The school has some excellent teachers, but could improve on programs and activities. Mrs. Irvin and Mrs. Rivers are excellent and caring teacher.

I have three children that have and attend LO Kimberly and I am overall satisfied with the instructors and administrators at this school. I have had the privilege to work with outstanding instructors at the Pre-School, Kindergarden, 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 5th grade. I do believe that this school does need more assistant from parents to make this program work. This school is also losing their high calibre instructors. This school's best instructors are Mrs. Rivers and Ms. Irving. Submitted by a parent

I have not been pleased with L.O.Kimberly Elementary academic programs or the principal. I've tried to volunteer in my daughter's classroom but was told I could not because it would be disruptive. I do not like the fact that I cannot observe my child and her teacher when there is a problem.

My oldest daughter has been attending Kimberly since the 2004-05 school year, and I must say that I am very pleased with the caliber of instructors at the school. For kindergarten, she had Ms. K. Natson (now teaching 3rd grade)who was a wonderful teacher that taught more than primary colors and shapes! The children acquired a broader vocabulary, learned to form sentences and count money. The students also composed mini-book reports and learned about cultures around the world. In 1st grade, Ms. K. Loyd helped me enhance her already good reading, writing and math skills! And, she made all A's the entire school year! This year, she has Ms. K. Knowles, who earns her right to be called a wonderful teacher! On the first day, she gave all parents her home & cell #, and both school and personal email addresses. She also gives weekly updates on the children's progress.
