Kemp Primary is a unique school. This school believes that each child has something positive to offer society. The teachers use a hands on learning approach. They believe if the students touch, taste, feel, or actively participate in a lesson that the lesson will stick. KPS is a family oriented environment. Parents tend to be the key to enhance student learning. I quite enjoy the various clubs and organizations KK through second grade students are allowed to participate in at such a young age. The school has won various awards and accomodations for academic, social, and community activities. Kemp Primary School is a model school. Come check us out!

Kemp Primary is a great place for students to learn and grow! A very safe and nurturing environment is provided so that every child has an opportunity to get what they need to succeed. On top of a world-class curriculum, there are also many clubs, activities, and opportunities that fit the needs of all students. Not only do the students learn a lot, but they also have fun while doing it.

Kemp Primary School, in Hampton, Georgia could be better if the teachers there there will do a much better do teaching. Instead, they claim that it is a good school, but move their children to a much better school like Arnold Elementary.

This school is one of the best. The staff not only works as a team but ever one considers our coworkers family. We put the students first. We offer many opportunities for our students to experience many different activities through the clubs we offer. We find the resources needed to enable our students to achieve their dreams. Each child is treated equal and each child is loved. We encourage our students to reach for the stars.

My school is the greatest. We have the best administrators ever! Our teachers and staff are loving, nurturing, and always put the students first. We make our parents feel just as special as their children. There are so many opportunities for our students to shine and portray their talents. Mentoring clubs are in place for both boys and girls. At Kemp Primary, we have a passion for making sure our students are learning and are happy while they are learning!

I have three children to come thru Kemp and I love it. The principle and assistant principle are visible. The teachers care about their students and the parents. The homework is challenging, but is necessary. Parent involvement is surprisingly good. Communication to the parents is great. I appreciate the caring environment from leadership, especially since the children are very young. I love the assignment duties the children are given like water fountain monitoring! Some improvements are needed, but what couldn't use improvements? Kemp Primary rocks!

I have recieved 2 students in my class (Fulton County) from this school who cannot read!! It is so frustrating, I teach second grade!! No records that indicate low achievement, nada! I just had to go online to see if I could find out something. If these poor students are any indication of what is going on run from this school.

This site is badly in need of updating phone & fax numbers! Evidently, you must call this school and listen to a recorded message to obtain their fax number!

My children attends Kemp Primary for the second year now and I have to say that it has been a pretty good experience thus far. They have had really good teachers who seem to enjoy what they do! They assign homework that is challenging but not too overwhelming. They encourage the children to excel academically and socially. They welcome parent envolvement in all areas. They offer a program for children who are gifted and those who have gifted potential (called High Potential-HP).

Kemp's teachers work hard to teach the children academic and citizenship skills. The principal is service-oriented and puts the students first. If you have a problem, start with the teacher, and you will find a workable solution.

This appears to be more of an alternative school. The children have not consequences for bad behavior.

I find the teachers appear to be overwhelmed and do not show love towards the children. It seems like it's just a job. Teachers are trying to meet their minimum requirements on paper, but not truly concerned with the well being of their students.

Wish we had another option. We are so dissatisfied were are looking into home schooling. There is no love for the children in this school. The assistant principle likes to turn a blind eye. You have to cut through a lot of red tape to get to either one...The principle or the asst principle. It's a shame.

My child started Kemp Primary for the first time this year. It was not my choice for her to attend Kemp primary but because of where we live this was the only choice. Registration was disorganized words was being exchanged back and forth between school counselor and one particular teacher which to me in my opinion was unprofessional. It is a lot of little things that I have notice in the last 3 months that has been a true concern for me. One being parent involvement. A school is as only as strong as the parents/teachers are and this is missing at Kemp Primary School.

Perfect setting for young minds to grow without a lot of distractions. The primary concept should be more wide spread. You see a real community of learning. Kemp Primary School is the best.

Primary is a great concept! All of the students have the heart to do the right thing. We need more k-2 schools.

My son had quite the experience this past year in the first grade. His teacher was new. (a first year instructor) and hadn't quite found her niche with working with such a large group of children. So much so that more students than not had behavior problems in her class. Instead of complain, I began to volunteer and help out in other ways when needed. The transformation was great. I learned alot from this experience...It just goes to show that before we complain about a situation as parents, we should first try getting involved. All of us have that responsibility. Needless to say, I was happy with his progress and the progress of this teacher as they year progressed. Kemp Primary is a wonderful school. Get involved!

I am very pleased with the school and especially the teacher that my daughter has. They have already taught her so much and I can see her improving everyday. She has learned more already this year than she did at pre-k and I would highly recommend this school to anyone looking for a great school for their child. My daughter has greatly enjoyed the extracurricular activities like art, music, and PE. They have taught her things like music composers. Parent involvement is great. I receive a paper home everyday about my childs behavior and the homework is included. If I have a question for the teacher and I send a note I always receive an answer the same day. I am very happy with this school and the staff.
