Map of Kilpatrick Elementary School address.

Kilpatrick Elementary is a good example of the lack luster public shcools in the Clayton county area. All three of my children attended 2 years ago and I was very unimpressed and most of all saddened by the quality of education they received. The teacher mentioned in the review below (who is supposedly one of the most "creative" people) had poor classroom organizational skills, she was a horrible communicator and very unwilling to go above and beyond to help students. The teachers in general seem to do just enough to get by, and they definitely don't inspire the children. They also don't allow the children to go out to recess regularly which for me was unbelievable. Overall poor classroom management skills and poor teaching. I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone hoping for their child to gain a quality education. The one breath of fresh air this school has to offer is Mrs. Lumbard. She is a great liaison and mediator for the children and parents when faced with difficulties with incompetent staff.

Our 20 year old daughter attended Kilpatrick for a year and our 10 year old son has attended since first grade. He is in the Score program and is an AB Honor Student. Somebody is doing their job. Keep up the good work Kilpatrick

As we near yet another end of a spectacular school year i cant help but to recognize all of the hard work and extra attention given to my daughters personally. Some of the teachers there are excellent at putting the children needs first above all. I would love to once again give high praises to mrs. Duck ( who runs that front desk with such knowledge), mrs. Lombard (super intelligent and great mediator), mrs. Nipper ( the most creative person in the world) and last but, by no means last mrs. Stuart ( her energy, structure, and ability to teach and relate). Big ups to dr. Vinings for putting together a super team. Other mentions, mrs. Thomaston, mrs. Plante, mrs. Nall, mrs. Jenkins, mr. Strickland and a host of others. Keep up the good work i appreciate you.

Dr. Vining is far from an excellent principal. My child has attended Kilpatrick for 3 years (K-2). I KNOW the teachers are wonderful at Kilpatrick, but I am far from impressed with her leadership.
