If you are a parent lucky enough to have a great teacher, you'll probably be satisfied, but don't expect great things. This school is nothing more than average among Cobb County schools. No gifted program and no accountability on individual student learning plans. Physical condition of the buildings is not great, few extra curricular activities and lack of communication are big negatives. Parents are definitely involved, which includes sending their kids to Sylvan and Kumon for the basics their kids are not learning in the classroom! Smaller overall school population and uniforms are nice, but can't make up for the curriculum deficiencies as well as the declining test scores. A great idea in concept, but seriously lacking in execution.
I am very pleased with the quality of programs Kennesaw Charter School offers our children. I admire the staff, teacher and parent commitment to their education. My daughter is doing excellent!!!
I am very dissatisfied with the leaders of this school. The principal, and the board is very hard to communicate with as it relates to issues that affect the growth of the school in a positive manner. I have seen a decrease in the morale of the teachers and lack of direction. When one enters the Kennesaw Charter School, you will immediately notice the poor and unclean condition of the school.
The new PreK program is fabulous! The PreK students take part in PE, art, music, Spanish, and media. My son loves going to school. KCS is a wonderful school. All students are challenged and are taught at their ability level. The staff always looks like they're having a good time. It's a family environment!!!!
I am so impressed with this school My 2nd grader is doing things that she wouldn't normally see until 4th grade! This was the best choice and the staff is so supporting and the teachers.....THEY ARE GREAT! I always recommend this school to everyone that will hear!
I love this school. They have a new art, music and spanish program. Being A chrter school they demand a lot of the parents, which is good, you really get to know the school and all the teachers. A great place!
Love parent involvement, creative lesson plans, creative projects ideas, wish they had school buses to transport children, wish they had more fieldtrips, 3rd grader has vocabulary words like thermal energy,new teachers and leader a plus, one of the best schools yet. Hope they have JHS and HS in the years to come. My child loves to go to school and hates to miss a day.
Required volunteer hours makes sure of parent involvement.My kindgergartner has a dedicated teacher.New principal very involved with staff, teachers and students.Scores are increasing,excellent job for a school just 3-4 years old. Having to wear a uniform is wonderful. Wish there were more challenging activities for the 'above average' Kindergarten students and school received more funds to develop the infrastructure and facility.
Very motivated teachers, required volunteer hours and passionate staff make this a great choice in Cobb County. Test scores are increasing, and the teachers really want your child to learn. Minimal extracurriculars available, and location are a few negatives, but overall enthusiasm makes up for them.
