This is our first year at KCSMA and to say I'm pleased is an understatement. I am very impressed as a kindergarten parent by how well the classroom and extracurricular activities are managed. Go knights!
This is our fourth year and we have seen firsthand how the teachers of this charter school can do more with less resources and funding. Teachers, parents and principals work together for one thing - the student. And it doesn't matter what color they are, what religion they practice, or where they came from, all students are equal - none better or less because of parents' income.
We have never been disappointed. Our two oldest are in Middle School now, and they were so well prepared academically, their teachers say they can tell the KCSMA students right away.
My daughter has attended KCSMA since she was in kindergarten (she is currently in 3rd). We have have had teachers who were very different. Yet each very effective. They have all been able to connect with their students and present different learning methods to help each child reach their maximum potential. We have been very please with our time at KCSMA and look foward to what the next 2 years have to offer!
My girls are in 2nd and 5th grade and the expectations placed upon them as students is grand! They are being steered toward success and responsibilities! We decided to place our children at KCSMA in hopes for more or a rigorous, encouraging environment and that is exactly what we have experienced.
My daughter has attended KCSMA since kindergarten, and we have only had wonderful experiences with the school. All of her teachers have been fantastic, and there are so many opportunities for her to further her learning. She just started the 4th grade, and I expect to see tremendous progress through her learning this year, just as we have in all the other years.
The teachers are just glorified baby sitters. We had to teach the material every night at home, because the teacher wasn't in the classroom enough throughout the day to teach the class. They watched a lot of movies at school, though.
