My son received scholarships to two private schools. We toured them, of course, and my husband insisted that I at least LOOK at our neighborhood public school. After doing so, I felt that I couldn't, in good conscience, send him to private. Knight has better resources, better facilities, better, more experienced staff, a clearer curriculum and more diversity. We have had a fabulous experience here, and he receives top quality accelerated programs with meaningful citizenship lessons. The only thing its missing is pretentious consumerism. We heart Knight.

Excellent school! Very caring principal and teachers who nurture a sense of community. I particularly like that the teachers and principal are so accessible. Great effort to intregrate an academic and non-academic curriculum.

Have been SO happy with the caring staff at Knight. Have gone above and beyond. The atmosphere there is 'We care about our kids.' It is evident when talking to the principal or the custodians. Great school.

Knight has a loving history of caring for ALL children. Opening in 1976 with Martha Brady as principal, the school has had only four principals. Not only the children/teachers love this school, but also, the parents and the entire communitysmile when they think about it and the learning that takes place within its walls.

This is a wonderful school! The teachers are great and encourage parent involvement. There is a new principal this year, and we haven't seen much from her yet, but the staff here is just wonderful and here for the kids and parents.

The staff is wonderful here. The principal has been here for years and knows every child by name. My daughter is challenged academically everyday and enjoys the learning experience. I would highly recommend this school.

This school is really great, the principal and staff work well together. They care for each individual child and try to bring out the best in each one. Their patience is amazing. Parental involvement is good but can always be improved.
