The staff is great. They really seem to care. The curriculum has relevance and rigor and my child is never bored. The school seems safe and organized and parents are treated with respect. We made a great choice!

This is an excellent school and if the administration is made aware of an issue it is always handled with professionalism. Mrs. Mason has an outstanding leadership team in place this year with Dr. Campoli and Mrs. Kale. Kemp has top notch teachers that work endless hours to make sure the students reach their full potential. The new safety guidelines are in place to protect our children. Parents are always welcome at Kemp. I have only positive things to say about this school. Kemply the BEST as the neighborhood told me. I agree.

My daughter has been at Kemp for a month now. I was very selective in purchasing my home when I moved to the state of GA. My #1 criteria was ensuring that my daughter was in a top notch school. So far, I am not impressed. Some of my daughter's belongings were stolen from her bookbag and the school appears to be more concerned with not hurting the feelings of the child who violated her property than getting her belongings back. Maybe this is how it's done in GA, but this school does not compare with our old school in IL on a bad day. I am hopeful that it will get better.

We've been at Kemp for many years, and up until this year I have been mostly impressed with the school. Now, because of all the "safety" guidelines that have been put into place, it does not feel like the welcoming, parent family school it once was. I have heard many disappointed parents with how they handle the bully situations at the school. It was great when Mr. Manson was there, but since new administration has come on, it's not the same atmosphere. It seems now they are more concerned with "red tape" and implementing procedures than the actual students. And don't get me started on the amount of money and fundraising they ask for. It seems to become more and more each year.

Kemp is what I call a "private" public school. Every year the administration and teachers put it up a notch. I think they cannot get any better but am I surprised each and every year. Also the parent involvement is incredible. They have something for everyone to get involved from the working to non working parents even grandparents. Kemp for me is the school to be at and other schools need to learn from them . I think they set the standards for all public schools.

Kemp Elementary is an excellent school. The teachers and staff are always happy, working hard to do whatever it takes to make sure students are successful and reach their academic potential. The principal, Kristy Mason does an outstanding job leading this school. The teachers, parents and students love her. She is the guiding force that creates the environment of academic excellence at Kemp.

Kemp is a first class school!!! The administration - Mrs. Mason & Mr. Mason - are wonderful, very personable and easy to work with. The teachers are great too. Many go above and beyond the basics to help students. There is a large amount of parent participation and it really shows. The PTA is strong and has done many wonderful things for the school. I have a 1st & 4th grader and have been very pleased with Kemp.

Kristy Mason and Shea Thomas have done so many wonderful things in the last year as the administration at Kemp. Test scores were raised 6% with 98% of the students meeting or exceeding expectations on the CRCT. What great leadership.

Kemp is awesome! My son started in kindergarten the first year it opened and is now going into the 5th grade. We have had 5 great years there! The teachers are excellent and the parent support is overwhelming! My daughter will start kindergarten in the fall. We look forward to six more years at Kemp!

My child started at Kemp after the holiday break. I had my concerns about my child changing schools, but I am so excited to see the amount of student engagement at Kemp. I met Mrs. Mason, the principal and she was so nice to my son and welcomed him to her school. She also checked on him the next two days to make sure he was having a great year. The PTA and teachers are warm, welcoming and always there for the students. I love Kemp and do not every want to leave this school. I wish all principals made students their most important priority.

Kemp is one of the best schools I have ever seen. My children started at Kemp this year and the principal, Kristy Mason met us at the door to welcome us to the school. Mrs. Mason and Mrs. Thomas, the assistant principal are always in the halls and helping the students. The teachers are very helpful and provide a variety of activities for the students. S. Davis

My daughter started kindergarten and my son was in the third grade when Kemp opened their doors. My son has moved onto middle school while my daughter remains at Kemp for two and a half more years. My son's fifth grade teacher did an excellent job preparing him for middle school. Kemp has been nothing but excellent! The teachers are great and really do care about their students. My daughter has had wonderful teachers each and every year. The school strives to keep communication open between parents, teacher and administration. The halls are always filled with parent volunteers. The teachers and staff are happy and it shows! I highly recommend Kemp!
