Called school three times within 15 minutes with only a recording to speak with!!! POOR, POOR, service... what if this was an emergency??? Try understanding from my point of view!
Excellent school my two kids are there .Love all staff and Rules as well.My kids are in 4rth and Ist grade ms Loza is so nice and hard worker teacher Ms Witte is also so nice and having great method of teaching.
After reading these reviews on this school doesn't encourage me or make me feel comfortable of sending my child there who has global developmental delays (special edu) for Pre K. Wondering if this school can handle my child's educational needs or even have the needed resources.
This is a terrible school that is grooming their horrible students to attend and even more dismal Sullivan HS. I can't believe the lack of pretty much everything at this school. No art classes, no extracurricular activities. My child refers to it as Kilmer Fight Club since violence among the students is so prevalent. I would have never moved into this neighborhood if I would have known how awful this school is.
Kilmer went from a struggling neighborhood school to one of the best in a few short years. My daughter is in Mr. Finlay's pre-k class and is loving it! She is also being encouraged by Mrs. Colon to expand her Spanish vocabulary. Being bi-lingual in this country is a must for the future. With all the red tape public school teachers have to wade through, the teachers at this school are trying their best to better their school and have made great strides. It is up to the parents and the community to support their neighborhood public schools to make them the type of schools they want to send their kids to. Kilmer is a good school with a very bright future!
Great Pre-k program, Mr. Finlay and Ms. Colon are two of the best in the city! My son learned so much and loved going to school. Keep up the great work.
