This school is awful. All the students grade 5 and up do is talk trash about each other. It doesn't matter if you've known that person since Kindergarten, they will still stab you in the back. I left the school, but before, I was bullied by my 'friends', who can't even say the truth of whether or not they like you. A girl announced my crush in front of the whole class one day. I've developed social anxiety disorder because of everything that happened to me in 6th grade.

Horrible administration, pretty good teachers. The administration is rude, unprofessional and disrespectful to parents, kids and teachers. I have heard from many that the teachers at the school do not feel supported and reflects on student progress. A very negative environment.

My children are current (2014) students. I do not like the school. My children want to transfer. Most of the teachers pick on students. One teacher made fun of a little boys name in front of the whole classroom. Teachers hit children. I attended an activity at the end of the school year and a group of Caucasian teachers trashed talked the principal very badly as if I wasn't standing there. They have a very unfair discipline technique and need to discipline themselves. Parents can't visit the classrooms because they say it's distracting, but the classrooms are chaos with children who have tantrums. My children are on the waiting list for a better school and environment.

Kipling is a wonderful school. The principal, administration and teachers are very helpful and professional. They are all about the child and his/her needs. There are a lot of outside environmental things that I would improve on such as the playground, and adding on an annex for more room. But other than that overall, I am pretty satisfied with the school.

This school is brutal. The kids are terrible. The arts programs are not that great (it's a fine arts school). There is talk about drugs, guns, fights, and all sorts of drama. I am a former student who transferred because of all this bullying and abuse that was going on with me and some other girls.

I think Kipling is a very nice school my son completed the kidnergarten school year there and my son learned so much from his teacher; addition, subtraction, multiplication, reading and writing , and the teaching staff and the principle is excellent with the students my son will stay at that school until he graduates from 8th grade.

I think Kipling School teachers should go bak to school and learn more about the characteristic of students with special needs. So they wont make mistakes when providing them with an appropriate education.

Kipling is one of the few schools that have a dance program. I love the dance program and could not be happier with the teacher. She does a great job with the kids and my child loves attending dance class. It is her favorite part of the day. I feel that the fine arts setting that this school offers is a fabulous one!

As a parent, I am greatly satisfied with this school. I am very impressed with the way this schools achievement test scores have risen since my children have been in attendance there the past 2 years. (Grades 2 and 5). The principal does a great job of making sure the teachers are up to par with their education and state testing standards which in turn has an impact on the way our children are being taught. Keep up the good work Kipling!!

Kipling School in my opinion is an excellent school. They have many programs others don't have and the curriculum is well rounded. I love the principal because she doesn't tolerate nonsense but she is reachable.
