I have dealt with Kolmar for 10+ years and have had very few issues. I have had one grad from this school and two more still in it. Great school. Great teachers.
I have three children which all have attended this school. I can't say enough positive things about Kolmar. My daughter who needed speech class when she started her Kindergarden year at Kolmar. The resources that they had available to her and the amount of time that all the teachers put in to make sure that my daughter received all the necessary help she needed. Alot of other schools don't have the resources that Kolmar has. Alot of times, students have to be sent to other schools to get the assistance they need, but at Kolmar, the assistance comes to Kolmar. I HIGHLY recommend Kolmar school!!
My child hates this school. I hate this school. The teachers have no experience. Communitation is very poor. My child was doing great before we came to this school. I have alot to compare to from other schools, and teachers. These teachers don't know what to do when your child is having a problem. And the school has no resources to help. They act like they dont have time to care.
This is an average school. I think the school would be better if they had more money to spend on programs.
My daughter had her first year last year and did very well. Most of the kids and parents are very nice, and the staff is very friendly!
Kolmar is an excellent school. My son has attended this school since kindergarten and we both love the teachers, principal and the entire staff. They treat each and every child as if they were their own child. Kudos to everyone at Kolmar School and the District for its continued support.
I have a 7th grader 5th grader and 1st grader at kolmar and for the most part I am very happy with their education. There is always a teacher or staff member somewhere along the lnes that you clash with but that is true of any school, yes even those top rated schools. Kolmar has made great improvements since we started here and all 3 of my kids love it. sure it would be nice to have more clubs or activities but all that takes money. i'd rather have my child get a good education and foundation for high school than have them be in 20 clubs. Also, more parents need to get involved. our parent group has had the same faces present for years. Hey parents, it's fun to be involved and up at school doing things for our kids, come join a club kolmar does have.
i am a student here and ive been here since kingergarden. kolmar is okay. this year since we have alot more sports and clubs & hot lunches everything is alot beter. we also have new courses like spanish and communications ! sometimes the teachers are really annoying but that okay. the parents dont really get involved much the kids do alot of clubs some things here are basketball , volleyball, cheerleading, track,photography club,science club, art club,step team, && many more. i would say this school is average.
I think Kolmar is a wonderful school,the teachers are wonderful.They keep me informed about my child.If I have a problem the teachers are there to help me with that problem, if I am not satisfied I can talk to someone else.I have not been disapointed .
Office staff is great. Parent group is okay.I can only speak for Jr High and to me it seems like there's nothing for Jr High students. I noticed there's a new Art club but it's only offered for younger grades. All there is of course is sports and since some kids are only here for jr high they're not that comfortable being the 'new kids'. Is there a cool teacher that could have a video game club or anime -lets get with the times some of these kids could design video games or work in animation someday but we invest so much time,money and energy in sports because why ? character, glory days for parents? Bill Gates has character and he was a computer geek. I know jr.high is difficult but it seems all the activities are designed to just contain them and keep them away from the other grades.
My kids have been going to this school for 13 years and the school continues to improve and make changes for the better. They have enjoyed their time at this school.
Kolmar School has a dedicated staff who care deeply about education. You can find teachers at school early in the morning, and staying late in the day working to update curriculum, plan effective lessons, and to provide their students with a high quality elementary education. The faculty as a whole believes that every student is valuable and deserves the best that we can provide even when faced with limited parent support.
This school needs major improvement. They need more funding. They need an honors program, and improvement on the programs they do have.
my children have been going here for years and have no problems they have done very well her..
i think that this school is going downhill very fast. the quality of the education and the lack of capable teachers and principle will be its downfall. If the situation doesnt change soon,im pulling my kids out and sending them elsewhere!!!!!!!!
My child started out with a great education with the exception a few teachers not able to teach younger children because of their lack of patience. I advise against 6-8th grade at this school.
The quality of thier academic programs are horrible they have no school activities that are all year round except tutoring. The Tutoring is not very good in this school. They only have 2 sports 1 for girls and 1 for boys.
Kolmar does a great job with the resources currently available. I think the students would greatly benefit from more funding and I would support property tax increases to direct more finances to the school. I am concerned about the teacher turnover rate and believe it is directly correlated with the low pay. Teachers seem to use Kolmar to gather experience and then move on to better paying schools at the expense of our kids. I do, however, applaud the principal (Ms. Thompson) for her outstanding leadership.
Great school! Very dedicated teachers. The school attempts to get the parents involved.
