The school cannot keep a principal. Problems with our childs teacher,not seeming to care and wanting to blame it on ADD instead of looking into the problem of student not being challenged and being bored .We moved out child to Central road when we had the chance and Kinball failed their test again and we are completely thrilled with our choice.( just so happens that the whole add thing was resolved when professional, caring teaching was done) there seems to be some deep political problems holding the school down. maybe not the fault of the staff either way I dont want my kids to suffer as a result
My child transferred to Central Rd. Kimball Hill has Rude Teacher's that have been yelling at their students and the Principal and V.P. don't do anything to stop it. In recent years at my home school it has not gotten better. It has only gotten worse. I don't recommend sending any child to this school. Especially if you don't want them to be bullied as my daughter has in the past few years!
There is so much lacking at this school. They can't even keep a principal more than 2 years. That to me say volumes!! St. Colette is the better school! If you want your child to be ready for high school and beyond St. Colette is the way to go! I wish I had pulled my child out sooner than I did. The principal has be there for over 30 years and know exactly how a school needs to be run!
Former parent of Kimball Hill. School was okay, but not at all challenging. Recently switched to St. Colette and are much happier. If you are unhappy with this school, consider St. Colette. Small class sizes and excellent teachers.
Im the perent of 5th grade and i love the teachers quality they very helpful and kind and always for kid education wich is great but what bothers me it the office workers they very nice on the one hand but on the other they VERY disappointment not friendly not helpful they dont care about perents concern even they ask to leave the office !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! .
Kimball Hill has a strong principal who is a good communicator to parents and is respected by students. The school's positive behavior model is commendable and students have a sense of pride in attending. Class size tends to be too large to my liking and I would like to see a more challenging curriculum for lower grades. Overall we have been pleased with our child's experience and feel that under the leadership of the relatively new principal, this school will make great strides in the coming years.
At Kimball Hill the teachers are amazing.They really work with the kids and help them in SO many ways. Most of the Program Assitants are a tad mean and unfair but some are AMAZING.The kids can be a bit...not so nice but some teachers are very strict on that,some sadly aren't.The poeple and community are okay.They have a very good Special Education Dpt.But overall if anything go to this school for the teachers!They are the best.
