This is a very nice school. Teachers are so good and we can always ask them if there is any issues and they will always respond to our E Mail ASAP. I think this school is 9 out of 10. Principal is really good.

A-core is the best.The teachers are really nice and they barely give us homework on weekends or on breaks.My favorite subject is social studies which is taught by Mrs.Gentry and Mrs.K. The cooking club is also something I enjoy because every meeting we get to make something fun>

This school is amazing! So fun! I look forward to school everyday, and they have activities all the time, lots of field trips, and they have after school programs for homework to get done. You also get a chance to be with everyone in the school at some points. Im a 7th grader of 09 and its great, it really is!

My son is in 7th grade. I am glad he has just As and Bs. The reporting system allows parent to be involved before the quota is over not after. Fix some home work to higher grade or make sure it simply gets registered (as few times it was not. His Band teacher is just fantastic. Band is an academic class in this school if you choose so and it is expanding every year. My son does not have a locker as there is shortage here. Some organizational moments( buses overcrowded for example) is still a problem. I do think district should come up with text books for social studies and sience. Overall it is good just 3 years old school Administrative staff are very helpful and teachers care for student to exceed.

I am a former student at KWMS. In my opinion, out of all the schools I've attended in the past, KWMS has been my favorite. For they have many after school activities the student are able to join. (Ex. Sports,Band,Orchestra,Chorus, Newspaper,Student Council etc.)Students are able to make new friends while these joining activities. As for the academic classes KWMS has a block shedule which allows the students to see each class 3 times a week. As for the teachers,they will help you with anything. They get us very prepared with things like tests or quizzes. The teachers KWMS are always there to help a student a need.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 4 and 7 in science. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

In 2013 the Illinois State Board of Education raised the performance expectations for the ISAT in reading and math. These expectations have been adjusted to better align with the Common Core State Standards, a multi-state initiative that established year-by-year guidelines outlining the grade-specific skills and content students need to stay on the path to college and career readiness. The higher expectations of the new standards will result in a downward shift of where students rank in meeting or exceeding standards.
