Amount of homework: Just right
June 05, 2015
My son has math homework and reading homework every night, but it's not overwhelming and it's at his speed. It usually takes him less than 10 minutes to complete at 1st grade level.

Develops respect: Strongly agree

Respectful, responsible and safe are the three traits they instill in their students. They earn colts cash to use in a fun little store if they are caught being respectful, responsible or safe. :-)

Absolutely love this school! We moved our child from Converse Elementary and it was the best decision! The staff here is incredible and genuinely cares for all students! The parents understand that they have to put in just as much work to make their children successful and the sense of community and accomplishment will give anyone warm fuzzies on the inside. Administration is wonderful and really listens to any concerns. Kendall Elementary really is a model school for how administration, teachers, parents and students should all work together to make our community a better place to live in!

Very well taught school. Difficult programs that provide good challenge to all students. Teachers interact well with parents and keep them informed on child's progress throughout the program.
