Keithville is a wonderful "family" type school. The teachers are very giving and loving toward the students but must enforce the rules or nothing can be taught. They do this in a very fair and balanced way. This school has worked hard and succeeded in improving their test scores, and continue to improve every year. Keithville is one of the best kept "secrets" in Caddo Public Schools. The teachers constantly give to the students and buy innovative teaching materials out of their own pockets, and work tirelessly to make the school one of the best! Both of my children have excelled at magnet high schools after attending elementary and middle school at Keithville. The principal truly wants to continue to improve the school. She cares about what is being taught and how it is being taught. Keithville is a great school. I wish other parents could realize what a gem we have in this peaceful, rural school! EXCELLENT!

It amazes me how disgruntled employees/parents who do not get their way about Field Day, etc., utilize this site to down the school. They always do it after they are corrected for behavior on the job or when they can't change the school's policy to fit what they want. Both my sons and my nephew attended Keithville School, and we love the school. Students and parents and treated fairly, and the new principal has not only made some positive changes, but test scores are rising at this school. I hope everyone who reads these posts will realize that the true picture is not always painted by the persons posting their gripes.

This school is in desperate need of renovation starting from the head which would be the principal and down to the staff . How could a teacher teach dressed provocative and the principal does nothing about it. Another thing is why is it that certain schools that are in uniforms allow their students in certain days to wear their regular clothes at no cost to the parents, but Keithville charge the parents and child just to wear their own clothes yes it is optional but what happens to the child whose parent is not as fortunate as the next . The school should also work on Field day it is more like dooms day it does not deserve the recognition the child have nothing to do. There is very little activities going on and it is not well put together

This school deteriorates every year in the way they treat children and parents. There are some really great teachers here (which is the only reason I rated it 2 stars), otherwise I'd give it 1 star. The office staff is extremely rude not to mention some of the teacher staff. I have seen them yell at children right in front of parents. They don't care because nothing is ever done about it. Children (and parents) are treated like they are a "total bother"! Heaven forbid the office staff should get up and do their job. If they aren't happy, they should quit and take their misery with them and let someone decent come in and change this school. My children deserve better than this. The last principal left for a different job. I sure hope the new principal can bring some positive changes to this school, otherwise it will be one step away from boot camp.

Keithville is a horrible school. My daughter didn't like it there. I think they should focus on ACADEMICS, not clothes. A student can get ISS and miss out on education for forgetting his or her BELT. That, in my opinion, is really STUPID. Uniforms have made it worse in a way because for one, students get in trouble for not tucking in their shirt, forgetting a belt, or wearing multicolored socks. I don't understand why the people there expect us, in this economy, to buy lots of uniforms that can be up to $Most of the teachers there work very hard, so I would give them four or more stars, ESP. In the second grade. My daughter loved Mrs. Gouletas the best. Anyway, I really think Keithville needs to get their priorities straight, or else they will really suffer the consequences.

Band director demeaning to kids..Nice principal needs to be stronger on weak teachers. With more parent involv. could be best school ever.

I personally have been atending keithville for 7 years and i am very pleased with it overall. even though we can all find a few things to change about something I would hav to say Keithville needs more clubs or extracurricular activities. Even though this does not improve knowledge it will help US interact with others alot better. Also I personally think that Mr.Allen is doing a wonderful job taking on the huge responsibility he is being principle . Well this is all I hav to say now have a blessed day ! GO~EAGLES~!!!!!!~!!!!

I think Keithville is a good school, with great folks running it. Parents need to be parents to theire children and stop wanting others to raise theire children for them. By the time your children get into middle school, its to late. Parent envolvment is the key! If a student acts up and the parent won't help fix the problem, the students needs to go so the rest of the students can finish theier school year and move on. If teachers did not have to spend so much time on these bad students, just think of the time they would have for the students that do want to learn.

Both my Children attend and attended Keithville and the Teachers, Staff and Principal are great. They work indivually with the Students and provide excellent education and communication. I really don't know where alot of these remarks about Parent/Teacher communication or parent involvement is being looked down on. Go to another School and see the difference. Keithville is wonderful and actually ahead of other Schools and most of the Magnet Schools. Please research your information further. It is Family oriented and the Magnet Programs are great too. Maybe you need to contact your Child's Teacher more if you don't feel involved enough! Thank you to Mr. Moran as a leader and the Children there are great with high standards and values, which most of them learn from their Parents and Teachers. Way to go Keithville! God Bless always!

My grandson has been at Keithville in the special pre-school class for 3 years. In his class there were always parents or grandparents present for their field trips and parties which I must add were amazingly wonderful and well structured. The pre-school teachers are so patient, teaching by example and non-threatening yet firm in their expectations. He began with speech difficulties and this school and his teacher and aides were an answer to my prayers.

My child has only been at Keithville for two years. There is not enough parent involvement, but it is difficult if both parents have to work which is the case of most families in the area. I too feel the students should wear uniforms. Mr. Moran is a great principal and Mr. Drain has greatly improved discipline in the elementary. The teachers that my son has had have been excellent! Ms. Phillips in the kindergarten has the patience of Job, and now my son hates to be sick and miss a day in first grade with Ms.Garner. I thought that this year my son would fail, but Ms. Garner with her enthusiasm in teaching and her loving attitude toward all the children has encouraged him to succeed. Both these teachers have been availiable to conference at the drop of a hat. Overall, I am very pleased with Keithville Elementary School.

My child began Keithville at Middle School. Parent involvement is almost nil. More notification needs to be given on upcoming events. I have attended honor assemblies with five parents in the audience, yet over 100 students are getting awards. Each time we schedule a parent/teacher conference, and we have had several, some teachers give the impression we are wasting their time. These same teachers are molding the future leaders of tomorrow. There are some great teachers at Keithville who give 110% and you see the student's willingness to learn in return. I applaud you. I truly believe the school would benefit from uniforms. Too many children are 'outcasted' because of their dress. Mr. Moran is a good leader and a qualified principal. Keithville teachers, you chose your profession, follow his example!

I have two kids at Keithville and I agree with the previous review that stated Keithville had potential however it is not at all tapped into. I will say this year our PTA seems to have it more together than the last four years, although there is a lot more work to be done to benefit the students and the school, more activities such as carnivals, better field days etc. The school also focuses too much on test scores and not the kids that produce the better test scores. There are definitely problems with our school however if more parents became involved and teachers this school could improve drastically. I also feel that we could benefit from uniforms here due to the socioeconomics in this area, it would place all students on the same level, improving relations, looks of the school and possibly help to improve those coveted test scores.

My child really enjoys going to Keithville. The only problem I have is that there is no parent/teacher communication. I feel like my child is missing out, by me not being able to speak with her teacher.

I think Keithville is GREAT! I moved my children there and have had no problems. I love the how they integrate technology into the educational program. It's more like a family here than just a school.

This school has great potential.There is very little parent involvement though.We have gone to school related programs, and there are never more than 40 parents there,School should push more PTA meetings to discuss schools values,& less time selling school fund raisers,& t-shirt sales.There is too much violence,& 'kids clicks' in hallways,between classes,& the teachers turn their heads.Some kids fall into the cracks because there is no teacher/parent communication.All teachers should have E-Mail & web sites,it is the 21 st century,so parents and teachers can get in touch when needed.My child has special needs and we are not sure she receives them.Where is the states funding going?Doesn't the lottery help all the states schools.Give the teachers raises,& hire more qualified teachers. This school has alot of potential.It needs new leadership both school & parents.

Looking at scores from other schools Keithville is way behind. They could be a school that would do very well in scores academically if they would put as much emphasis on education rather than behavior. Parental involvement is just blasted out of the water. I have tried for 14 school days to get two of my childs teachers to call me but the administrators of the school do not get messages to the proper people. This is a shame. I try and try to get more involved with my sons progress but it seems that everything is focused on behavior but they do not wish for the parents to try and get involved they want to do with your child the way they want Not what the parent wants. If you try and bring up education/learning then you are ignored. It is very sad.
