Front desk secretaries and staff are incredibly rude. I called to advise that I was picking up my child early because of a family emergency. The secretary who answered, was dismissive and as a first year parent it made me feel completely unimportant. I question the way children are being treated and spoken to. Paitnece is a virtue and while I understand that there are others that can test that patience a calm, cool, and caring tone should always be in place when in a school setting. As a school that is in one of the best counties in this country professionalism, courtesy and kindness should be reflected in the way that staff interacts with others. I'm incredibly disappointed and sincerely hope that said secretary was having an off day. I will be speaking to the principal.

I've heard of this school and everyone makes it seem so good, when in actuality, it's not.

The teachers show great concern for the students and their future success. The principal seems well versed in the continuing education of the students on through high school.

I am a student and the school is great. There are a lot of afterschool activites and many offers to do above grade level material. Though there are flaws like corny and unessary "Sayings". Like ROAR... Although it's really fun. There is even a school store so you could purshace things with fake money you could earn. And they are pretty determined about student participation.

My child is attending KMS and we believe it is an excellent school. The office staff are friendly and considerate. The principal, Ms. Thomas, is engaging and involved. It's nice to see the staff care about the students. Anytime we have had a concern the staff has been quick to listen and act when necessary. From what we've experienced the majority of students at KMS are respectful and interested in learning.

Kingsview is one of the better middle schools in Upper Montgomery County. One thing that stands out for me is the friendliness of the office staff. They are quick to greet a visitor and see what they can do to help. A number of other schools I've been too have office staff that are nonengaged with visitors, grumpy and often suspicious of the motives of any child that shows up in the office. I salute Kingsview for breaking with that trend.

I'm a student at KMS and I love it! The teachers are all so nice and you learn so much while having a great time. The other students there are awesome and you always feel really safe at school. The emergency procedures are well laid out with the exception of the new tornado drill. I'm just sad our principal is leaving but he sure improved the school a whole lot!

I am a parent of a student that once attended KVMS. We left the state and have returned, hoping to have my son re-enrolled in KVMS. While living in another state I found that KVMS is a great school compared to the one that my son had to attend while in Georgia. I think that the prinicpal, staff and teachers are very helpful and do there best to assist the parent and student with whatever is needed. I rate KVMS a great school and feel proud that my son attends.

My older daughter graduated from Kingsview in 2005 and my younger daughter will start attending September 2007. My review does not cover the last two school years, a period of major change since the opening of a new middle school nearby alleviated the overcrowding problem. Overall, the school is very good. Teacher quality is generally good. Some were excellent, some mediocre, but most were good to very good. Math, English, and World Studies were good/very good. Science was weak. Foreign language teachers were very good but the classes were large so individual attention from the teacher was low. The principal Mr. Queen is a strong leader, which is mostly good but he did seem to disregard parental feedback.

I am a student attending Kingsview M.S. I do not like this school. One because it is just like Elementery school. For example= walking in lines everywhere we walk. Plus the principle is probally the cause of that. Also that he has split the school up into communities. How that works is by having it like this= in community 1 there is a certain amount of 6th,7th,& 8th graders, and it's like that in all four communities. And then on top of that the school is extremly crowded, like 1500 kids crowded.

this school is very crowded, but i think it manages itself fine judging by the massive amount of students. they have many extracurricular activities for students and have many intelligent young students. one student, last year, won the county-wide geography bee. the gifted-and-talented program is encouraged and they do great for kids. the music and arts program is wonderful. they have an award winning chorus AND band AND orchestra. the chorus is filled with many talented students as well as band and orchestra. overall, this school is very good.
