My son was struggling at our very good local public elementary school. He was falling drastically behind and they were not able to admit that they weren’t able to provide the kind of teaching and support he needs. Katherine Thomas has transformed his life. From a very withdrawn and insecure child to an open and happy child who is really learning both academically as well as socially. Katherine Thomas is a gem. They really understand, accept and love the kids and I help them come alive.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree

Teachers truly care about the students. They work hard to make sure each student is the best they can be.


Amount of homework: Agree

It is individualized for each student and altered as needed. It is changed if it is too much or not enough.



- a
Each student is respected and treated as an important member of the community. Parents are also considered valued team members.

What can I say!!!!! This is one of the best schools my child has EVERY attended. Leaving DC public schools was and still is worth every trip back and forth from DC to Rockvill Md. When I say they care I mean it. If your child is struggling PLEASE PLEASE get with your advocate ASAP!!!! This school will meet your childs every needs. They take time with the children and most of all.... THEY ARE LEARNING! !!!!! At his or her own pace. I love EVERYTHING about this school and you will too.

KTS helped our child enormously in pre-K through 1st grade. She is now at a mainstream private school performing at the top of her class. She needed help with social thinking, language pragmatics, and OT, all of which KTS provided in abundance. She was very happy at KTS, which provided a secure and fulfilling environment. KTS's speech pathologists are especially good, asis their OT instruction. They also create fun opportunities for kids in the arts. Truly the best we found for kids with social thinking challenges, and we looked at a lot of schools.

KTS is the areas best school for reading and math based learning disabilities. Since my daughter started there 3 years ago she has progressed 5 grade levels in math and is on grade level in reading.

My daughter attends this school. It is a really solid school whose primary focus is always the individual student. The staff is receptive to parent input and each child has a team of professionals who proscribe to the idea that it is important to teach the 'whole child'. My daughter has become a confident child who actually enjoys school since attending KTS! She has made huge progress in all areas.

This is a very good special needs school. The classes are small and the teachers truly care. Like any school, you have to stay on top of the teachers to make sure your child is getting what they need. But I recommend this school for any parent who has a special needs child.
