The KCC school is a wonderful place to learn. Our son is thriving! The principal is very visible, friendly and cares about each child. I have always felt the communication is strong. The teachers care and give an amazing education. We love the KCC!

My son started second grade at this school and loves it. He's been doing well and doesn't fear riding the bus like he did at his old school. He's been to a new school every year for three school years and this one has been his favorite. His test scores shows he's at or above his current grade level. He comes home happy and wants to go to school the next day. He has a great teacher, Mrs. Berube, and I know it's all because of her. My family is mixed race and I don't feel any wierd or uncomfortable vibes at the school from anyone. It's a great small school for a great small community.

I cannot say enough about this school. My daughter started Kindergarten here this year, and I have been astounding by the overall positive vibe coming from the teachers, administrators, office staff...even the bus drivers! The communication between my daughter's teacher and I has been ongoing and consistent, and I am notified daily of any and all events pertaining to the school, PTO, and community. My daughter comes home happy every day from all the positive reinforcement she has received throughout her school day. It is reflected in her smile, her stories, and all her school work that is sent home stickered and approved by her teacher(s). I love the fact that this school goes up through 2nd Grade only; it gives the younger kids a chance to get accustomed to a 'real' school without being overwhelmed or distracted by kids in higher grades. I am impressed beyond my highest expectations!

The Integrated Arts program at the Coombs School is a wonderfully nurturing program integrating music, theater, dance, art and literature.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
