Like other school districts, King Philip Regional Middle School is resorting to the 'everyone gets a trophy' mentality. No longer are students recognized at an end of year awards ceremony for their efforts and achievements. The eighth grade promotion ceremony consisted of a reflection of two years for the class which was nice but it was quite noticeable that there is recognition for academic achievements is quite diminished from past years - perhaps due to social pressures? who knows...but this is now a common theme in schools and too bad KPMS has succumbed to the pressure. The music program is top notch and the majority of teachers in major subjects, etc. This change in recognition for academic achievements fall squarely on the leadership and certainly changed my impression of the school. It is no wonder there is an increasing number of students in the district that are choosing private schools.

This district school administration is horrible but the teaching staff is good. The sports here is wonderful, the band community is awesome, but the gestapo practice of the districts administration should be investigated by the state.

I have been very satisfied with the education my children received here. It is a nice transition to high school. Frequent emails keep parents informed. Dedicated, caring teachers.

My daughter had a very difficult year due to an ongoing medical issue. The guidance counselor, front office & teachers worked with us to ensure that she was able to stay current and pass on time. We received amazing support throughout the year and I am eternally grateful that my daughter was at KPMS this year. This is a terrific school run by caring & committed professionals. Move into this district if you can.

This is a great school. The teachers are excellent and the principle is very involved. I think parents need to accept that when kids are in school, they should let the teachers excercise as much discipline as required. Many teachers are nervous of upsetting regulatory bodies and the kids' parents. Otherwise, kids are kids and this bunch are committed and enthusiastic about their school.

Principle leadership is excellent. For the principles to know the kids individually is a great feat. Teacher quality is very good. Most of the teachers are very involved in the individual child. Mrs. Runyon can make any child love math. She is very motivating. Team conferences are scheduled right away if there are any problems. Extra help is not only available but encouraged. Parent involvement is the key to a good foundation and encouraged by the teachers and principles. Safety and discipline is also very good. The doors are locked during the day and the staff is very watchful for any bulling or bad behavior and it is disciplined promptly. The best asset is Mrs. Dwight. She actively gets involved with all of her students to make sure they have the tools to become successful both in middle school and after. She is a very devoted and caring guidance councilor.

The teachers and guidance are wonderful..They are always available to either help your child or talk with you. There is before school, after school, study hall, specic days teachers stay, and they will arrange a special time to help your child if needed. Every teacher can be reached through e-mail or telephone. They respond every time. Anytime you need to speak with guidance, they are available. Any child, of any level, can get the help they need in this school. They have a term of art, music, computer, and computer tech. Each year. Wonderful and inexpensive intramural sports program. Five week programs that introduce your child to that sport. Cross country, basketball, baseball, volleyball, ski club, etc. Wide range of activities are available. Also, available, are all kinds of afterschool clubs, art, chess, spanish, french, etc. Wide range. I'm extremely pleased with the quality of education my child is receiving.

Many options for students. French offered to eighth graders this year. Many extracirricular activities, but there could be more. More discipline needed. Not much communication between faculty, and between faculty and parents.

I go to this school. It is a really good school except for the bullying and the disipline. I believe that there needs to be more disipline.
