The Principal never seems to know what is going on. She seems to have no control over the children in her school. I had to speak to her several times about a bullying issue, but she couldn't even remember the countless times I had been in there to speak to her. It is probably because she walks away and sends me to another staff member to solve the issue. She is one of the least effective and passive administrators I have ever encountered in my entire school career. I think the school would be a much more productive environment if the state replaced her as principal.
Furthermore, my daughter hates this school. The children are constantly disrupting my daughter when trying to learn. She has been bullied with minimal action taken by the school. She used to love school, but now she doesn't even want to go. She constantly comes home visibly upset. It has come to a point that I may have to drop out of school myself, just to home school my daughter because the principal is really that frustrating to deal with.
I love Kensington Avenue School because of the homey atmosphere, wonderful kids, and caring adults. The students are polite, considerate, and show respect in a variety of ways. For instance, when walking through the halls, the students will give 'a wink and a ' or be more thatn willing to hold the door open for the next person in line. They are constantly striving to meet (or exceed) the standard while simultaneously engaging in fun hands-on activities. I am proud to be a member of the staff at Kensington Ave. School and truly enjoy going to work each day.
This school is extremely attentive to the students needs. There are several programs to keep the children focused. The teachers are extremely devoted. There are several programs available to keep children occupied, into school and proud of themselves. Although the numbers on this website may not look impressive I have to say this school is wonderful as a whole! My children have all passed the MCAS and one even received higher then normal scores which were congratulated by the superintendant of schools. I am so proud of this school and especially Ms Nollee as she is a beautiful person for the children to have. Thank you
