I will begin by saying i have children in kolb as well as MacGregor. MacGregor is amazing mostly do to the principal and staff. they are always involved in every aspect of the school. Kolb on the otherhand is terrible. The principal is almost never around. if you can find him he will most likely try to avoid you. the teachers are snobbish and never seam like they really like kids. i have dealt with several. MacGregors programs are almost always set up to make the kids and parents feel welcome and informed. such as the breakfast programs, after school programs, and pretty much any other for that matter. After the first weak of school at kolb parents arn't even suposed to enter the school. At MacGregor parents are always welcome! Kolb seams more like a punishment for children. maybe 10 years from now Kolb will have different staffing and things could be better, but for now i wish i could avoid Kolb

Despite Kolb being home to BCPS' magnet Gifted/Talented classrooms, the Principal shows no appreciation for academic excellence. It's absurd that such a large school district's best and brightest students (completing work two years ahead of their non-G/T peers) receive absolutely no meaningful acknowledgement of their efforts or achievements from either him or district Administration. Sadly, I suspect that this Principal's "inattentive" style also permeates his relationship with the school's teachers, several of whom are quite excellent.

The school has been revamped for two summers now and it's beautiful. We have a wonderful bunch of Teacher's and an awesome principal. I am a volunteer for many and many of years now and I won't quit until I'm not needed anymore. I had Grandchildren go there but now they are all grown up.

My daughter is currently in second grade and has been at Kolb school since kindergarten. I have had nothing but good experiences thus far in her education. The teachers are always more than willing to talk about her learning levels with me. The communication levels with all the staff at Kolb are excellent. The principals door is always open, as is the school service workers. I think that every teacher and staff member at Kolb is extremely dedicated to giving our students not only the best education possible, but also the best guidance and mentoring that they can provide.
