I have 2 children that currently attend Kinyon. I am extremely happy, comfortable & grateful for the entire staff at school. Principal McGuire is top notch. Teachers there are like second mothers. I am proud to be a Kinyon family.

Hello, we take the safety of our students very seriously. All buildings are locked with the exception of the morning entry time and at that point they are manned with staff. We have cameras throughout the building inside and out. These are monitored in the building as well as the board of education and police have secured web access to observe the safety of the building. To even get in the building we have a speaker / video camera that all parents must speak into and get buzzed in. We have a rich curriculum that has science and social studies embedded into the reading program as well as the rest of the day is devoted to math with common assessments to drive teaching practice and identify those that need help and enrichment. Students that need additional help in reading and math spend time with a math interventionist or reading interventionist to get the needed help. Those that do not need the additional help are given enrichment and extension activities and lessons to further their understanding and challenge them. Please, if you have questions or concerns, I want to hear from you! I have an open door policy and I want to make Kinyon the best possible experience for all families!

My child has been attending for 2 years. He is now in 1st grade. Safety procedures are not up to par. I walked in the school at 10:50am... The doors were not locked. Way too much homework is sent home. Seems like only thing they teach in kindergarten and 1st grade is reading. My child needs to be challenged more in math.

Kinyon is a GREAT school. Mrs. McGurire is the best thing that has happend to our school and we can go no where but up from here. Looking forward to the next school year and the 4 more years that will come after it. If you are looking for a school to send your child to look no more. One meeting with Mrs. McGuire and you will feel like family and be treated like family. I have 3 children and all of them are above avrage on meep scores. I will not only say our school is the best. I have the scores to prove it! Hope to see you next year at Kinyon. I am a Kinyon Roadrunner and PROUD of it!

This school has failed our students. The teachers need to go back to school and re-educate themselves. None of my children or family members will be attending this school next year.

My son attends Kinyon, he is a smart child who is being challenged by his teacher. The school is well maintained, loving and caring. The new principal, Mrs. McGuire, had boundless energy and loves the children. She is approachable and really is invested in Kinyon school. I recommend this school to ANYONE!

Kinyon has great teachers who go Who put a considerable amount of time into their lesson plans and always make sure, no matter how long it takes, that each student understands the details of the subject that their learning about. They offer their own time to stay after school and help those children who require extra help with their work or subject. My child's school, however, like most schools in the state of Michigan has suffered major setbacks in the form of state budget cuts and are running low on resources such as up to date text books and stationary. And things look to be like their going to get worse on oct. 1 when the new budget will be unfolded. The state congress is talking about cutting more money out of the state budget for schools to plug our 247 million dollar state deficit. They could resolve this issue by issuing a tax on bottled water and sporting events, but, that would be to much of a burden on the citizens of Michigan or so I have read. Thank you for your time and I hope you will take a look at this school or at least pick another Michigan school. Sincerely, David M. Trader.

Way too much homework is given. My son struggles in math and needs to be able to have his teacher around to help explain things he doesn't understand. Instead the lesson is briefly explained and the students are told to put it away and take it home for homework. While I do believe that some homework is ok, there is just way too much being sent home. Whatever happened to completing assignment in school?

My son started kindergarten three years ago now at Kinyon and we have had a very good experience. He was very lucky with his kindergarten teacher, and I was very happy with his 1st then to 2nd grade teacher. Both his teachers were experienced and cared deeply about each and every child. He has respect for both of them to this day. He now is starting third grade and loves it. I like the discipline the school presents. The faculty, what I have came in contact with, is very good. The principal and secretaries are very helpful. Overall I am very happy my son goes to Kinyon. He feels proud to be a student there. This is a school that is always asking for parent involvement and have many opportunities to be helpful in your childs' school program. Academically it is a very good school.
