Handles bullying effectively: Neutral


- a
I have no experience with bullying at Kennard . I do not have any input as to whether or not the school effectively handles it. Although, I suspect they do.

Supports LD students: Neutral


- a
I do not have any experience or input regarding students with disabilities. My experience has been great.


Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
Teachers and the principal take an active role in managing the school. I have no complaints.

Develops character: Agree


- a
Overall, this school exhibits respect and compassion. However, more understanding could be given to students who struggle to stay on task. Simply writing up a child for being off task does not seem productive.

Teacher effectiveness: Agree


- a
Only one bad teacher so far, all others are great. I'd like to believe one bad doesn't speak for the school's others.


Amount of homework: Neutral


- a
Each teacher is different. I prefer those who think homework isn't a must each night.

Kennard has served us well. Any complaint would be the lack of understanding regarding student behavior. Kids are impulsive. Writing up a student 25+ times in a school year clearly does nothing to correct behavior. A little compassion would have gone a long way.

I've been a Kennard parent for five years. This school is wildly overrated. Most of the teachers are excellent but the overall organization of school activities is lackluster. For being an advanced curriculum school, far more money and effort is spent on remedial students than on advanced ones. The PTO is quite active but there's a heavily engrained notion that 'inclusion' translates to catering to struggling students at all costs. While it sounds noble, the net result is that the needs of more advanced students take a back seat to everything else. I've come to expect this attitude in traditional schools but Kennard was supposed to be different. All in all, it's not a bad school, just not a great one.

Our children first attended Mallinckrodt and now attend Kennard. If you are choosing between the two, it is worth it to put them both down on your list for the lottery but, hands down, Kennard should be the first choice. There is no question that it is the better school. From the nicer facility itself to the wonderful teachers and staff to the well established robust PTO that welcomes you in and shows you the ropes... Kennard is better. The music teacher alone is reason enough to send your child here. I observed her class once and it was like watching magic. She absolutely captivates and inspires her students. Every teacher we have had has been great but she is once in a lifetime kind of special!

I LOVE Kennard CJA! Great principal, staff, parents and curriculum. I love all Kennard has to offer!
