Kenwood has been a GREAT place to have my daughter. The staff are a caring group of people and I feel so blessed to have my daughter there (and my son will be there in a couple of years!)

I feel Kenwood grade school is a very good school & they work hard on giving your kids a very good education. My two kids went to Kenwood from Kindergarden thru 6th grade.

The principal is wonderful at this school. She is concerned with the safety and education. She knows all the kids by name and grade. She interacts with them daily. The teacher my son has is very patient and very aware of the kids and what level they are at learning. She does not discourage the kids from learning. She helps them out. I have enjoyed the school so far. My son is in Kindergarten.
