KES is a wonderful school that children love to go to. They have morning activities for kids that are early risers or for parents that need to be to work early. The kindergarten teacher, Ms. Greenwood, does home visits before the school year and actually rides the bus with the kids at the beginning of the year. Ms. Spinosa, the PE teacher, goes above and beyond. She runs the walking club in the morning where kids get tokens for each lap. She applied and received a grant to have the track put behind the school. She also does a wonderful job with the jump rope program, getting kids to be healthy and active! The school is small and personable. Ms.Aiken at the front desk is warm and welcoming. We are lucky to be such a great little town.
We could not be happier with Kensington elementary. The school is small enough that it feels like all the teachers know all the kids, regardless of grade. The kids all know each other too, and they are such a great, caring community together. The curriculum is well rounded, and they always seem to be trying new thing in order to teach the kids even better. No one slips through the cracks, and the special ed department is fantastic Amazing parents constantly contribute after school programs, and a completely unparalleled phys ed teacher in Mrs Spinosa, who all year has before school programs as well as some of the most inventive games for gym I have ever heard of We feel so lucky to have our children attend this excellent school
We moved here hoping to improve our childrens education. We couldn't have a found a better school. Our children are excelling because of the caring faculty and wonderful curriculum. There is also a good balance of before and after school activities offered here, we love KES!
