I am very surprised and do not agree with the 3 rating for KMS at all. My son currently attends KMS and my daughter also attended. The cluster program is great for creating communities and I've found the school to have an excellent mix of seasoned and new teachers that helps sustain many traditions and infuse new ideas. Both of my children were in the band programs as well as played sports. The extracurriculars are inclusive without being super competitive. Overall I've been very pleased with Keene's elementary and middle schools.

KMS did not meet our student's academic needs. The pace was way too slow. Some kids need more enrichment and this school did not offer a solid curriculum for fast paced learners. Come on Keene Middle School.......you could do a lot more with your academic classes.

After reading the review Mrs North Carolina wrote, I had to add my review. Sorry North Carolina, but being from Boston myself, (which tops NC) Keene Middle School is the best school around. Dottie Frazier fights for her students and community, as well as the rest of her staff. Even if I wanted to move, I wouldnt because I love this school and staff that much. My children have thrived here. As in all schools, the effort your children put into their work, will show what they get out of it. After school activities and clubs, keep the children busy, and less likely to get into trouble. A very important note to add is the Zero Tolerance Policy for any bullies. (In this day and age, that is HUGE!) Joe Bobbin, Ed Singer, and Deb Gallagher are wonderful~ Kudos to Keene Middle School ! Great job!

I'm a student at this school and I feel that it doesn't offer enough challenge for those whom require it but most of the teacher are wonderful and the adminstration is fabulous.

Do not send your children here. We are from North Carolina (yes the south) and our children are about 1.5 to 2 years ahead of what they are teaching. Your child will not be prepared for much in life. The teachers seem decent, but the principals and up are selling our children short. We moved because we value our childrens education. At this school everyone is 'taught' to the lowest childs ability. They call it 'leveling,' I call it dumbing everyone down. Shame on you.

This school has many different sports, 3 art clubs, 3 bands, 2 jazz bands and intermural sports after school. Each cluster has its own advisor and cousoler making the children feel at ease and comfortable. The academic programs including math counts, luminary readers, and french and spanish teachers for each grade are exelent. I know my daughter enjoys the school very much.
