Posted June 1, 2010

When we moved from California to NJ one of our main concerns was the school system and experience for our daughter going into 4th grade. Immediately she was accepted and treated with kindness. The entire staff have been very helpful and superb in granting her education. The PTA has wonderful programs to help support the school and the students. The parents are very involved. It is such a refreshing change from where we were. I am sad we had to move and are no longer in the school district. KDM and all of the staff will be missed by my family.

As a parent of a current KDM student and 3 older KDM graduates, I have been around the school for a great many years. - The teaching staff as well as the office staff, nursing staff and remaining faculty are fantastic with the kids from the very beginning. They don't let a child slip by. There is close attention paid to each child as an individual as well as a member of a classroom. The curriculum has changed over the years, but it is geared to have the children grasp the full knowledge of a given subject. KDM has an outstanding academic line up. I have been thrilled to have my children attented this school. The PTA has always provided outstanding support for the school and the children. Overall, KDM is a superb school in every aspect. (Thank you KDM for all the wonderful memories)

K does have 20 students, but they also have a full time aid helping the teacher in the class! The afternoon session class only has 13 children.

I think that the class sizes are getting too large. K has approx 20 children per class! I just think that is too much for one teacher to handle.
