I am a student here and it 's horrible.All the students care about is acting "swag" and bully other students if they're not like them.They 're so many fights after school and the teachers do not even care. Older students physically hurt younger students after school. This school is not safe once the bell rings. My friends and me get bullied by this girl who wears tight clothes and the principal and staff does nothing about it. Language and behavior is very nasty and rude.All the kids their are getto and sing offensive songs.This is not a school any kid would want to go to and the teachers here are mean and lazy and there too cheap to get new ones.

My younger brother attends this school and he hates it. I find that the students are too preoccupied with behaving like "urban" kids and keeping up with internet trends that their agendas are not in order. The language of the students is disgusting. My brother, previously in private school, comes home with curse words that can't possibly be in the vocabulary of students with futures. I don't think he learns anything. In the school, there are fights on a nearly daily basis. Perhaps if you have a child who is not submissive to what's "cool", and will not associate themselves with students who are, than you will not have a problem. However, if your child is like my brother, and very easily swayed and influenced, then Kawameeh may turn him/her into a child you hardly recognize.

I am a concerned parent of a student at this school. I'll admit there are lots of activities and my child speaks highly of her teachers. I have met her teachers and they are very nice. However, there is zero communication home to the parents and the website is rarely, if ever, updated. If this school is rated so highly by all, then why the 4 rating by this website. And as I read the student reviews, while lovely, many have numerous mis-spelled words. That speaks volumes to me.

My son, loves this school, the curriculum could be stepped up a bit, however, this is a great school if your child spends a lot of time with a high demand sport since a lot of material is covered in the classroom and not sent home to do as homework.

Had some of the best years of my life there. Teachers were great, extracurricular activities were availible, and friends were easily made. Middle school can be a trying time and a time of great change, but there is nothing else like it. Enjoy your time there. GO KAWAMEEH CHIEFS!

I graduated from Kawameeh Middle School last year and I miss it so much. The teachers there were amazing especially Miss Dziedzic, Mrs. Hall and Mr. Arminio. They made my 8th grade year the best of my life and I absolutely loved it. I'd give anything to go back there for just one day. It's so difficult to express how wonderful the experience was. I wouldn't trade it for the world.

My son went to Kawameeh 6-7-8. The guidance department was outstanding. They kept me up to date with progress reports and worked one on one my son and myself to improve his academic skills. There are alot of programs offered as well as opportunities for parents to be involved. I don't think my child would have succeeded in the end if he were at any other middle school. I was impressed by the teachers and there willingness to go the extra mile. If I called to talk to one of them, my call was returned within 24 hours. Thank you Kawameeh Middle School.

I am a student at Kawameeh Middle School. I like this school alot but its kind of boring. I do go in school. The teachers here are really great. They do work hard and everyone does learn something. There are alot of sports and clubs the students here can join. We also have intermerals after school on certain days. Many kids participate in sports and it's a great way to meet new friends. If I had to rate this school from 1 to 10 I would rate it a 8.
