I am a alumni of Kappa III, class 2007. This school has prepared me for the funture. Within High school I was able to maintain a 95 overall average and above on my report cars. The rigorous environment, studies, and teachers are the foundation of my educational life. I am now graduating from high school and entering Manhattanville College(34,350 tuition) with a full scholarship. I truly am greatful. Thank you.

I'll admit that this school is really strict and takes some getting used to. However, the majority of kids that leave can not wait to visit again and I guarantee you that they're grateful that they went to this school.

I am a alumni of kappa 3 . And this school has tremundously changed everything in my life. With the knowledge and disipline that the professor showed us have helped me get through many things in hs. Apart of the 2009 graduating class it was very heartbreaking to leave but , we knew for his we open the next doors we will always have kappa doors open to us as well. Although, teachers have came and gone through the years it wasnt expected that the best social studies teacher [pro.Wooden] would leave the school. As me and a few friends went back to visit we saw that his classroom was now a science room.It was very unexpected.All i have to say is i love kappa . & Totally disagree with the person below.

The school doesn't have much of a challenge, and the school rarely checks homework ...The professors only check it in the beginning of the week, just to make a good impression I'm guessing! The principal tells you that you need 5 binders for each subject, which is ridiculous. And throughout the year professors don't even care if you use the binders or not. My opinion is that the school is an absolute failure! Sure the students get '90's and 100's' but once the students get to high school they will not know a thing!!!! Do not enroll your child here! Anywhere else would be better than Kappa III

My son is in the six grade and I feel Kappalll still has a lot of work to do to fit the name they have. The morals and principles of life need to continue to be addressed! It was a rough year first time for my son in middle school but he survived! I give kappa lll 2stars

i am a student at kappa3. through my jouney at the school, i have had a lot of fun and i have matured so much. i learned many new things that i have never learned about and many things that i never thought i would be needing in life. the teachers at kappa feel that they should open doors to all and think that they should open the eyes to the young adults all around about how important school is and what it can do for you in yourlife. if you would like a school that your child will come home home excited and has learned something new everyday than, kappa 3 is the school that your child needs in their life because i know that it made me see things from a diferent perpective.

Hello all, I am an alumnus of KAPPA III. I was in the first graduating class of 2007 and I was very pleased with this school by the time I graduated. Being such a small school, KAPPPA III gives the students another family besides the one at home. The professors are very efficient in what they do and help the students as much as they can. If any parent wants their child to receive a great education for their child as well as a safe and nurturing environment, they should consider KAPPA III.

Hello, my son attends this school and I must say I was skeptical at first.But when I went to his first parent teacher meeting I was pleased to see what great teachers he had, and the principal is a very nice woman. They have after school programs which is great, the only thing there is nothing available for them to do during summer.

I am a student at Kappa 3.I am in the class of Harvard 6 and I think that Kappa is a great school and it helps students prepare for the future and follow their dreams.All i want to say to the parents is that if you want your child to end up with a good future choose Kappa 3.I hope that Proffesor Alverez,Bimbi,Raginwala,Carneighlia,Lebow,Crowley,Cano,and all the other teachers see this.If I didn't write your name it's because it's a lot of yall.So all i want to say is keep up with the good work in teaching.
