Kappa VI is a stifling environment for both the staff and students like. Students have no opportunity to mature there as they are given no chance to take responsibility for their learning. Outward appearance is of big concern and the administration will ensure that grades are boosted, students retake the same tests multiple times to ensure they pass and the dean's ideas for discipline are simply outdated and ineffective. While most students do behave, those who are consistently out of line have been that way for the three years they have been at Kappa because there are no new strategies used to deal with them. Additionally, IEP requirements are often not met and the teacher turn over rate is very high. Kappa VI will be going into the 2014-2015 school year with only five teachers from the previous school year.
Very good school but has a bunch of rules the teachers are nice and they never give up when a cadet doesn't understand anything
Kappa vi is a great school,its curriculum pushes the students to try their best and the teachers are amazing and treat the kids like their ow and I should know since I just graduated. There are many friendly faces in the school and everyone knows everyone which is a good thing. Love this school and now moving on to Brooklyn technical high school thanks to it.
I thought that KAPPA was a great school at first until my son actually began attending the school. The curriculum is too difficult and the teachers do not seem to understand that students will have a difficult time learning topics that are not developmentally appropriate. The principal is very very very rude and yelled and stormed out of a meeting TWICE when trying to discuss issues relating to my son. The teachers have NO IDEA about IEPs or special needs students and do not work with parents. Teachers have been disrespectful and yelled at my son for not understanding the work, focusing, or working faster and they are well aware of his disabiltiy. The teachers are very unwilling to work with parents and seem to feel as if "It's my way or the highway" There is also a HIGH turnover rate, 7 teachers left since last year alone. I would not suggest this school to any parent with a child that has an IEP or any parent that demands their child be treated fairly.
As a proud parent , im searching for a school for my daughter and reading the reviews i've received mixed messages and i have a very smart daughter and is looking for the right school for her to further her jhs education. There was a comment that concerned me saying the teachers are not reliable and its very disturbing.
this school is an excellent school. This is my last year and i am going to miss it very much, the circriculam, the professors and their programs. They have the best education as a middle school .They will keep you in line and help you become a better person. I will consider this school to be a spealized middle school. If you want your child to be successful in life start it by sending them to kappavi. i even wish they had a Kappa VI high school.
i like this school but i feel like it has a lot of bullieng between the 6th graders and 8th graders
Kappa VI is a punative and stifling 'learning' environment. It's leadership kills the love of exploration in students, and strangles teacher creativity.
I believe there were misinformation as well and miscommunication between teachers and parents. As an involved parent, I tried on several occasions to schedule meetings to find ways on how to deal with certain issues but was not at all satisfied with the way things were handled. I do not recommend this school.
i like this school it gives you a good education and it helps you get tio a great high school
This school is a greats chool that perpare us kids for our future. This school gives us a better chance to help us make it to a great high school but also aim for the top colleges like Harvard, Yale or even Prinston. I am proud to say I am a KAPPA VI student and I say we are the best and we strive to our highest potential. I am proud to say that I am going to be 1 of the many that are going to be the first graduates of 2008. I am proud to be the first class of 2008-2009. I am also proud to acknowlege that KAPPA VI will be on my college and high school application. so make the step and show your child to a better future.
Kappa VI is an excellent school. The learning environment is excellent. The staff is caring and truly concern for the welfare of every child. The Principal is doing a superb job keeping his promise of excellence for all students. I recomend other schools in this neighborhood to take a que from Kappa VI and provide safe, educational environment for the children of this neighborhood.
This school has great teachers who really strive for their students to get good grades and get high scores o their state test! Great school!
