This is especially an area of focus for middle school. School has 0 tolerance policy. Students will get expelled for this.

New administrative hires (Upper School) have improved the school for the better.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a
Upper School faculty range from above average to absolutely outstanding. Several recent hires over the last 3 years are especially fantastic. A high percentage hold advanced degrees.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
Thoughtful assignments that are challenging but not overwhelming.




- a
After some administrative turnover in 2015-2016, the upper school has stabilized and is moving in great directions. Lots of new classes like Senior Projects give students exciting opportunities to find internships or develop art projects and films. They even have a video games class that transitions students from playing games towards computer programming and designing their own games!

This is our third year at KF....my kid wakes up every day excited to go to school! Small classes and attentive staff throughout...this school is a hidden gem.

This is my 4th year as a Kew Forest School parent and I'm pleased to share that my son still loves his school. He reads above grade level, continues to love science and puts extra effort in other academic subjects. The school provides opportunities for students to do well and be well in every single way. As a parent I feel that I can hold my child accountable for being responsible because his teachers communicate consistently. We are partners in the development of his skills and character. The after school staff is amazing too. Each day I go to work and I know that he is safe and encouraged to do his best. His food allergies are not an issue because the cafeteria staff and the nurse are supportive.


Handles bullying effectively: Agree


- a
Parents are notified promptly about any issues concerning bullying. These comments often times are even recorded on a students progress report.

Supports LD students: Agree


- a
The daily five and other in class activities always include an element of student choice. Teachers attend conferences and are always ensuring cultural relevance in their lessons.
