Kannapolis Middle is an excellent school. Our child has consistantly performed at a very high level with her academics, she is an AIG student. The AIG program is fantastic, both Mrs. Hatley and Mrs. Newell have done an amazing job with the AIG students, I cannot say enough about them. With regards to her regular classes, we have generally been very pleased. We were particulary impressed with a 7th grade social studies teacher, Mrs. Elvington. We felt she conducted her class in an exceptional manner, very engaging with great use of various technologies. From our experience we would give this school very high marks, especially the AIG program. Something else worth mentioning, a couple of years ago this school received an award from the Governor for incorporating digitial technology in the classroom.
Kannapolis Middle School's Teachers and Staff are some of the most dedicated people I've ever met. I've had the opportunity to see other school around my country and here in the USA, but KMS is one of the most gratifying places to work. I've seen dedicated teachers get here at 6:00 a.m. and leave at 7:00 p.m. or later I've seen them do all they can to make learning fun. It's hard to put into words what this staff does to cope with the other variables that affect these children's learning. I'm proud to be a part of it and I feel confident thyat what ever the standards are we will accomplish them and surpass them.
