I am a student at KES and I think this school is a great school for children to go to. I am a fifth grade student and I have always loved my teachers and they may have a lot of hispanic people there but it only makes my school better because we get to expirence a bunch of different cultures and the principal is os nice and even if you do something wrong she will always make you feel like you are worth something and the teachers are always so nice and they love what they are doing educating kids and if that is not enough then what is! Andf as far as the hispanic thing goes well lets face it you are not going to find a scholl in forsyth county or even tin the world that does not have a mixture of people!

Large school with too many people. This school is located in an older section of town with many rental properties surrounding it. This part of town has a large spanish speaking influence so your children will most likely be rooming with a 50/50 mix. If we can, we will send our kids elsewhere or homeschool. Try for another school if possible.

Kernersville is an awesome school. Absolutely on top of Education. Our son finds school usually easy, but he was challenged at K'ville. Their reading program is very uplifting and great emphasis is placed on making study a priority.

My family is extrememly pleased with Kernersville Elementary. I currently have a 3rd grader and a Kindergartener. My 3rd grader has had wonderful, caring teachers and really enjoys going to school each day. My Kindergartener had some adjustment problems at first, but because of his teachers showing him love, support, and understanding, he doesn't mind going to school now. I also appreciate how parents are made to feel welcome to volunteer in many aspects of the classrooms and school as a whole. KES is the best!

I was not pleased at all with this schools curriculum. My son had learning issues from Kindergarten to first grade that were not addressed even to my stressing these and continuously making conferences with his teachers to find some solution to rectify this situation. To our dismay, these issues were never taken seriously and therefore my son was held back in the first grade...I do not feel that this would have happened had the staff recognized the problem from the beginning as they are trained to do. Where the staffs demeanor is quite friendly, I don't feel that their teaching abilities are up to par.

This is a Great School to send your children to. I went to the same school that my Children go to and their Principle's Father was my principal. So there are strong community roots at this school. The Staff is fantastic, from the office to the custodians. There is true school pride at Kernersville Elementary! We are Proud to be a Raider!

Mr Fitzpatrick is a wonderful principal. The staff at Kernersville Elementary is a reflection of his enthusiasm, ethics, and values. The teachers have recognized my daughter's potential and have worked diligently to nurture her towards academic excellence, while allowing her to have fun in the process.
