We love Kiefer Schools...sadly, though, there is no participation in extra-curricular events by the upperclass administration. Well, unless it's a high school sport. For instance, our high school band and winterguard won numerous awards this year, and at the band banquet there was no one there...no superintendant, no principal. One board member was there since his daughter is in the band. I guess the band doesn't bring enough accolades or money to the school system. Sad for a school who needs all the kudos it can get.
I have a 9th grader that transferred in from a nearby larger school, and she absolutely loves kiefer! it's 8 minutes from our house versus the 2 minutes for the local school but she is so much happier and never tries to get out of going. Every one I have spoke to at the school is very friendly and very helpful.
As a parent of two high school students transferring in, I would have to say Kiefer is a good school if your students are involved in marching band or sports...if your student is involved in other music courses, there are none, and their list of 'electives' is extremely abbreviated...my kids have taken art for two years for elective credits...the teachers and staff are great, but I am sorely disappointed in the lack of variety for education...
