Do not send your child there if he or she had special needs/adhd etc the principal is very passive aggressive,does not care about the child's needs only about herself and her giant ego.She is not a nice person and is very manipulative!!! It's her way or your child is out.Yes there is the disabilities act but she finds ways around it and while my child attended that school she only pushes for your child to be on medication because she doesn't want to deal with them.Move else where if you can..hopefully they will replace her asap..good luck!!

I am so thrilled to be at Kutz. It is a school that takes a lot of pride in itself from the teachers to admin to parents and kids and custodial staff. Also, the teachers and admin are proactive when it comes to problems and are big on communication with the parents and child. They go above and beyond! I LOVE Kutz and am sad to be gone in 2 years when my son graduates.

One of my favorite elementary schools in central bucks. Very nice hallways, newly rennovated library, and a newer gym. It is only on 1 floor, though. The biggest school in CB is like 100x bigger than Kutz. Bridge Valley. Bridge Valley has 2 floors, a basement, elevators, and even security cameras!!! Kutz has a lot of friendly teachers, along with some cranky, evil teachers! The art teacher makes the school feel friendlier, and the librarian encourages kids to read, read, read!

My husband and I were torn between Kutz and Catholic school for kindergarten, predominantly because Catholic was full day but we were wondering if the classes might be smaller or more personal. We found that the Catholic school classes were actually larger (and growing because of school closings) and the technology and support staff were more limited. A year later we are so happy to have chosen Kutz. The teacher was so encouraging of our daughter who is VERY shy and gave her the amount of praise and support she needed. The parents in the class were very involved and the teacher ALWAYS encouraged us to help out in the class every day, any day. The doors are never closed to parents. There were two support staff persons in the classroom too, which benefitted ALL students in the class. I am marvelled by just how much she has learned in one year. My friend who did private kindergarten hears what I share about our class and is in awe. They've done individual presentations about a career interest to their classmates, have parents come in to talk about their careers, Big Cheese day, writing/journaling every single day, books home every day, but it's always fun.

We have been at Kutz for 3 years and love it! The principal is caring and listens. And while we may have had an issue with a teacher or two, problems are addressed right away1 We had a potential bully issue and the counselor and teacher were involved immediately and an intervention was set up between my son and the student to see how they could work it out. I was quite impressed. Many teachers are right on with email and respond daily, which I love that way of communication. Some teachers have let me know if problems before I was even aware and talking with me about solutions. My son is very happy overall and so are we! The school's Home & School Assoc is VERY active and there are tons of activities always going on to be involved in - kids and parents. I was leery going to public school after private but cannot say enough good things about Kutz, its staff and its community! It is caring and nurturing. My son is thriving in this school!

It is true that there are a few bad teachers at this school, as there are at many. Good luck to anyone trying to raise a classroom or teacher concern with the principal or "support" staff, as their practice is to close ranks, tune out and place the blame elsewhere, even if it means the child suffers. On separate note, standardized testing is all-important and a child's individual needs and potential are of less importance than their ability to test well.

The math teacher in 6th grade doesn't seem to like to teach. He reviews the work and when the students try to ask questions he either yells at them or tells them he already went over it. I agree that he doesn't get them ready enough for middle school ready math student. The 5th grade math teacher is very good, though.

The teachers here don't teach math very well in 6th grade. They seem to llack the procees of turning a elementary school kid into a middle school ready kid. The afterschol activities are limited. Not that great, could be better

This is a school where if your child fits in and is not bullied, you won't have any problems. The principal is very stubborn and very authoritarian. If your child is bullied, you might want to sell your house and move to a different school zone like we did. Have heard both positive and negative from lots of other parents. Again, if you are passive and don't care if you get 'patted on the head' regarding your concerns, this school might suffice for you.
