Two of my children attend Kulp. We moved back to PA in the middle of the school year. My children were not used to this type of school. But the staff (principal and teachers) gave them time and lots of effort. My children have been there for 3 years now and are doing great. I love the principal who knows each's child by face and name. The teachers and support staff that I ave met and worked with are all great. I am so happy that my kids attend Kulp.

Kulp is the model for elementary schools to follow. The staff is friendly, knowledgable, and more than helpful. The principal is extremely involved with the students and knows each of them by name. There is a genuine sense of caring and concern for each and every child at this school. The parents are very involved with school organizations and events, and they always welcome newcomers into the fold.

I am also a Kulp parent, and could not be happier with all aspects of the school from the staff to the curriculum. It is currently undergoing a transformation and I cannot wait to see what the new Kulp will look like when it is completed!

I am 17 years old.. I am a former kulp student. If you are considering a Kulp or your just curious about Kulp well its the best of them all. Kulp holds the greatest memories of my life. The discipline is good, not too harsh. The teachers are excellent. I love them all. The playground is amazing. Kulps athletics and other activities are awesome. The gym teachers were always encouraging kids to do some kind of sport. also the food was actually good. All of the staff-- teachers,lunch ladies, secretaries and janitors were so friendly. It truely is a perfect elementary school for any child to attend.

The results for reading, writing, science and math are displayed on GreatSchools profiles.
