Not a good school specially because of the principal. Not idea who choose her for the tittle. Some of the teacher are a bullying the student instead of teaching them how to obtain a Better future. Art teacher is great!

This school is unbelievable! If you want memories of Mother/Son or Father/Daughter events. Stay away from having your child attend this school. I have no option, because we cannot sell our home. Kent Heights was my option for my kids, but unfortunately, I was not on that side for the kids to attend. Principal is lacking todays' technology. School can definitely do better with the correct leadership!

The principal has a severe issue with acting as though she's better than any parent/teacher who comes foward with a problem. She's more concerned with her image than with the well being of students. My daughter and many others in her class were being assaulted severely by a young boy and the principal absolutely refused to do anything about it. Pure disgrace. What happened to zero tolerance??

Principal is a lackey for anyone who has a problem. Will not back up decisions of others in educational team if decisions are not nice to hear for parents. School is unable to provide basic needs for services to be provided effectively.

I went there for elementary school and I loved it! It was so much fun and the teachers are great, and the principal works hard to make the school a better place!
