The school is amazing, the staff is dedicated and nurturing to a degree. The administration has changed, and it has changed the climate quite a bit. Mr. Carbone was an awesome leader, kept everyone happy. Mrs. Hayes and Mrs. Homen are quite a bit more aggressive and keep a keen eye on each and every teacher. It has changed the climate, making teachers more accountable, but also not as happy. Change is difficult, and I think the staff are taking deep breaths and trying their hardest to cope with the added struggles. All in all, kids are number 1, and they are trying to teach responsibility, so if you forget your book or your homework frequently, yes, their are consequences, and I think that is a great thing!!

Not only is KMS clean with state-of-the-art facilities but it also has some of the best teaching staff with programs that benefit all levels of learning.

This is the first year for our son and he loves the teachers, the opportunities, and the sense of guided independence. We are very impressed with the quality and dedication of the faculty and administration at KMS.

I'm not sure how the parent below can make such a blanket statement. Both my sons attended KMS and one recently graduated, and I never found a lack of emphathy. Nearly all the teachers wer fantastic (we are dealing with humans here). Great school.

The quality of academic programs is excellent as is the quality of most of the teachers. The one thing that needs to be improved, however, is teacher empathy. The students do not need to be treated in a harsh way because they forgot a book, or an assignment on occassion.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Rhode Island used the New England Common Assessment Program (NECAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in reading and math, in grades 5, 8 and 11 in writing, and in grades 4, 8 and 11 in science. GreatSchools ratings currently reflect 2013 test data; the ratings will be updated when the latest NECAP science data is made public and available in the summer of 2014. The NECAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Rhode Island. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
