Excellent School!! Principal and teachers genuinely care for the students. New kids are made to feel very welcomed!

Small class sizes and well-qualified teachers make for effective learning at the school. Teachers offer tutoring and enrichment programs throughout the day for kids to catch up or revise lessons.


Develops character: Strongly disagree

The knighting program is an excellent tool for creating honesty and integrity among students to include the Self Manager program which creates a sense of accountability and responsibility as well!

Develops character: Strongly agree

The self manager program and the Knighting ceremonies really encouraged my daughter to do her best daily so that she could live up to the high expectations for good character.

Kendall Elementary and the teachers my daughter had over the last 6 years certainly prepared her well for middle school. Ms. Bersett is truly missed. We were always very impressed with her joy and love for her students at Kendall.

I have had all my children go through this school and there is not one teacher that we have had that has not given 100% to their craft. Every teacher has been extremely loving, professional and experienced. My eldest went to Harvard this past summer and plans to go to Rice next year. I feel they have prepared my children for all aspects of their future and are spot on when it comes to a healthy learning environment.

Teachers at this school are caring and committed to preparing the students for the future. Teachers work long hours preparing- arriving early, staying late, and, if you drive by on weekends, there are always several cars in front of this school because teachers are even working on Saturday and Sunday. So many behind the scenes hours of which most in the community have no knowledge. A large percentage of great parents are involved in the school- fund raising, helping teachers, etc. The students are mostly well-behaved (teaching manners and respect start at home) and although there are some issues between students, they are typical of what occurs with the age group. The new administration is excellent and involved. Not sure where the parent who previously posted got their information, but drugs are not a problem at Kendall. I can't say enough abut the wonderful teachers here who bend over backwards to help students and each other. It is a family. Not perfect, but doing all they can to make a difference for their students.

Great teachers, great administration and a wonderful dual language program! Our two sons have been in the dual language program from the very beginning and we are so excited about the results and our son's Spanish fluency is incredible! Great school and an outstanding district!

We have been disillusioned in our 2+ years at Kendall Elementary School. Things seemed to start great - a new to the school teacher who was eager and versatile as well as an open PTO and even lots of easily made friends for the children. Since then we have had indifferent teachers but mostly it is the TAKS focus that has such a negative effect on the school. The principal Mrs. Williams focuses on TAKS - daily announcements, letters to parents the whole campaign. Problem with this for us is that our children don't need TAKS help. They are above grade level and hence abandoned in terms of curriculm. GT certification is a fraud that was perpetrated on us.
