This school is good. My three older kids have gone there and one is there now. He has English with Mr Jhanke who is his favorite teacher ever. The old principal was fine, but the new one is really a nice person to parents. I have heard he is horrible to the teachers and they have too much too do that keeps them from teaching. The vice principals are good too but my kids are and were never in trouble. I do think they need to do more to stop teaching to the test. There aren't a lot of teachers who explain things in class to relate to the job world. Its silly that my son's English teacher is the only one who ever does that. The uniforms are silly, too, since every teacher lets kids get away with different things and the wealthy kids always wear things out of uniform anyway since most of their teachers dont care. Other than that, I am happy with Kerr.
My son has had a great experience at Kerr Middle School. The teachers have been very good about communicating with parents so we know what is going on.
Kerr Middle School is terrific! My daughter loves it. She came home raving about the pep rally. The teachers seem to really care about how she does. I finally know what is going on in her classes on a daily basis.
I received a call last night from son's school. It stated that they were changing his advisory to help him with his math skills. Apparently they tested all the students and determined areas that each student need help on. Wow, I have been a parent at Kerr for several years and all they use to do was help with homework before or after school. Advisory use to be a joke, but they change the schedule and are using this time wisely. Great job math teachers! I'm glad that the math teachers are really taking an individual look at my child.
My 6th grade son absolutely loves middle school. He especially likes working on something called a Chrome Book. It is some sort of computer thing. Kerr is doing great things.
I want to thank the principal of KMS. He goes out of his way to help all students. He helped my son the other day open his locker. He also walked him to class to make sure he was not counted tardy. We are lucky to have him.
My principal came into my Texas History class today and pretended he was the King of Spain. He was so funny. I love Mrs. Seamster. 7th grade is awesome!!!
I am an eighth grade parent and have had doubts about Kerr. However, last year and this year especially have been terrific! Lots of communication! Athletics teams doing well and my daughter loves her teachers. The new principal is awesome!
We just moved here and our kid loves this school. We have been very pleased with every aspect of the school, the kids, the admin and teachers. So happy to have our son here!
We had a great Meet the Teacher night last night!!!! My 7th grader seems excited about who his teachers are. It was a little crazy but the staff worked very hard and were very nice!!! This school seems to have a great culture!
this is a amazing school my kid loves it from the teachers to the school dances to relay for life in the spring there is hardly any bulling problems and everybody is really good friends with everybody
Teachers that aren't doing their jobs well are the only ones that are scared of our principal.
Kerr is decent but the last parent hit the nail on the head. One of my daughter's teachers seems genuinely afraid of the principal. We've heard stories about him and seen him in action. Disappointed to say the least!
I moved in from abroad in 2010. Considering that moving from one environment to another is usually hard for growns ups, you can imagine how it is for a 6th grader. I just want to say that the love and dedication shown by the teacher helped my kid to make it thru. I can say that Nick Kerr School did a positive impact to our lives during this crucial moment of our lifes.
