In response to one review, Kimball doesn't have the technology that some of the DISD schools have; that is not always controlled by the school. There is access to "Parent Portal" by all DISD schools, giving online access to assignments, grades, tardies, and absences. There are two ways to contact teachers on the site. Parents can even be notified automatically if grades go above or below averages input by the parent and sent by e-mail or text. Parents can sign up at the school or return a waiver so the information for login can be given the the student. There is more information at www.dallasisd.org. There is information about SAT and ACT with Education is Freedom, led by Ms. Ali. There is information about that organization at www.dallasisd.org/kimball. Parents are welcome to visit the school and/or classes, Education is Freedom, sign up for Parent Portal, PTSA Meetings, Saturday tutoring sessions, sports events, volunteering. Check out the school website, more information will be added as it becomes available.

Kimball is behind in Technology big time! Most schools have student parent access where you can see their assignments, progress and grades. It's like they DON"T want you to see what's happening. My job teacher's emails are listed on the website with extensions. One female gives stacks of ridiculous work to prove what? Kimball has a caveman system- call the front office, tell your private message, she puts a note in the teachers' box. You won't get a call back. I have never received information for my senior on ACT or SAT information via letter or mass callings. I know the counselors are busy but what are they there for? Most HS school counselors over help seniors. Alsono info about getting a cap and gown. What will he wear? They need to add more programs and classes that match other prominent high schools. Something to boost the morale and enrich young men to deter trouble. The girls need to stop throwing their lives away getting pregnant. I have to pass by so many young girls hugged up on boys. Where are the programs and speakers??? DAEP is not the answer-change their outlook on life. Cussin them is not workin. Yeah Kimball Knights! One more year and I am outta here! Yeah!

I graduated from Kimball in 1989; however I have a few cousins that go to this school; although it has changed a bit since I've been there, I understand that it is still a great school and lots of activities.

Kimball High is a good high school...their are teachers who cares about the student education and tries to do their best to make sure that if a child...hear me...wants to learn they can. The parent and the teacher has to work close together with their children teachers as we do.

I do believe that Kimball has definitely seen better days, but as a student (class of 2010) , I am an eyewitness to the fact that students and teachers alike are stepping up their game, and test scores are improving. Class participation is becoming more common, and the academic competiton is increasing, especially in the junior class.

Hi, I am the C.O.O. class officer of the graduated class of 2008. I must say kimball isnt a bad school at all. Most people who are speaking negative about this school are the ones who are on the outside looking in. I am a living testimony that kimball has made and will continue to make great students. Yea we all know that all schools are going to have it's ups and downs cause not all are perfect. Kimball have made me a better person all around. I attended kimball my 11th grade year, coming from a small school from east texas. I must say it was different.But I must say after meeting new people and getting the encouragment from the staff and student body, I was a class officer, 1st runner up Mr.Kimball, Varsity Football player, a TAFE member and more. KEEP UP THE HARD WORK KNIGHTS!

Kimball has had its ups and downs but over 50 years has turned out outstanding civic, athletic, societal and entertainment leaders. The school has finally had a makeover and has outstanding new leadership in Danny Stigers. As a member of the Board of Governors of Kimball Alumni Association, we are 22,000 alumni that are proud of the efforts of all the teachers and staff, who we find are very engaged in student life. We are dedicated to raising funds and the quality of student education. Our scholarship program is ongoing and we support many worthwhile projects at the school which are generated by concerned teachers, coaches and staff. As a member of the first graduating class in 1960, I am very proud of the accomplishments of my alma mater. Ron Sills

Kimball High School needs a serious make-over. The morale of the school is low and it is affecting the quality of education that the students receive.

I am disappointed in Kimball, it's leadership seems to have fallen by the wayside. I see children walking the halls and the assistant principles only wish to talk to you when there is a problem. There is no support for the child or the parent.

I have a (Junior) 11th grade student attending Kimball, I have gone on several occasions to the attendance office because the attendance records are not done correctly and I have to go down to school and look into their mistakes, I am always greeted with an attitude that makes me feel unwelcomed as a parent. Other staff have given me the same treatment, makes me think the school has an ongoing problem in greeting and treating people respectfuly. Teachers at parent conference were very nice and intrested in disscusing my childs grades and opportunities in this school. I think the school is run down, lot's of improvements need to be made. And there needs to be more encouragement throughout the school for the children to continue enyoing to attend school and look forward to graduate. Maintenance is a must at the restrooms!

I currently attend Kimball as a freshman. The moral of the students needs to be boosted. Then and only then will Kimball see real change. I feel that the principal is focused to much on test scores and how the school ranks comparatively. His concern really doesn't lie with the students who need the most help.
