I am a Grandmother, of Madeline , the Children are so much better acting than children in neighboring Kaufman Schools Which makes learning easier , no complaints so far, i like how if a student is doing poorly they can stay after school a couple of days a week & bring up grade

Communication between teachers and parents is severely lacking. Emails to the teachers are returned promptly by a couple, others never get returned. The so-called planner should not be a replacement for true communication. The lack of additional assistance for children is a real issue. Special education programs and materials have be cut, or merged into what is called inclusion, these students are not getting the additional assistance they need. Schools have declined over the last several years. Parental involvement is a few parents controlled by the administration.

K-3rd was great in Primary school. The Intermediate is horrible. There is little to no communication with parents. The kids are supposed to relay all information via a spiral planner. I have no idea when things are due or even what some paper work is that comes home. When I email the teachers, the responses really don't say much other than "I have a lot of students and the planner is the best way we know how to communicate with parents." Seriously!! In the emails, the teachers are mis-spelling words!!! All I can think is, YOU are teaching MY child!!!!! We want to move so bad to get away from this school.

New principal who is not a micro-manager who's leadership style is very collaborative with teachers and school staff. Discipline has been helped by the school's involvement in the Positive Behavior Supports Initiative. Teachers are good but hampered by low pay and little budget resources. The After School program gives students opportunities to continue learning in a fun and exciting way. I believe Kemp Intermediate has a very positive atmosphere and learning environment.

School district is hampered by principal being a Micro manager and not allowing teachers to do their job. Good teachers but very poor management.

Kemp - could be a great place to go to school, but with the current administration it isn't. There is no discipline what so ever at the intermediate level. The kids at Kemp deserve better.
