they have no displine system that seems to work nor are they allowed to give out any displine other than throwing up their hands to get anything done the children are out of control and know that the teachers cant do jack about anything the school should be closed or have police walking the halls and play ground at all times that they are open

SInce my child has been attending KES over the last couple of years his education has improved. He is reading more than ever. Over the last two years they have turned him onto chapter books. He is now a Gold Fin member which he loves and gets to do many positive things in the school. The PTA does a lot of fun things as well. Way to go KES! I am impressed with the recent turn for the positive as KES over the last few years.

KES has really turned around. Congratulations on making AYP! What an accomplishment. My daughters have had some WONDERFUL teachers. They have been caring and understanding. They have listened to me as a parent, which has been important to me. The principal started great recognition programs for the children, which makes them WANT to work harder. I can't wait to see what else is coming to the school.

KES has really turned around under the new principal's leadership. She is welcoming and wants the children to be successful and achieve. Improving KES in the community has been one of her priorities. Remember, I am a parent of two students at KES just like some of the others. YOU are what makes a difference in your child's education. The school is improving and it shows. The new principal has added many positive discipline programs for students and I have heard they will be starting a new bullying program this fall. KES is tops!

My children attended Kegotank Elementary School the 2010-2011 school year. The children enjoyed attending the school, but my 4th grader had some problems with a classmate at the beginning of the school year. I feel the teachers are good and keep teacher/parent communication open all year. I feel the school needs to improve on bullying/mentoring and needs to focus on a no bully policy!! I would hear about children getting picked on and the bully would ONLY get a warning!

CONTINUED: or suspending him off of the bus and from school. So far the teachers he has had have been terrible.. I am crossing my fingers that this year the teacher will be good. If there is anything I can do to make a difference in this school I will do it. I am currently researching what rights I have. IF I WAS FINANCIALLY ABLE TO MOVE TO AN AREA THAT HAD A BETTER SCHOOL I WOULD JUST TO GET MY CHILD OUT OF THIS GOD AWFUL SCHOOL.

I love KES!!! I have a nephew that attends this school and I truly believe that the teachers and the staff care about their students. Kegotank has had many people from our community come in and say that they felt very welcome while in the school. I would have to agree with Mrs.Fretts 100%!!!!

I really enjoy this school. I have two children that attend this school and they both cannot wait to get up each morning and get on the bus. With my husband being military and being deployed the school has really shown me and my family tremendous support. The staff is great and the teachers are great. I think it gets a bad reputation because it is a rural school and the funding is not there that you see in public schools in large cities.
