Amount of homework: Neutral

My daughter is in kindergarten and there's no real homework, per se. They bring sight words home to study at their pace, and they bring a book home to practice reading. There is no written homework, though.

We moved mid semester from Ft. Gordon to Ft. Belvoir and my daughter was so nervous starting a new school. She was placed in Mrs. Crowley's kindergarten class and was immediately welcomed by everyone. Nancy at the front office was so welcoming and friendly and did a wonderful job of explaining everything to us, and to my daughter. The students all seem very happy and playful. At the end of my daughter's first day, she said she loved her new school and says she is so happy we are here.

This school is a great neighborhood school! Teachers and parents are very active and the school is well run, including the before/after school program. My son has learned so much in Kindergarten, I'm amazed. Every school function has been well run and well attended. Great to see an environment where teachers, parents and students attend after school events!!

Great teachers who really care about the child's development and awesome programs

We moved to Burke from Prince William County so I have something local and within state to compare to. KP is an awful school. No sense of community. No fun arts, plays, dance, concerts, etc. My older son's 2nd grade teacher last year was horrible. My other son's 1st grade teacher was really good but, she could only be so good given the awful school environment. Super depressing to transfer from a pretty normal school to Kings Park.


Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree


- a
They don't do anything formally to promote a culture of "nice kids".

Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
The principle is not very connected with most parents (maybe the PTA?). The vice principle is strange.

Develops character: Strongly disagree

My children were never exposed to bullying and mean kids until we moved to this school. It was heartbreaking to see this become part of their life. The bus ride is especially rough. Nice bus driver but, she needs to drive the bus safely and can't be expected to also monitor the behavior of the 90 young kids riding her bus.


Handles bullying effectively: Neutral


- a
I haven't encountered any problems with this, but with how quickly and effectively the school has responded to other situations, I would imagine they do a good job of handling bullying.

Supports LD students: Strongly agree


- a
I've notice strong support for kids who need a little extra help.
