Teachers and most staff are great! Front main office staff is unpleasant and rude not like the amazing teachers at all which is a good thing those attitudes displayed by those ladies are not around the kids.

Best school in Virginia Beach by far, only one that has worked with my son that has ADHD and got him to pass all his SOLs with flying colors! Staff, teachers, parents, kids, and PTA rock!

Both of my kids went to KES from K-5. They LOVED it! I loved it. The kids were all very supportive of each other, right up to graduation. It felt like a little family and I knew nearly every kid by name by the time they left.. The schools is welcoming and warm and teachers and parents are very involved in the success of the kids. This is a great school, despite the rating. Don't hesitate sending your kids here.

We are a military family and finally out of 3 states, these are the best schools my children have attended. I have been pleased with all of their teachers over the last two years. There are lots of extracurricular activities for the older kids like Student council, strings, lots of parent and PTA involvement. Buying a house in this school district was a great choice 7 years ago and remains a great choice today.

Kempsville Elementary is a wonderful school and it grieves me to read the one disgruntled parent remark. It's so not reflective of the whole. KES has a solid commited team of professional educators who successfully educate and inpsire our chidren daily. I am very pleased with this school.

Kempsville Elementary School has a fantastic group of teachers and parents who work together synergistically to develop the best education environment for the children. I am thrilled to be a part of the school and would strongly recommend Kempsville Elementary to anyone looking for a top of the line school dedicated to the development of excellent students - both academically and socially.

This school has had 3 principals in as many years. We got lucky with the last one, but the current one 2007-2008 is constantly making reference to her former school and the way that they did things. She is changing year long traditions and mediocrity. Morale among the staff is at an all time low and it is obvious. The parents do not have a voice and the school has become watered down. It is my opinion that the VA. Beach School Board does not care about the children and the parents (who pay their salaries) and they are putting in administrators who could care less too. What a shame and utter disappointment. Send your children to Birdneck where the principal cares.
