The individual teachers at Kerrydale are fantastic. The school's leadership, however, is unresponsive and does not support patriotic activities. Specifically, they do not support activities aimed at veterans. There is also a number of gang-involved parents who come to the school, though this isn't the school's fault. Personally, I had a difficult time keeping my bilingual kids (English primary, taught them Spanish as well before Kindergarten) out of ESOL classes so Kerrydale could collect their federal incentive money. This also triggered Spanish language school messages. I was finally told it's just the computer doing it and they could do nothing about it. Apparently there's an uncontrollable robot at the school that they simply cannot reign in given their current level of expertise.

Kerrydale is a great school.. great communication with staff and parents. School of excellence the past few years. My xhild has gone here for 4 years now and she loves it here. I feel like Kerrydale is a part of my family.

this school is great! the teachers know how to teach very well.the also give free tutoring and summer school for kids who need it. and at the end of tutoring they give metals and have a pizza party. field day has enough activities for everyone and any parent or older brother or sister can come.

Stay away from this school. They lack parent teacher communication.My child has gone here for 6 yrs and every year I have had to deal with bulling with lack of interest from the school.

Kerrydale is a great school! The teachers care a lot about their students and do all they can to help them. There are many extracurriculars including Literary Society, Math 24 Club, Science Club, Book Club and afterschool remedial programs.

I would not recommend this school. There are a myriad of problems which include, but are not limited to a lack of leadership, limited knowledge of best practices, and inconsistent discipline.
