Principal is heavy handed, Teachers sincerely try to prepare their students for standardized tests, but the expectations of administration is unreasonable.

Awesome, caring school. I have a long term relationship with this school and have had good and bad situations in both academics and behavior. The bad ones were handled expeditiously and fairly. The good outweigh the bad 100 fold. Accolades to a Principal and staff who make it happen even when the spotlight is not on. To them every day is another chance to make a positive change in the life of a child(ren). Thank you.

I would just like to say that Kimball is an excellent school. If your child has the priviledge of attending Kimball elementary school then he or she is truly blessed. I was very honored to have had the opportunity to be Ms. W. Smith's teacher's assistant and to work with an awesome principal as Ms. Miller. Your child/children will truly thrive and reach their full potential. You couldn't ask for a more loving, nurturing and professional environment all in one. Just enter the school and you will see what I mean. Mrs. LaJuan Dugger

Ms. Miller is a great principal to me, and I just met her this year. My daughter just started K and she made me feel safe to leave my child. Her teacher Ms. W. Smith loves her students and is passionate about education. Thank you! Keep Up the Good Work Kimball!

TZhis school, like most in the area is ncredibly deficient in servingthe needs of our children. It starts with the administration down. What is focused on is test scores only and not how to really teach children to think. The school discipline systems are very negative and punitive instead of focusing on the positive.

Kimball has incredible teachers and staff. The principal is no non-sense yet compassionate.

Kimball is a good school the principle and counselors work with the students and teachers. they have afterschool programs for the kids such as baseball, tennis, dance, and tutoring. There is a nice computer lab and music room. The PTA is good and the school had a really good holiday program in winter of 05. all in all a good school. Pat
