This is my second year teaching at Ketcham and I love it! We have a wonderful leadership team and a staff that supports each other. Our new building looks amazing and is so bright and cozy! My students love reading in our library by the new windows and enjoy exploring their new classroom. Ketcham is a place that seeks to partner with parents to promote student growth!

The "new" Ketcham has had a great start to the school year! Teachers, parents, and students are all eager to get a fresh start. We have a new leadership initiative, a parent center with computers and meeting space for parents, and brand new classrooms thanks to a modernization this summer. All of our classrooms have SmartBoards, and students have access to laptops to support instruction. This is a great place for children to learn!!

The new school has brought forth a new and improved level of commitment from teachers, students and parents to ensure that students are developed appropriately academically and socially. All the classrooms have new technology and other materials that are helping the students learn while they are entertained. This is a great place for anyone to learn!

My child has received an amazing education at Ketcham. Not only were her academic needs met, but her social and emotional needs were addressed as well. I was pleased with the staff every time I interacted with them. They were professional and accommodating and went above and beyond to ensure that I was satisfied with the entire education process. I would not hesitate to refer Ketcham to friends and family.

This school has shown many improvements. The staff there really care about children and the new principal is working hard to turn it around. So far, so good.

I am so very disapointed in this school for so many reasons. Al students, especially these students deserve so much more. There is such a lack or professionalism and quality in thi school its sickening. I do not even know where to start to improve this school, but it seems as though these children have been forgotten.
