How can people with no college degrees help anyone toward higher education? Maybe if they stopped "hustling" children, get an actual curriculum and take everyone out of ONE big room they can help the community.............RIGHT NOW Its too much dysfunction.
I happened to pick up my friends kids ,from school one day .The 1st thing I noticed was they had no books. Me being a career Teacher I just thought they were joking.Until they told me they don't use Pencils,paper, or books. HOW COULD THAT BE? Will these students be able to hang with other Public School Students on a Statewide basis. This school is doing a Disservice at this time; I do see a Great Need for Improvement in All Areas; especially from the Top Down...
This is the only school that I found my two year old daughter to like! Everywhere else she was constantly falling out, which would be VERY heartbreaking for me to leave her and go to work. Mama Maja and her team took a special interest and partnered with me to help with tantrums/falling out! As a team with POSITIVE reinforcement I am PROUD to say that MY BABY DOES NOT THROW TANTRUMS ANYMORE!! :-) She is thriving and this place is MORE LIKE FAMILY than a daycare. I LOVE THIS PLACE! IT IS TRULY A BLESSING!!
I really love the family oriented setting that focuses on education and good character. The learning atmosphere is a very positive and a pleasant setting. They truly care about their students. My son comes home at tells us the great things he learns on a daily basis. My son is really hey he found Kuumba. I highly recommend.
Kuumba Learning Center develops the artist and the scholar! We love this school, it is not cookie cutter, and understands learning should interest and challenge the child and enhance their creativity. Our Son was in public school, and we are so happy we pulled him out and put him in Kuumba!
I thank Kuumba Learning Center for giving me the opportunity to work there they are working everyday to make sure their staff and children are satisfied. Their always trying to do more for the children I hope they get the help they deserve and need to go further.
Kummba is a great school because we explore the african philosophy. I have learned so much about history, forgein languages like French, Spanish, and African languages. Kuumba has a vegan diet witch has amazing food. I've been attending Kuumba for a long time and the past years has been out standing. All of the staff are very loving and generous. They teach us the Importance of education, and the value of life. The school expects an educational greatness for all their students. I love Kuumba
The school environment at Kuumba is peaceful and calm for a learner. I've experienced school environments in the past where the classroom was full of chaos most of the time. I'm more motivated now to be an excellent student. The teachers always encourage us to do our best and strive for excellence. I really enjoy the education the teachers provide me. As an African-American male I am also taught that I must be committed and be obligated to my people and community to do my best. I think when we as kids get older we will take on the knowledge they teach us to pass on to our own kids/children.

Kuumba Learning Center (KLC) gave my both of my daughters their strong academic foundation. They have both been honor roll (A) students their entire academic careers. Diamond graduated from Bowie High School in 2012 with a 4.275 GPA in the top 5% of her class. She was accepted into her dream college, Hampton University (HU). She received an academic scholarship from HU and several local scholarships totaling $60,000.00. Diamond is majoring in Broadcast Journalism and is currently doing the weather for HU's radio station WHOV 88.1. My daughter Aja graduated from Bowie High School in 2013 with a 4.275 GPA in the top 5% of her class. She was accepted into the college of her choice, Old Dominion University. She received an academic grant from Old Dominion University and several local scholarships totaling $20,000.00. Aja is majoring in Fashion Merchandising and will be the CEO an upscale boutique catering to tall women. KLC has nontraditional teaching methods. They do not allow a child s age to determine the academic challenges that they are given. The meals were nutritional, I breastfed both of my girls and KLC helped me to continue this long after returning to work.
Kuumba Learning Center is a year around, non-traditional school with a goal of developing student s as scholars and artists. At Kuumba, a brain-based learning approach is used to allow the students to connect learning to the world around them. Kuumba Learning Center follows the Common Core Standards. Varies curriculums are used interchangeably to provide students with the skills necessary to compete globally. The arts are also used to stimulate and encourage learning as the student matriculate through the rigorous curriculum. If you are looking for a small school that sets no limits on learning, Kuumba Learning Center is the school for you.
Kuumba Learning Center provides a unique blend of cultural and academic experiences. There is a structured/disciplined atmosphere that does not come at the cost of a family centered approach. I honestly think that the instructors and administrators genuinely care about their students and SE DC as a whole.
Kuumba is a very family oriented place. My daughter was easily taken in as a part of the Kuumba family. At first I wasn't sure if my daughter would be able to adjust to the vegan diet. But she made an easy transition into the diet and she just loves the vegan food! As far the education given to my daughter I just love it the teachers they have so much patience in working with my daughter. Kuumba also has programs for parents. I am currently enrolled in the parent fitness boot camp. I just love how they educate and embrace the student and the parent. I really appreciate Kuumba Learning Center. If you want the best for you child send them to Kuumba Learning Center!!!
This is the best school ever! It is like it's just made for my child. It's unique. My child enjoys coming to school NOW and she actually learns a lot about her history, how to exercise and to eat properly, and things that she wouldn't really learn at other schools. The school is so good that I have recommended other family members to attend. I love Kuumba learning center!
As viewing Kummba's site I am greatly appreciative of the work that they are doing with our children. As a grandmother I see the great work that they have done with grandson. He only 2years old and when he comes home from Kuumba he grabs books to read. He's doing really well with alphabet recognition and his motor skills. I would like to see Kuumba continue to do great work in the future. I also work for a school system I know how important it is for your children to have a head start.
I like Kuumba because of the principals they follow, like having a vegan diet and having an active lifestyle and healthy eating habits. Kuumba has a great school community that is respectful of others and parents. The kids are very respectful as well. The students learn a lot and I can see a great change in my child's development. I would recommend Kuumba to any parent looking for a school that really excels in early childhood development.
Kuumba is a great school for young Black kids. This is great opportunity for young Black kids to get a good start at learning.
I am very pleased with this school. My child's language has expanded greatly and has become very articulate for such a young age. He is learning and developing a personality and behaving well. Kuumba is a great learning experience with accredited and professional faculty and staff and has a great structured plan for each grade level. Kuumba is a great school and I would recommend it to any person looking for a unique educational experience that exposes student a wide variety of perspectives.
My school is family like with small class sizes that implement individualized learning plans. We focus on servicing the child with a wrap around approach. Core components of education include not only Language Arts but communications, character, and team building. Cross curricular is utilized daily throughout the day to expand our STEM program. Great place for no traditional learners!
This school is exceptional. The staff is superb and the learning environment is a rare and unique one. From multiple world languages to embracing African History and the Arts, Kuumba is an oasis in the world of education today.
