My son who is hard of hearing and has Down Syndroms has been attending Kendall since he was about 5 months old. They have an incredible team of loving and supportive teachers who work very closely with the parents to address each individual student's needs. Our child is now in his 1st year of full-day preschool and we receive daily email updates on the classroom activities for the day and individual reports about our son, not to mention, a newsletter every Friday and home visits to work with his teacher on his progress. For student's with special needs, they are also able to provide auditory sevices, speech, occupational and physical therapy. We love it here and truely feel that they love us!!!

More information: What GreatSchools fails to mention is that Kendall serves children who are deaf, hard of hearing- thus the mention of 'special education'; students use hearing aids, cochlear implants or nothing. American Sign Language is used for instruction; individual and group services include speech, audiology, physical therapy, counseling, plus more that I may not be aware of. Transportation services is provided if pick-up/drop-off is within 15 miles (of the school or the Capitol Building, I'm not sure). Please visit the school if you are considering placement for your Deaf or Hard of Hearing child.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
