My daughter went to this school for Kindergarten and had the lovely experience of Mrs. D as a teacher!! A wonderful teacher my daughter loved her, her class, and enjoyed all of the spirit events and more. I had been nervous as we all are at our kids starting at a public school but I was very very happy with this school and the passion that I saw in the staff, from the cafeteria lady, to the principal and classroom teacher. My only gripe was based on budget cuts more than the school which was the lack of a nurse on location...more of a government issue than a school issue.

The teachers at Kimball are horrible. Constantly, my little sister would come home and tell me how their teachers would use her as example and publicly humilate her in front of their classmates. She's been having trouble with her schoolwork but is too afraid to ask for help because of THAT. And then we get a letter was sent home asking for money/food donations to throw a party for the teachers. I'm all about giving thanks when it's due, but in this case, thanks is the last thing I'd give!

This is a wonderful cultural mix of students and teachers--all helping to teach and learn about a lot more than subjects. It needs help.

Kimball is a warm, loving, friendly and fun environment. The PTSA is extremely involved which I think helps make this an absolutely fabulous school.

Kimball is a terrific school with a strong, supportive community, experienced dedicated teachers and high parent involvement. It is an 'open concept' school, which helps to nurture community and friendships. Kimball celebrates its racially and ethnically diverse school population and this diversity strengthens the learning atmosphere for all the students. Strong teachers, a strong principal, a strong parent-teacher association and sensible policies guarantee a safe and stimulating learning environment for students.
