Some of the kids know me as Ms. Jenny. I am a program specialist for Boys and Girls Club at KMS. From what I heard, the Boys and Girls Club program at KMS is the best out of South Puget Sound Area because of this school. They have great kids who are active and love to be a part of the programs we offer and most importantly there is a strong support system from the staff and parents. The school has always welcomed us (BGC) with open hands because they want their kids to succeed and be active. We have an Island Breeze Dance club and the staff has always supported the children by having them perform at their assemblies. The principal and vice principal are great people and I am very fortunate to be working at this site. With the limited resources and funds that this school has, they always try to create opportunities for the students to take part in. This $5,000 would definitely make a big difference for these kids.
Hey everyone I'm a girl who went to KMS for part of 6th grade and then the rest of my middle school career was there at KMS and I honestly got to say despite some drama that this school has, actually every school has drama some point and time, but anyways I LOVE THIS SCHOOL. I had a really great time there all the field trips and funrasing also there amazing chior and band programs are were very great I LOVED CHIOR AND MY FRIENDS LOVED BAND TONS we were a bunch of Chior Nerds and Band Geeks, but that's just the way we rule. Also the pep assemeblys are tons of fun. The teachers are very caring and kind they will let you learn if you behave and really care about your grades and just focus yourself. The teachers they'll teach you very important life long lessons that you'll remember.
I and my sister are graduates of Keithley Middle School and I feel this is by far one of the best middle schools in the Tacoma Area. The student dicipline is very effective. The teachers are great. They understand, listen and relate to the students everyway possible. The principle is friendly and interacts with the students. Like a principle should. I am very happy to have attended Keithley Middle School. Keep up the great work staff.
Keithley Middle School has great teachers and a caring administrative and classified staff. The staff places the needs of students first. The extra curricular sports program is great and is set in the Seamount Athletic League.
This school has been going through curriculum adoptions for every subject level for several years. My daughter adjusted well to the school and the staff seem friendly enough. The Make Your Day discipline program is very different for me to understand, but seems to work for the students and staff.
If the parents are not directly involved, The system at this school does not care about the child.
Solid program balancing social skills, interviewing techniques, career planning and basic education. No orchestra/only band. Sports programs available. Solid, helpful office staff, cousnelors and the teachers are positive, upbeat and reinforce the children's development and education. Advanced Placement programs available as well. Regular parent conferences and updates.
This is our second child that is going through this school. And the experience has been consistent with our first one. We find the staff and counselors are very helpful and friendly, the honors program is excellent. We lament the fact that this program is not the standard for our overall public school system. The band program is so good it has always been an important part on the decision to send our children to this school.
