Kimball Elem is an excellent school. We have over 100 years in teaching experience with our teachers. Everyone is caring, understanding, and well educated.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted August 5, 2007

Kimball Elementary does it's greatest to see that the students succeed in their learning. The teachers go the extra steps to make sure that no child is left behind, and if they are it is because that child chooses well to do so. Like my child who will now repeat the 2nd grade cause he simple would not do his work. His teacher and other staff done everything possible for my child, now he is learning if he only listened. The principal of KES is really great. Honest and concerned about the education of each child.
