  • Major DisappointmentParent 08/28/2019
    The Principal is not a man of this word and has become overly pompous and egotistical in the false belief that the school has grown solely by his doing. Academics and discipline are both immensely inadequate! Textbooks are over 10 years old. No technologically advanced form of communication for keeping up with grades or assignments daily. Kids are also not introduced to modern programs such as Google Classroom nor do they have daily exposure to computers. Claim to be in the “top 10% of Christian Schools in the nation” but they do not reference who ranked them and I have never been able to find proof to back up this claim. Extreme bullying goes on here daily and it is not dealt with properly. There were several incidents where my children were in a dangerous environment / situation because of the school’s lack of control. Would not recommend going to KDS for transitioning to Westminster because these behavioral issues are well known and many 6th grade students from KDS have been denied at Westminster!
