We are having a very good experience at Kester. Enrolled in the Magnet program and our children are flourishing with all of the "extras" that used to be part of just the regular program before budget cuts.

What a joke. I don't know which group is worse, the unresponsive and negligent administration, the negligent staff, or the negligent parents. Our 2 kids are super bright since we're heavily involved with our children and engage with them constantly. We only take them to Kester because it's the lesser ...  Read more

So far, I have had horrible experiences with the school administrative staff, and my child hasn't even enrolled there yet. They're extremely unresponsive and gave me the run around for 2 months regarding an inquiry I had concerning an assessment I requested. I really hope this changes by the time the ...  Read more
