This school is awful. All the students grade 5 and up do is talk trash about each other. It doesn't matter if you've known that person since Kindergarten, they will still stab you in the back. I left the school, but before, I was bullied by my 'friends', who can't even say the truth of whether or not ...  Read more

Horrible administration, pretty good teachers. The administration is rude, unprofessional and disrespectful to parents, kids and teachers. I have heard from many that the teachers at the school do not feel supported and reflects on student progress. A very negative environment.

My children are current (2014) students. I do not like the school. My children want to transfer. Most of the teachers pick on students. One teacher made fun of a little boys name in front of the whole classroom. Teachers hit children. I attended an activity at the end of the school year and a group ...  Read more

This school is brutal. The kids are terrible. The arts programs are not that great (it's a fine arts school). There is talk about drugs, guns, fights, and all sorts of drama. I am a former student who transferred because of all this bullying and abuse that was going on with me and some other girls.

I think Kipling School teachers should go bak to school and learn more about the characteristic of students with special needs. So they wont make mistakes when providing them with an appropriate education.

Kipling is one of the few schools that have a dance program. I love the dance program and could not be happier with the teacher. She does a great job with the kids and my child loves attending dance class. It is her favorite part of the day. I feel that the fine arts setting that this school ...  Read more
