The school is large and beautiful, but just the right size for the many kids attending. The extended day classes are ...  Read more

My child is in her second year at Kuss, enrolled in the Gifted & Talented program. The teachers are terrific, the curriculm outstanding, and the administration is very open to parents' ideas & suggestions. The new school building is beautiful & state of the art. We couldn't be happier with the school!

My school is truly fun and we learn a lot- i'm in 6th grade, and we are learning cell division, which is taught in High Schools. This school also contains the Gifted And Talented Education (GATE) class, which I am in, and it opens up new doors for learning.

I am shocked to learn that this school is doing so badly. I know they are underperforming but I had no idea it was so bad. My child graduated from elementary school an honor student went to this school and is doing so badly. I'm convinced it has a lot to do with their teaching style. Luckly she had ...  Read more

My kid is afraid to go there half the time because there is so much crazy stuff going on in the halls and in the classes. ...  Read more
