Our son is now entering his third year at Kenwood. He's had his share of discispline issues, and his teachers and principal have been our allies in helping to work through 'growing up'. We love the school and intend to stay.

We have two children who attend this wonderful school. The teachers are dedicated, compassionate, and wonderful. Parents are very involved. It is a very nurturing environment and our kids love going to school.

My son attended 1st-3rd grade here and just loved it. The principal, Terry Factor, was very involved and the special programs were priceless. Where else would you get a Taiko drumming residency? The school play was a blast and the teachers are great. We loved this school!
