After moving from Nashville, I sent my 3-year-old son here for a year of preschool. I was so unhappy with the school, I considered pulling him out after Christmas. The first day of school, we were told that parents are not allowed to speak to the teacher at drop-off time, because it might be upsetting

There were no progress notes sent home, and all communication with his teacher was through email. I never knew what was going on, unless I learned it from my son himself. I am not a helicopter parent by any means, but I do like to feel included in my child's life, and KCS made me feel unwelcome and unimportant. We have moved to Tate's this year, and even though school has barely started, I could not be more impressed with them. My husband and I were both raised in private schools, but I would send my children to public school before I ever set foot in that place again. Read less

First and foremost, I would like to say, there are some folks currently on staff at KCS that are an exception to the statements below, However, At this point, I would have to respectfully decline to send my child for another year at KCS, If You have a preschool-8th grade student with little or limited
... Read more interest in athletics, you may be Happy with this organization, However if High School is your need, I would have to decline to recommend this organization, on multiple levels, I was/am less than pleased with the academic resources employed by the school, the lack of experience and ability with many, but certainly not all, of the high school educational staff, the lack of guidance and clarity in academic issues, basically if you child is not already an A/B student the likelihood is he/she will be left to their own, the support was academic support is spotty at best. With the failed football program, and future of the athletic program now at a virtual standstill, unless your child s interest is solely academic in nature, and he/she, is a natural born student, I would have to recommend you search further.

This school has seen some radical changes since a year ago with the arrival of a new principal and other office staff. We ended up pulling our son out this year due to the unfriendly atmosphere and the acceptance of some students with major behavior problems. It is not worth paying that much money.
