9 Parent Reviews for Kempsville Middle School

The staff has been very helpful in helping my daughter transition from elementary. Despite the whole experience being overwhelming, we are finding that the staff is on top of everything and working to make her days go as smoothly as possible. I would agree that the leadership of KMS is outstanding.

There isn't much to crow about this school. I went to it and the teachers are average, the leadership is average, and there aren't any challenging academic programmes.

I become more and more impressed with the teachers and the principal. Leadership is tremendous since Dr. Smith came. Teacher /Parent / student involvement is top notch and their reaching out to the community with movie night was wonderful. I love KMS more and more.

While there are some good teachers at this school, there are some that should find another profession. Sixth grade is such a transition for these 11 yr olds, and it is very hard to have teachers striving to fail them. There is no understanding or compassion. The children are allowed no excuses.

*While this school is fully accrediated, when you read the report it's not great news. African American boys are falling short; more of them fail SOL's than pass. I don't know if it's lack of interest by their parents, or just apathy toward this state test. *The principal is effective in discipline ...  Read more
