KMS has been a great school for my kids. I have had 3 kids go through and they have had a uniformly excellent experience, both academically and socially. I think that the principal is very good at both attracting high quality teachers and retaining them. The staff is very caring and committed to educating ...  Read more

I would not recommend sending any child to this school, not only did my child suffer a major academic decline in the time there, my child was bullied at school, on the bus and even during extra curricular sporting events. The bullying was so intense my spouse and I witnessed it at an after school game ...  Read more

Both my kids went here as a junior high... it was great. While not every moment is perfect (remember, this is junior high!) the teachers and staff were magnificent. Very caring, always willing to help. The PTA was a quiet group but very supportive and really helped in the communication between school ...  Read more

We have had great success at the Middle School. Both my kids were in and are currently in the honors programs. I love the high expectations placed on the kids. It's a great, safe and enriched program... We looked at private schools around the area, and my kids were on pace, and sometimes ahead..

I was at Kirkland junior high for the full three years, and I absolutely loved it. Most of the teachers are nice, and care about if you understand what you're supposed to be learning. There is tons of school spirit there, and the teachers try to relate to teenage problems as much as they can. I really ...  Read more

This school provides very much unneccesary drama ! Too much of it I think. I agree the girls are very judgemental and not easy to make friends with. You have to dress in top designer clothes for people to talk to you. Without the drama, it would be a good school.
