I don't know how the student-teacher ratio is calculated here as 16:1. My son has 28 students in his class and student numbers in other classes are similar, usually close to 30 students per home room teacher.

My child's teachers at Kinawa are fantastic! I love how they challenge her to learn extra yet don't have her feeling overwhelmed. She is genuinely excited to learn and share with me what she did in school each day. The students are typical middle school students so there are a couple not so nice ones here and there, but mostly they are kind and compassionate kids that are raised in good families. I also LOVE their music program and all the extracurricular activities they have available to them, including Science Olympiad. I feel confident sending my daughter to Kinawa as I know her social/emotion well being is taken care of at Kinawa and she is receiving a quality education.

Test scores are good, but that's due as much to demographics and parental education as anything happening in the classroom. The administrators are lazy and "too busy" to meet with parents. Interpersonal issues between kids (e.g., bullying) are not addressed without significant parental follow-up. The teachers teach to the bottom of the class, presumably for test-score purposes, and blame "administrative requirements" for their unwillingness to step things up for more accelerated students. We've had children as students in the district for over a decade, and have noted a marked deterioration in the quality and leadership capabilities of the administrators in the last several years.
