I was a student at Kemps Landing from 2nd to 8th grade. I did well academically, and I always felt that I was challenged well and appropriately. Also, the teachers are all amazing. However, the problem with this school is in the mental and emotional repercussions that the students are affected by. There is excessive pressure to perform, and there is a culture that implies that anything less than perfect is not good enough. It is unhealthy and negatively affects students' mental health. After attending Kemps Landing, I have been struggling with self-esteem and anxiety issues. The competition is excessive, the atmosphere toxic, and life-long repercussions are staggering.
