    "Excellent education; most of the students are very bright, engaged, and talented; terrific principal; majority of teachers range from good to amazing; compared to other public elementary schools with similar numbers of students, campus is large with a good amount of grass & play space."

    "i am not sure what kenter canyon the person who gave such a negative review a few posts down. i am a parent of a kindergartener and we do celebrate bdays and holidays. they celebrated halloween, all the winter holidays, valentines, pres day, MLK day and just now saint patty's day. our class, room 3 did day 100 too. i get 2 emails a week from our class parents as well as a friday newsletter and the friday folder that fills me in on all the happenings, which are many. i have had ample chances to meet other parents and families.. there is a lot going on there. i am not sure what class you are in, but my experience has been totally different. we love kenter and cant wait till my other son is old enought start there."

    "Kenter is a magic place for my child, the teachers and principal truly care about our children! My only concern is my eight-year-old came home today crying because their PE class was 50 minutes of talking and no play. The coach went over rules my children have known since kindergarten why waste there time with this when they only have PE twice per week! The best solution would be to have an assembly and go over all the rules of handball with the school or send out the rules in our Friday folders instead of wasting a whole PE class. I think it's sad that most of the kids don't know the rules of many of our games! I have walked by the North yard and I see children not participating, I know the coach can't make them play but his job is to be positive and more encouraging to our children and make PE fun again. Thanks, concerned parent room 6."

    "There is no such thing as a perfect school where everything goes right all of the time. That said, Kenter Canyon is an excellent school with a very caring and competent staff. The scathing comment below does not take into account the quality of staff and education present 95% of the time. There are many changes that parents and staff would like to see, however it is important to recognize that Kenter still operates within and is bound in many cases by the larger bureaucracy of LAUSD. I am not privy to how the aides or anyone else gets paid, but Mr. Lewis does an exemplary job as do most of the other aides who all deserve more money and recognition than the currently get."

    "I am an involved parent at Kenter for the last 6 years. Kenter has been a wonderful experience for my family by providing both a solid foundation in core elementary education and a wide variety of enrichment classes. Most important, we feel that Kenter is a wonderful community of local families who care about their school, the students and the overall community. I am posting this review in response to the review posted yesterday. To clarify a few points made, all classroom aides currently get paid the same rate which is set by LAUSD. If someone is earning more money it is because they are rendering additional services to PSG (the parent group) or the Kenter administration or they perform differentiated services. In addition all enrichment personnel decisions are made after a thorough process involving parents and the Kenter administration. PSG's board minutes, financials and budget are available for review by all parents. I encourage anyone who has questions to get more involved and to come to the periodic PSG general meetings (which are publicized to parents through emails) and all these personnel issues can be addressed and discussed in an open and appropriate forum."
