    "This is a great neighborhood school. It has a dual language program, so your child can learn Spanish. The principal, Floyd Starnes, is so warm and welcoming. The teachers are great - especially Barabara Schwartz, who does this very cool STEM program that Mr. Starnes initiated."

    "My daughter is a rising fourth-grader, and loves being at Kemp Mill. She is both bright and difficult to manage, but the staff have been up to the challenge of keeping her engaged. The principal is responsive to parent concerns and strongly believes that each child can be successful. I would like to see more parents involved; the PTA is very limited in the support it can provide to the school because only a handful of parents are active. Typically only a half-dozen or so parents attend the monthly PTA meetings. After-school programs typically supported by a PTA have been discontinued or never offered for lack of a parent willing to serve as program coordinator."

    "I currently have a student at Kemp Mill and am extremely happy there. She has homework every night and her teacher is extraordinary! I, personally have found the Principal to be responsive to any concern I may have. He always has time to meet with me and discuss any concerns I may have. I have watched children move to accelerated classes during the year if not being challenged. The teachers are fantastic at identifying which students need extra help."

    "Kemp Mill has declined over the past few years. The current principal does not support homework, the accelerated curriculum is not as advanced as other schools in the county (yes, I have compared with other schools in the county) and last school year, my child reported witnessing other students curse directly at the teachers repeatedly. If your child is bright, above average, and you live in this part of the county, then consider private school."

    "KMES' location seems a really safe area because it is within a residential community. Its academic agenda seems well-planned because there is a variety of activities that enhance/expand classroom teachings like Math & Science Nights, Reading Programs, Health/Sports Events, and even multi-cultural programs, etc. Personally, our children have commendable classroom experiences. Homeroom teachers like Ms. Wilson, Ms. Anderson (she relocated last year), and Mr. Mahler have proven to be truly extraordinary with their patience and their belief in our (oldest) child's potential. They have been very positive motivators. Currently, there's Ms. Lambert, Ms. Keeney, Ms. Savage and Ms. Leon - all proving to be instrumental to our children's positive attitude towards learning and the academe. Other teachers we don't get to meet often have been supportive, too. Our kids enjoy PE with Mr. Augustin, music with Ms. Reese, etc. It's case-to-case like in anything else. So far, so good!"
