    My daughter has been at Kenrose since moving from CO in March of 2013. She is now a 5th grader. I have been nothing but disappointed in the school the staff the lack of care and attention and the un-inviting feel they gave us as a new family. Her 4th grade teacher assumed she was up-to-speed w/ the curriculum so she let her slip through the cracks. After MUCH fighting I finally received an apology and extra help. My daughter is bright she just needed to learn the systems the expectations and the general groove of the school. Why did I have to fight for that to happen? I've told teachers the principal the WC Superintendent Asst Superintendent and the WC HR Director how unfortunate our experience has been. WC may be the best in TN but that isn't saying much. Both Kenrose and my sons HS are FAR below our standards! I fear we'll have the same nightmare in middle school. Kenrose has definitely stained our perception of this county. If looking to move here I highly recommend another school; one that not only excels in academics but offers a caring and family-friendly environment to ALL families not just the families with money. I couldn't be more disappointed in Kenrose.

    Interesting stat...if you eliminate the teachers the student-parent score is 3.7 hardly the best based on this sample.

    Fantastic school! Great staff and programs. Dedicated principal and leadership. Encourages and helps children to do their best and develop their potential.

    Teaching at Kenrose is an absolute joy. As of last year we were the largest elementary school within Williamson County. Our International population is impressive which makes for a very diverse learning environment! I am not familiar with the no water bottle rule as someone else previously stated this may have been simply a preference by one specific teacher.

    I hated this school. When i moved to Tennessee my parents wanted only THE best education in the state. Everybody said this was the school to go to. Haha very funny. The staff was cold and had ridiculous rules. (like how we had to keep water bottles in our backpacks during the school day and not at our desk because they might spill.) It's an unhappy place and I switched schools at the end of the year. And too much "teaching to TCAP" all the teachers cared about was TCAP ALL YEAR. please don't make your child go here.

    My husband and I could not be more proud that our son attends Kenrose! We are very pleased with how well our son is doing and that he has enjoyed his first year as a Kindergartner! The staff are friendly professional and create a wonderful environment for learning!

    My heart still sinks when I think about our family's experience when our son entered Kinder here. Not all might have the same experience but here's a glimpse @ mine. I did not feel like I was a partner/involved/appreciated in my child's education. It was not an inviting environment for children or families...except if u wanted 2 raise funds for the school then u had privileges & access but had 2 b sort of initiated by the parents who had been @ the school longer. I have a degree in education & my son was reading in pre-school. At our teacher conference the veteran teacher said that our son does not know his ABCs ("he said them too fast so I could not give him credit"). She did not ask him to say them again slowly. I asked what his learning style was (this is important in order to know how to best teach) & she said it was too soon for her to tell (2+ mo). My son started 2 become introverted & afraid of speaking up. He would cry if I would ask things like why can u no longer take water 2 school (no! mom the teacher said no...teary eyed). In class they discussed guns & killing (via DARE program) but no note was sent home to inform the parents. We pulled him out by November.

    I love teaching at this school and I'm so impressed with the parents and community support! I don't think you could find a better elementary school in Williamson County! The school is run with professionalism in a very nurturing environment.

    Kenrose is the best rated elemenatry school in Williamson County by far. It has awesome teachers and a very friendly environment. You would have to be crazy not to like this school and the person who wrote the review two down is. The principal is one of the best in the country and he runs things very smoothly. I completely agree with last review.

    I completely disagree with the last parent's assessment of Kenrose Elementary. I have been on the faculty at the school as well as a parent of a child in this school and it is the best you will find. Our administration staff and parents are known throughout the county for their expertise caring natures and great involvement. It is a safe school and the principal may be out on the playground checking on his staff and students not breaking up fights! Any child is fortunate to be able to attend this school and I would happily recommend it to any family.

    I have been completely un-impressed with this school it's faculty and it's teachers. They could be doing a much better job of keeping the children safe. The principal has to stand in the playground during recess to keep children from fighting. I would look long and hard before making this school your number 1 choice!
