    Kenwood is a regular school. There's nothing extraordinary about it. There's no before/after school enrichment programs almost no outside community help parental support is low. I do think my son's teacher is extraordinary though. My son loves his teacher and going to school. So I can't complain too much but Kenwood just doesn't have what other schools in the area have. I honestly believe it's because their principal doesn't want to do anything. Kenwood could be a wonderful school. They have great test scores and great teachers but they aren't....they're just average. The procedures for picking up and dropping off children is horrible. Vans double park to drop off kids and make it dangerous for everyone and the principal just stands there and lets it happen. The Kenwood PTA president is changing things slowly. Rockwell is becoming more involved in Kenwood and some things are starting.

    My daughter is in the 2nd grade and I am disappointed in the following * Repeat of what last year's teaching (my daughter attended a different Iowa elementary school last year) * Lack of communication about what the students are learning (lack of parent involvement) * Lack of challenges for my daughter---no homework or outside study
