    The teachers are great but I wish the English but I wish the english department taught grammar. They already have reading so I would like my kids to learn grammar. My kids have had Mrs. Bennett for reading and they really like her class becuase she made reading fun. They really liked the little library she had in her room with books that are popular with 7th&8th graders. My kids would tell me about the books they read in class almost everyday.

    being a student here at kimball id have to say that this school could use some improvment.you either have to be in S.W.A.S to be with people that actually work to their potential or else you are stuck with the kids who dont care about school unless your in an honors class so its not that good. their after school activities are o.k but after they took away track in place for soccer i was disappointed just because i like track.
