    The teachers and staff at this school are the best. My son has attended this school since kindergarten and my daughter is about to begin her first year at this school. The teachers are always fair and willing to go the extra mile for all of their students. I get weekly updates on how my son is performing from his teacher which shows me that he is noticed as a person and not just another number in a class. Thank you to all of the teachers and staff that put our kids first at this school!

    This is a great school with an eye on what it takes to succeed while maintaining high academic standards. The principal is outstanding and takes her role as a leader very seriously. She is approachable and fair. The teachers are second to none and care about Kishwaukee as a school and the children under their auspices. This is a dedicated group and their succeess shows it.
