    Kraft is a family and an awesome place for my sons. The administration is always helpful and available and the teachers go above and beyond the call of duty. Kraft is wonderful as they do many things to connect my children to the community such as National Ride Your Bike to Schools Day food drives and other volunteer opportunities. We have not moved because we don't want to leave our school

    My daughter transferred to Kraft after the school year had begun. She is a very smart child and is doing well academically but I'm told quite often about how disruptive the classroom gets as well as the cafeteria. She spilled milk during luch one day and was sent to the nurse for a change of clothes. Only thing that was wrong .. she was never allowed to finish eating her lunch. She didn't have lunch that day until she arrived home. Once again I believe that the disruptive children are outnumbering the little ones that are full of energy as well yet behaved when need be.

    We have recently moved away from Hampton and never really appreciated the education that the Kraft staff gave to my duaghter until that move. Kraft is a wonderful school and we truly miss the dedication of the teachers and principal! Just look at those SOL scores!

    Christpoher Kraft is an excellent school. My child has excelled here. This school has exceeded my expectations of a public school. The teachers not only work with the children they stay in communication with the parents.
