    I feel it is not the norm but our experience has NOT been a good one. My son attends kindergarten at KPS. I recently learned that when a student in my son's class talks during lunch they are sent to what she calls the "Table of Shame". KPS only gives 25 minutes for lunch and therefore has a no talking rule and I understand separating them from the group for breaking the rule but Table of Shame? Shaming young students for socializing during a non-academic timeframe is hardly acceptable. Their minds and self-esteem are still developing and such a thing can permanently damage their confidence levels and outlook on school in its entirety. Furthermore several teachers in the school have commited grammar and spelling errors such as using apostrophes in plural not possessive words. Society has begun making exceptions for such clear violations of common rules but an educator should not be excused for such a thing. These people are supposed to be educating our children on the rules not violating them themselves. KPS prides themselves in being an above average school but the only thing that sets them apart is their stricter behavioral rules. Academics are the same as any other.

    KPS has been a blessing to my daughter. As we began the process of moving we research schools in the area. In a much bigger city it is hard to find a school that is public that can compare. The southern hospitality and friendly atmosphere are second to none. Results are my daughter is reading at a very high level in Kindergarten. Her teacher Mrs. Scott is an Angel and provides structured and planned learning.

    I have had two children attend this school. The entire staff from the principals to the counselors are very eager to help you in whatever area needed. This would be a excellent choice.

    Kinchafoonee has fallen short of my expectations. My son has had problems on the playground safety has been a concern. They have up about 80 children with only 2 teachers on the playground at at time. I feel like I am not welcome in this school as a parent.

    My Daughter attended KPS for two years and had perfect teachers. Mrs Barrett was a true treasure. My Husbnd is in the military so we had to move otherwise we never would have left!

    I have a child with a disability at this school. They are so helpful when it comes to looking after him. They don't treat him any differently than the other kids. I love this school and so does he. The teachers are great.

    I love everything about this school. My daughter has excelled in all subjects and has been enrolled in the gifted program which she loves. The children are very well behaved and the teachers and administrators are excellent. I could never have hoped for a more positive learning environment. This school ROCKS!

    Kinchafoonee Primary school is one of the finest schools I have ever been in. The teachers are highly qualified and the students are very well behaved. Every student gets recess music art and physical education. The academic programs are of high quality and the students leave prepared for lifelong learning.
