    The staff and faculty at KGE are amazing! The previous posts are very outdated and I'm not sure when there was a regime change but I have had nothing but good experiences at that school. The entire faculty engages each student and makes them feel welcome. I could not have asked for a better school for my kids this past year.

    Great teachers. But horrible office staff I agree they are very unprofessional. The so called representive of the special education discriminates against the needs of the child. It is very hard to get your special needs child what he needs in order to keep up. If it wasn't for the teachers the school would be one ugly mess. Thanks to all the teachers who care about the childrens needs in order to succeed academically! Teachers here do a wonderful job with our children!

    Better schools with better Administration in the district. Good teachers! The office staff is rude and very unprofessional!!! The office staff and administration are a negative of this school. Otherwise it is great!

    quality of academic programs is low. The reading requirements and understanding of basic skills is ignored if the child does not start in this school. The basic principles of math are also ignored. I wonder if the 4th graders understand geography of the United States.

    Wonderful school. Great teachers and staff. I've observed other elementaries in the area...no comparison to KG! Would not have sent my child to another school!
