    To start off I attended kpms. The school is what a student makes of it not where they come from. Excellent staff not to mention the curriculum. Every student has a spot in this school. Now the discipline is pretty much not the school's fault students can be a handful.These days people think the school is bad when in reality the students are the one's with the issues.I attended kpms from 2004-2007 and I never had a problem with anyone. I excelled each grading period. When it came to eighth grade I had good grades and was accepted into a great school for high school. I recommend kpms to any parent out there. If your child ever struggles with math in eighth grade speak with Lourdes Geller. She's strict but a very helpful teacher that's dedicated to teach the students that want to learn.

    This is a nice school. The teachers in the gifted program are great and you know that you can count on them for anything! But the discipline in this school is not very good because most of the teachers dont care about teasing of the kids and the kids have no one else to go to. Also the school is mostly ESOL and the kids who do not know spanish are made to feel 'out of the group' and are teased in spanish.

    It is not that good because i think that the teachers are focusing to much on the kids that know alot and not on the kids who dont

    This is the best school i have been in. They have great teachers and they treat me very good. If any parent reads this make sure to put your child in this school you wont regret it! The kids in this school have trust in the teachers that is how great the teachers are in this school. They would always have there arms open to any new kid that enters this school. and dont for get the principal she is a hard working person she is always there for any one that needs her and she is a great rollmodel to every one in the school and to all her family members!
