    This school has caring teachers. Administration is always available to help parents/students with any problems they may have. My child is always eager to go to school.

    There really isn't any academic programs in this school which is very disappointing and no extracurricular activities. Though I must say that there are teachers that are very caring. The sad thing is that the principle and vice principle do seem to care much for parents concerns.

    Mark Keppel Elem. has taught my child lots of academic knowledge.The school has also helped improve my kids reading i thank all teachers and all the administration at Mark Keppel.My kid also enjoys being at this school even when he gets sick he gets up early morning saying 'Daddy take me to school but i can't take him because he might get even more sick.'All teachers there at Mark Keppel are really motivated about seeing their alumnies learning more and more as day by day goes on in the school year.The principal Ms.Chaves she is a wonderful woman i have spoken to her in many occassions most of the time when i go talk to my son's teachers about his well being the schools environmental status.The counselours are great as well they are the best at showing and teaching kids how to control themselves in certain occassions.
