    Kindergarten Academy is an excellent school with 100% teacher participation/cooperation. Mrs. DeSanctis is an awesome Principal. My son will never forget his experiences at Kindergarten Academy.

    My son attended this school for 4 years. It was wonderfull. We moved to Baltimore regreting the fact I had to pull him out of this school. I also was lucky to be a student teacher at this school and see things closely. There could not be a better relationship among parents teachers and children. Loved it.

    My daughter attended the Kindergarten Academy this year. It was an amazing experience. She went in to kindergarten only know how to wroite her name. She is not only leaving having made new friends but she is reading and writing complete sentences doing math telling time...her teacher was wonderful as well as the specialized teachers. Mr. Mac is the gym and health teacher who the kids all love! Delaware County is so lucky to have such a wonderful school to begin our children's journey.

    My daughter came into this school late. But I found that she was learning so much more then were we came from. The only issue I had was the principle each time I had to visit the school I would see her 're directing' a child in a negative way. I was not happy with her performance as a principle.

    I found that the teaching staff is excellent. They are very caring staff and have a lot of patience with the students. Although I have found it difficult to relate with the principle of this school. I am very grateful to find that the adminstration at the other schools are very nice people. Looking forward to the future years to come.

    My son loves attending the ISD KA. This all day kindergarten only school in the interboro school district school focuses on every aspect of the child-- emotional physical and intellectual.I wouldn't imagine any private academy being better. The principal is truly involved in the whole program. Recommend to all.

    I am truly thankful that my son got to attend Kindergarten Academy (and wish that my daughter had the same experience). They have an excellent program that is 'all day.' My son was ready for first grade and was proficient in reading and math upon graduation. They have a nice music program also. My son actually 'skipped' in the front door every day of the school year. The teachers are well qualified and really know how to handle the children. I can assure you that you will not be disappointed if your child attends this school.
