    Kentucky Avenue School has made all the difference in my children's educational success. We transferred to KAS when my son was in 4th grade, and he went from a struggling student who dreaded school to a thriving, engaged, successful student. My daughter was in the gifted program but was still bored in the traditional classroom. KAS has given her the chance to excel in ways that a larger school just couldn't provide. KAS's small class size and responsive classroom environment help to meet students where they are and guide them toward a love of learning. My only regret is that we didn't find KAS sooner!

    One of this school's best resources is the curriculum and teachers. My children are all very different learners and the school is small enough to differentiate their learning speed so that each child reaches their potential. There are many reasons why parents choose KAS, but the reasons to stay are most definitely the sense of community your child and family will feel. Every teacher and staff member knows your child. Not only does this school have very strong academics the social-emotional connection is equally at play. Critical thinking is not only encouraged but valued. My son's recent graduation and years at KAS have most definitely prepared him for a rigorous academic life and the social-emotional learning from KAS has given him the confidence to succeed. I would choose this school over and over again for him.
    Small classes with a very personal experience. If you believe the best way for your child to learn is through close, one on one experiences, this is the school for your child. Class sizes of less than 10 are the norm. Students get plenty of individual attention and cannot slip through the cracks. Learning is balanced with play. The school is secure and unassuming on a quiet street. The parents in the school have become more of a group of friends, rather than just the parents of other students. Any issues are easily discussed and remedied because of the responsiveness of the faculty and the close relationships you build with the other parents. It truly is a community.
