I've attended this school since fourth grade and I definitely had my ups and downs. I've been fortunate enough be taught by amazing teachers throughout my middle and high school experience. They have guided me, opened my mind and prepared me to face the challenges roaming out there after I graduate. However, there are topics the school could work on from some of the food they provide for lunch to expanding more recognition to the arts. the high cost to attend this school was also a struggle for my family. However, I'm very thankful for being able to experience the diversity and enlightenment offered by this school.
I attended Montclair Kimberley Academy from pre-k through 12th grade, and I am very grateful for everything the school gave and taught me. The teachers are engaging and passionate about what they do, and the school makes every effort to cultivate a diverse, supportive learning and growing community.
