I have long wished that the school my children attend would have the things that MKA offer. I feel very lucky that my child has had the opportunity to be part of this community. Reading some of the student reviews, I think kids on a whole don't always realize what they have when they have it. This school is EXCELLENT. Trust me, I've seen the other side of the coin, and it isn't always beautiful. The faclities are fantastic, the teachers are very open minded and truly care about the curriculum they teach. The school offers everyting from local volunteer opportunities, to Global Experience programs going to Tanzania, France and China, as well as a very well developed art and music department, and excellent sports opportunities. There are kidh here from every walk of life—the one thing they all have in common is the love of learning and the will to put in the hard work that it takes to succeed. OMaybe I've just been lucky, but once the Advisors see anything they think may be an issue, you're contacted immediately.

Overall? The best there is.

With 5/6 of our children having attended MKA, after a public school experience- the faculty and administration is caring- and committed, the kids are engaged and accepting of one another's differences. What a wonderful community of learners!
The Montclair Kimberley Academy has over-prepared me for college and was a good way to help me understand how to take on the academic side of college. The students are open and caring, much like the faculty and staff. Unfortunately, the school is VERY homogenous. Consisting on a majority of upper-class, white, students, it's VERY hard for someone who is not any of those to feel at home.
