Edwin J Kiest Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

Good and honest teachers, only cafeteria staff are very mean to the children during lunch. I myself feels threatend when im there to eat with my child. The kids get yelled at and get blown a loud whistle for talking to loud. I remember my ears hurting and just wanting to leave. I can only imagine the poor kids having to deal with this everyday. I am thinking about enrolling my child else where next year.

Communication, Compassion, Responsibility, Active Listening, Respect, Humbleness.........Not just from one group, but from all: administration, community, staff, and students. Please, ask yourself this question before leaving a comment: At the end of the day, did I do everything I could to make E.J. Kiest successful? Yes, E.J. Kiest is AU...This status has been ingested into our system and had time to marinate into our brains :), but it's time to move foward! Start changing your mindset!!!!! This mindset must come from every group: Administration, Staff, Parents, and Students. I guarantee once that mindset changes, you will see a powerful transformation that will make E.J Kiest EXEMPLARY! But it will take more than a few words written for a review, it will take believing in your administration, teachers, community, and students! Thank You!

Morale is still low don't be fooled. Humiliation, people are tricked into quitting, or released by the opinion of one inexperienced individual who wrote the last blog. Looks like administration. Thank God for freedom of speech. Some teachers can no longer be bullied. He fired us experienced teachers. Hopefully now its your turn.

I feel this school is on an upward trend. Morale was quite low several years ago with both teacher and parent complaints however, it has come a long way since that time. Staff seems to be learning more and being held accountable to the children's needs. They for the most part also seem attentive to the communitys' needs. I would also like to note that the only academic area for growth that this school has is in writing. Reading, Math, and Science were all at the Recognized range.

The school was recognized because the teachers were able to use their knowledge and talents to help all students. They are well prepared and up to date in educational needs. Now with this administration that does not know anything about running a successful school it became unacceptable. If the administrators continue at this school it is doomed to fail again. Both, the principal and the assistant principal are tyrants and are misusing their powers. Their program is not working because according to them is based research, ignoring the needs of the students in the neighborhood. Worst leaders ever
