Kinsella School Reviews

By a Teacher on

Kinsella is a magnet school of the performing arts.  I have taught in quite a few schools in my 28 years as an educator.  This school is one of the happiest schools I have been in.  The students have the opportunity to dance, act, sing, play an instrument, be highly involved in technology, and be involved in creating art (paint, draw, sew, etc).  On top of all of that, the state testing scores in this school have shown a dramatic increase since the school became a magnet school of performing arts (about 30 points in 3 years).

Kinsella in the beginning was a good school. I have several children that attend kinsella, one of which is special needs. It has been rough because some of the teachers do not know how to handle hildren with special needs and sadly treat them roughly because they assume the child is a problematic child and not a special needs child. My child has experienced being afraid or intimidated because they make everything small or big a problem .Also my child gets frustrated,and discouraged by the staff at times. The school is ok but the staff could us more guidance,and training on dealing with special needs ,special ed, or children with disabilities.I am utterly disappointed and looking forward to a fresh start in a better school...
