Katherine Anne Porter School Reviews

So thankful for KAPS!

By a Parent on

This was my daughter's first year at KAPS. She was successful academically at the public High School but she hated going and suffered severe anxiety. Switching to KAPS was the best decision we made. After her first day she came home saying her brain hurt "in a good way" from all of the thinking. I too am impressed with the amount of critical thinking which is very different at the High School where she was told information to memorize then regurgitate on a test. Her teachers all took a personal interest in her and challenged her to be her best. The other kids are kind and inclusive and made her feel welcome from day 1 (another stark difference between her KAPS experience and her High School experience.) Before she cried every morning worried about going to school. Now that she is a KAPS student, she gets up and is eager to go.

Great academical but awful socially

By a Parent on

This school is a great school academically but peer pressure to do drugs is very strong. At least 90 % of the kids do drugs at school. Teachers tend to look the other way.   Social acceptance is based on whether you will participate in illegal drugs.  Do not send a kid who already has a drug problem it will escalate here
