Kent Gardens Elementary School Reviews

New Principal Equals a Better Kent Gardens

By a Parent on

Thankfully Kent Gardens has a new principal who understands and values our diverse school and the importance of a quality education.  Ms. McGuigan, the new principal, has focused on students, curriculum, and ensuring all children reach or exceed their potential.  She also understands that modern families usually have two working parents.  This is true in the events she schedules and the time she offers to her staff and the families across the school.

The scores are only pass rates, they are not an indication of how this school stacks up against other McLean schools. You have to look at  pass-advance rates at the FCPS web site and look up each McLean school.

Most things are great at this school, but they still have issues. Read more about them on the underground parents blogs

I will be new parent in this school. I  heard  so many good reviews from the people and I decided to settle near this school. I attended the open house on 3th Sep, and I really liked the school administiraton, teachers and the school itself. I hope my daughter will enjoy this school as well.
