Keene Mill Elementary School Reviews
Not as great as they think they are.
My kids transferred form Newington Forest to here and I'm sorry to say it was a big mistake. This school is very unwelcoming to parents and visitors. Some of the staff is rude and lack manners. Volunteers are seen as a nuisance and when I wanted to volunteer in my son's class as the teacher put it "I will be looking for volunteers later in the year to help out. However, these are also done outside our room so that our learning environment remains as quiet and calm as possible." I guess they thing I'm going there to cause trouble or revolt the children. Even when my wife drops them in the morning, not even a single "Good morning" from anybody there. The school is bursting at it seams with the large numbers of students. Even though I myself am a teacher at FCPS I am seen as a stranger. I never had problems visiting my kids in their previous schools here and when we were in New York. Another thing that irks me is the ridiculous rules about food in school and no juice at snack time. (First time I've heard this one). Sad to say this but I am desisting of any volunteer involvement or even joining the PTA. I know there are good teachers there but the overall environment is demoralizing.
