Kensington is a wonderful school. The principal, a former teacher, is a gem! I have three kids attending and they have had great experiences. Library, art, and science are all funded by the parents. I have found the money drills a bit tiresome but am comfortable just saying no when we can't help.

While it's the highest performing school in bad district,it fails the kids that need it the most. A' no vision' Foundation funds various extra classes that can only be viewed as fluff with lousy teachers for those programs. Needy kids are overlooked as troublemakers or laggards.

Not a good school for slower learners from 4th grade up. High scores don't tell the whole story here. Up to 4th grade a very good school.
Because this community is affluent, and close to the university, many of the families take education seriously and the API reflects that. The lower grade teachers are very professional. The upper grade teachers however, are not as good and the middle school is awful.
