Open Quote Kenmore was the best middle school I could've asked for. I genuinely enjoyed my time there, and would recommend it to anyone. Especially for theater and tech kids, this school is amazing. Close Quote

Open Quote This school is amazing! It has the best art program in all of Arlington. The teachers are so wonderful and nice. The administrators are just as nice as well. We have a ton of Musicals and Performances. We have one of the top orchestra and bands in the country, and the most 3-D printers out of any middle school in the country. We have dance P.E. As an option, instead of normal P.E.. The school has many windows, so lots of natural light, I love it here. There is an incredible Gifted Program, for math and English. Kenmore also offers 5+ languages. The only downside to this school is that many kids come and can't speak English, so there test scores are lower because they cannot read as well. This school though Is very diverse and I highly recommend this school to any tech. lovers and or theater enthusiasts. Close Quote

Open Quote The only reason this school is getting one star is because zero stars is not an option. This school sends the majority of the kids out feeling worse than they did to begin with, the kids are constantly being peer-pressured into doing drugs and alcohol, it is racially separated informally, and it gives kids the impression that not being smart is cool, which sets most of the kids up to fail. This last reason is possible the most important. If you SchoolDigger could set up a way to measure how alumni do in later life, this would be apparent. Personally, this school has fostered depression and bullying for me. Both were ignored. This is the worst school you could possibly send your kids to. I do not recommend it at all. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
