Parent Reviews

"KSD has provided such a caring, educational environment for our son and given him full access to his surroundings.  The teachers pour their whole heart into each child and set high expectations for their success. They provide a safe place to nurture their uniqueness and create relationships that will last forever."   Chelsea Mills/preschool mom


"I cannot say enough positive things about KSD. When my son came to KSD, he blossomed. They took good care of him (residential life) and the teachers made sure he was meeting his academic goals as well as social. I am so proud of him and recommend KSD."   Alda Walker/senior mom


"The preschool program at KSD was a Godsend for us. Our son has progressed in so many ways in both oral speech and ASL. I am truly grateful for everyone who interacts with him at school."  

Laura Cullen/preschool mom
