What Our Families Say About The Kessler School
"The small class sizes and engaged parent community makes The Kessler School an amazing choice for families. Our family was welcomed with open arms at TKS when we arrived in Dallas, and our children have thrived since starting in the program. Students receive a top-class education from experienced faculty in modern facilities on a green, tree-filled campus, and form important friendships with kids from diverse backgrounds."
- Manuel F. Valencia and Jacqueline Chen Valencia, Parents, The Kessler School
"The Kessler School is an outstanding educational resource for our family. The best proof of that? We have two boys with two very different learning styles and personalities, who are both happy and eager to go to school every day.
For us, The Kessler School is the perfect fit. Small, welcoming classes. Devoted, creative teachers. Proactive, experienced staff. Involved, friendly parents. TKS provides an ideal schooling environment along with individualized education plans tailored to help each and every child thrive. Communication is exceptional -- from daily classroom posts and newsletters to student-led conferences and teacher check-ins, we feel informed, involved, and invited to take an active role in our children’s progress. TKS also offers an enriching aftercare program, a fantastic literacy coach on staff (TKS is a great place to raise a future reader and writer), and specialists in art, music, physical education, and languages. It’s easy to list the many great offerings, in fact, but what’s harder to describe is the warmth you feel from the moment you step inside the school – The Kessler School is truly a nurturing, accepting, empowering place that insists on teaching fairness, fostering mutual respect, and building a better, more compassionate community.
We couldn’t be more pleased with what our boys are learning and who they are becoming as people. Please take a school tour and consider becoming an extended member of the greater TKS family."
- Peter Short & Sue Batterton, Parents, The Kessler School
"You will be happy to know, that in our opinion developed through our research, TKS has the best academic rigor balanced with the most opportunity for enrichment through specials (Spanish every day, PE/recess, art program, etc.) and alternative learning programs, like OWLs. And I found TKS testing methodology to be by far the most advanced in terms of individual bench marking and informing teachers to individual learning styles. In short, you should feel extremely proud of what you all have built to be a shining gem in our neighborhood, more over our City."
- Leslee Mallinson, Parent, The Kessler School
"These precious children have no idea what a wonderful experience they are having and how blessed they are to have this school. In all my experiences of schools The Kessler School is the best I have ever experienced. Children are happy, Children are engaged, and teachers are compassionate."
- Nancy Brown, Grandparent and Educator.
