School Reviews

  • Recommended November 07, 2013 - As an alum, I can honestly say that KWS provides an invaluable education. My teachers taught me how to approach learning from my own perspective and instilled in me a love of science and art. I went on to college and the professional world feeling that I could do anything, and I still feel that way today. - Posted by Student/Alumni
