  • I have one going into 2nd grade and one in kindergarden. I think full days would be better, not only for the kids but now in my case I dont have to leave work or take 2 year old son to go get my daughter that been in school for less then 3 hrs. not to mention going back at 2:50 to pick up my other daughter.

  • Knollwood was a excellent school for my son who will now be going into first grade. However I have concerns about this school year. They have changed the cirriculum for the kindergarten to full days. My daughter starts kindergarten this year and I do not think that she is ready to be in school all day.
