The information listed here is quite outdated, as there are more than 1,000 students at this school and the student-to-teacher ratio is much higher. Check GreatSchools for more current info. Kester does very well with its limited resources; the teachers are very dedicated and there is a group of parents that is energetic and involved, making a tremendous difference. There is a new science lab and PE and art programs, thanks to the PTA. The school is pretty and neat. After-school care lacks sufficient supervision.
