Truly Kipling does not take the best interest of the students in mind. They don't care about what's best for the students; they do what they want to do.

I agree whole heartedly with the previous commentor. Kipling is the worst school I have ever experienced. They do keep parents out of their childs educational loop. Kipling feels that they know what is best for YOUR child and they will tell the parents one thing while they are doing something totally different. They hide very pertinent information from parents. I have also experienced them telling my kids not to tell me whats going on in their classes. This is bad; and the District Officer of Kipling doesn't care as well. I have called and complained about Kipling and nothing was done. The food served at Kipling is not worth dogs eating. Kipling is always sending notices home asking for money and uses the money for personal gains instead.
