What did we learn from Students?

James
Elementary Day

The Community Room is not big enough when parents come to visit… The Computer Room gets used a lot… its convenient to have the computers right there…

It would be nice to eat outside. The Community Room is unpleasant to eat in!

The Kildonan School – Campus Master Plan

What did we learn from Students?
Walking through M1 classroom to get to M2 is not ideal! The student store would be great if it was open during our break… a café or deli would be good to have too!

Preston
Middle Day

The location of the school is good…it‟s nice to be outside walking to class…

It would be nice to have a lounge for day students. Right now we just hang out in the field…

What did we learn from Students?
Assistive Technology needs a bigger space near tutoring rooms… with NO DISTRACTIONS! We need a new Art Building! Wood and Metal work is part of Art and should be together… some improvements and modernization would be great!

A designated area for Study Hall is needed; right now it‟s distracting for students coming in and out… The school store should be part of a new campus center!

Alex
High Day

August
High Board

It would be good to have somewhere to eat outdoors…

What did we learn from the Parents?
(47 responses – 56% Boarding, 82% 1-3 Years, 60% HS)

The Dining hall, Art Barn, Middle School, Wilson and Goldman dorms need the most help Supporting technology and the arts is a priority The strongest asset on campus is the general environs and setting Most of the facilities as „tired‟ or „run-down‟ but „warm‟ and „homey‟
“…since Ben Powers has been headmaster, the facilities have improved. Things look refreshed.” “…once your child has been there the general atmosphere of the staff and students enhance the appearance.”

“…the campus has many untapped potentials”
