The teachers at this school treat the children as If they were their own kids. It is such a loving and caring environment to be in and the children in the school are very behaved aswell as THe staff. My daughter had went to this school from K-6 and graduated last year.
Had a very rough year at this school. Problems with classroom communication about homework, test schedules, classroom expectations, etc. We had a meeting with the principal which resulted in a lot of talk and very little action. Our child was harassed continuously by other students and very little was done to stop it. Several students in the classroom had been sent to PASS Academy but kept returning with the same behaviors that continued to be represented throughout the school year. It was pretty clear that several discipline problems were lumped together into one classroom.
Love, love, love this school!!!! Teachers and staff are amazing!! They go way beyond what is required of them to help the students and to be there for them...and Mrs. Gregory is the best teacher I've EVER met! This school may be relatively small, but it is the BEST school my child has ever attended.
We have been involved with Kelly Springs for five years and have another child coming up through kindergarten this year. I have never been more pleased with a school! The staff has always been caring toward my children and welcoming to me as a parent. The diversity of this school is incredible, right down to the fablulous students in the special education departments. Each child is treated with respect and encouraged to make themselves the best they can be. If only we encoutered that philsophly in our world. I would hold Kelly Springs up to any Magnet School - it is simply unmatchable!! Kudos to Mrs. Kelley, principal, you are an excellent leader for our children.
I don't know why anyone would want to send their child to the magnet school . Kelly Springs is close by, has excellent teachers, teaches the same curriculum as the magnet school and Kelly Springs has a LinC program which the magnet school does not have.
