August 10, 2013
Honestly when I came to this school, I knew I wouldn't like it. I was bullied and yet Mrs. Wilson (principal) wouldn't do anything. I wish Mrs. Gill came back as our principal. She was a leader and she always helped. Rather than Mrs. Wilson just getting kids in trouble and talking rudely... Other than that the teachers are great. They help me get the education I need. I just go to school for learning not drama.

We simply love GKE. Ms Gill is very efficient, takes the time to listen to parents and promotes parent involvement in school activities. Even makes the effort ( I imagine she must have a tight schedule) to show up at most of the extracurricular activities to encourage/cheer her students. She genuinely cares about her students, each and every one of them and wants the best academic outcome for them. GKE offers great electives & after school activities for the kids: Leadership, Science Olympiad, AVID, Soccer, Basketball, Volleyball, Art etc... The teachers are simply the best! Ms Adams, Ms Bunton, Ms Boehmer, Ms Adkins, Ms Basacker, every one of them. We love it here and we will become even more involved and invested in the school. Go Eagles!!!

George Kelly is the Best!! We love all the teachers, staff and the principal. Mrs. Gill has brought so much to this school in just a short amount of time. It's nice to see a PTO and school that tries to bring the families of the school together with all sorts of functions. My family is happy to be a part of such a great school.Go Eagles!

I suspect the reviewer who wrote, "It's really cool" was written by a student, probably an 8th grader based on the comments.

Looking forward to child atteding this school. I've heard only great things about curriculum and teachers/staff. from actually current parents. On neg reviews all I have to say is they must have an axe to grind. No school could be that bad ,being that school district admins monitor and audit constantly. George Kelly keep up the high integrity and dedication to excellence.

After working as a teacher last year and being pink slipped, I have had the pleasure of subbing for numerous teachers at George Kelly this year. The office staff and teachers are always so welcoming and kind, they always make an effort to say hello. The students are always great to work with, I've never had a 'bad' class while teaching there.

We are very pleased with the kindergarten program and teacher. Our son has shown tremendous improvement both socially and academically since he joined the school. He attended a p private pre-school and was very shy. Now he is very outgoing child. We are very, very happy with the curriculum, the staff and especially with his teacher. We also love the fact that there is a year round calendar available.

My daughter has started her first yr as a Kindergartener at George Kelly. So far she has been doing above average. I am very much satisfied with the curriculum that is being offered, not to mention the weekly assessments that the children are asked to take in order to rake their performance in class. Also one thing I would like to add and to which alot of parents may agree is the credit not only goes to the teachers or schools (for that matter). But also to the parents who spend time with their child as well. And in doing so not only will they help the child perform well in class but also to do good or maybe above average academically. Because at the end it is not about the school (whether 'Public or Private') but the values and importance of education that they get to learn from our teachings.
