Newington Schools are amazing, and M.K is one of them. This is the first school that is offering "Academy of Biomedical Sciences" for kids. They invested allot of money to build a Lab and special classrooms for kids . The teachers are great, very easy to talk to, and helpfull in any way. Its great that kids with strengthes in math /science, or just beeing interested in Biomedical field get the early experience, of what direction they want to in the future. As the time comes to go to College, i think they will know for sure what they want to do , where most kids are clueless at that point, confused, and to earlie to decide what to do. Its much more requared from this class than the other middle school classes, the school days are longer, and more homework. Any hard work pays off at the end.

Along with these other reviews, I too think MKMS is a good environment But some times there is bullying even though the school has a NO BULLYING policy. I highly suggest this school! :)

I am in the seventh grade, and i have been in kellogg sence 5th. The staff and teachers are kind and friendly, they are more than willing to help out. The school is clean and enviormently friendly. Students, as far as i know, are well behaved. A safe and "clean"(no swearing, bullying,etc) school. If you are debating on putting your child in kellogg, I strongly suggest you do. The school offers so many extra programs. Between challenging academic programs, strong parent interaction(PAC), chorus, band, sports, and plays. I am looking forward to the rest of the year, and 8th grade.

This year is my child's second year at MKMS and so far the experience has been a positive one. The principal and teaching staff have been very approachable and any questions or concerns I've had have been handled in a very prompt and caring manner.

I am a girl who used to go to MKMS. MKMS has children that learn what they should be learning in a higher grade. This school has an art room with a wheel and has saws to make objects out of wood. MKMS has many things that other schools don't have.
