This school is terrible! I attend this school currently (Feb 2017) in 7th grade and have been bullied a lot and the teachers do nothing to stop it. The kids are out of control and all the teachers do is give them a "lunch detention" which means they have to sit in a different seat next time at lunch. It stops nothing! Most student are rude! The teachers are so rude also! Even the lunch ladies are rude! Before Kelly Middle School, I had all A's and B's. Now its C's and D's. You cant even wear jeans for picture day at all in Norwich! Which is stupid because you should be able to make your kid look how ever you want them to look on picture day. I do not recommend this school at all!
Caring teachers? Kids making out in science class. Teachers ridiculing disabled students? That's carrying? Faculty not following federally mandated laws.... A principal and vice principal who don't attend ppt meetings, faculty lying at ppts to the point it was necessary to tape the meetings..... Teachers UN prepared for meetings. Oh, I was involved, very involved. The faculty was callous, disinterested, burnt out. Students were out of control. It was azio. I wouldn't send my kids to a Norwich school again ever. Our current school said, and I wrote, "the Norwich schools certainly didn't do your children any favors" My review was not only fair. It was spot on accurate.
Kelly really is not as bad as people make this school out to be. Most of the negative reviews are from parents and students who just gave up and wouldn't put the necessary effort into their own educations. Great administration, great facility, but poor parenting. You can't fault the school for that.
DESPITE negative reviews, and normal school flaws, this school is good. The teachers DO care. They DO care about these students. There are some kids with no respect, who bully, and swear, like other schools. This school is good. Mr. Peckrul is a good principal too.
This school is horrible I went there for 6th and 7th grade. 6th grade was ok but when I got to 7th grade i wanted to get outta there quickly I was bullied all of 7th grade. My father was so irritated we finally had to move.
This place is an absolute zoo. Special education is sketchy at best. Teachers are unprepared for PET's. Right hand NEVER knows what the left hand is doing. Teachers are demoralized and just don't care. If I had the $$ I'd move OR send the kids to private school. Run as fast as you can to another school district!!!
