I love Keheley. I went there from kindergarten all the way to 5th grade. They have been an excellent influence. They set the bar high.they know if u work at something u can achieve.

We are very pleased with Keheley! Our daughter has attended for the 3 years & we are continually encouraged how standards are maintained or exceeded each year. I knew this was a great school on Day 1 when I saw the "Word of the Week" posted on the school's front sign: "INTEGRITY". This & so many other values are taught & exhibited by the Keheley team. The school leadership is focused & provides a tangible presence throughout the school. This is evident in Principal's and Vice Principal's direct involvement in curriculum standards, programs & community spirit. Support staff are knowledgeable & their focus on quality is excellent. My opinion on teachers is based on those my child has had for the past 3 years. They are remarkable! If you are looking for a teacher to challenge your child & hold them accountable for their education, this is the place. Don't seek a push-over teacher you feel is a substitute for your personal babysitter...not their role! Standout programs are the TARGET program for gifted students and the Phys Ed program. Kudos to Mrs. Lawson (PE) and Mrs. Simson (TARGET). The PTA is very active & a great support for the entire school!

We are new to GA and new to Keheley, and although it is still early in the year, I cannot say enough amazing things about this school! My daughter has had a rough (to say the least) transition, and EVERYONE is working with us, as this is totally uncharted territory for us- the PTA is amazing, extremely involved (A VAST difference from where we moved from) and even when I would have a mommy breakdown and discuss what is going on, even parents want to help- honestly, i feel very blessed to be at Keheley, and my daughter is now transitioning as she should be with lots of help from Mrs. Armbruster (she is awesome!) and the rest of the Keheley family- I will say, if you do not want to be an involved parent, then this is not the right school for you- we have met some amazing people and it has a very small hometown feel- the administration actually works with you to HELP your child, which is such an amazing feeling, especially when as a parent, something new is going on and you feel helpless- we will be very sad when it is time for middle school!

We think that the school is not so student friendly.The teachers are rude to my son.If he tries to explain himself it is regarded as arguing with teacher and he is immediately punished.They have been always mean to him.I am frustrated with them being partial to few favourite kids.

I will have my fourth child enrolled at Keheley in August 2010. Keheley is a warm and loving environment with kind staff members and teachers. My children have all benefited from a nurturing attitude and additonal help and services when the need is seen.

Keheley is a small public elementary school. We are like a close family. Everyone volunteers and helps support the students, staff and teachers. We pitch in to buy school supplies, pay for field trips and more for families that cannot. We do not have a foundation. Many of our teachers have retired or will retire from Keheley. They stay long term. We promote kindness to stand out in todays world.

Better leadership from new principal has shown its effect and the school is on its way up to a new height. Abundance of opportunities exist for students and their parents strive for excellence. School is very organized and caters for all students which creates a positive environment for a normal kid to grow. Better prepared students really need to be in the TARGET program which employs two outstanding teachers, Mrs. Simpson and Mrs. Buckley, who will push and prod good students to become better. Overall, it is an excellent school for children from middle and up-middle class families.

I had four children at Keheley and loved it. They have had some great teachers and some that were ok. They also really enjoyed the PE teachers, Art and Music. Carolyn Mills was a fantastic principal with the students best interest at heart. The people at the front office where also friendly and very approachable. It is a very close nit school with 100% PTA participation. The Target class is only once a week, but they make it fun, educational and it helps you to think outside the box. I believe every child should be able to participate is classes like the Target classes-they would enjoy classes more and you just learn a lot of neat things.

I have three children currently attending Keheley, with varying degrees of ability within their grades. All have had great teachers who have used nothing short of 100% of their abilities to keep my children excited about learning. All of their teachers have been very open to dialog with me about their individual progress and suggestions on how to get the most of each were traded on both sides of the fence. Love the school.

This is the elementary school where you will want your child to be K-5. There is a very high rate of master degreed teachers and the number is increasing all of the time. The teachers are encouraged to improve themselves on a continous basis and are supported by the parents and community. There is a very active and involved PTA at Keheley. Children's safety and student achievement are the number one priorties at this school. The staff are committed to the well being and academic success of the students. I have had three children go through Keheley Elementary and they have all had different needs that have been met or exceeded while attending. There are many programs that are offered and the TARGET, (gifted) program is exceptional! I can't say enough about the wonderful and diverse education my children received while at Keheley Elementary.
