After a very new year in CPS I am very happy with Keller. The principal is new here and I think she has done a great job. The staff is very caring and ready to talk when approached in a civil manor. I look forward to next year, a year with out the controversy of this past and many more years at this wonderful school with so many caring staff and parents.

The staff at this school is the best staff in the world. They take that extra step, and really care, about helping the kids. All the kids all the time. Each and evey staff member is this way. The staff and the parents come together and get it done. I can't say enough about this staff really, really the best in the world.

My daughter has received an exceptional education at Keller. Schools work when the trilogy of dedicated well trained teachers, hard working students and supportive families come together. Keller is a beacon for achievement, diversity and success for public education in the city of Chicago.

In general, the public schools in the City of Chicago are in disarray. Here is a school that is the best in the City and the best in the entire State, hands down. All public education should strive to be this exceptional.

Keller is the best of both worlds. Not only is it an outstanding school academically, but the culture is one of warmth, respect, and love. Keller is more than just a school, it's an extension of home and its community of staff, student body, and parents feel like extended family!

My granddaughter goes there, and she is really enthused by a large variety of things to do. The teachers don't let the children know that there are things that they are not capable of doing. They are encouraged to accomplish anything they want.

Keller Gifted School is a wonderful school for a child to attend. The staff are sincere, helpful and really do believe in educating the 'whole' child. Whatever assistance or issues I have encountered (ie. school bus routes at the beginning of school or my son's falling grades), the school has an 'open door policy' and has always given me great advicesupport or addressed whatever concerns I may have expressed. Keller teachers provide students with an excellent educational foundation that my child will carry with him to high school. When my son comes home at the end of the day, I know he has learned something new whether it be regarding education or staff instilling moral values. So few schools in Chicago really nurture the children or display a familycommunity environment but at Keller somehow they are able to 'pull it off' successfully every year. I will miss Keller as my child graduates this year but I know the Keller administration and staff will continue to provide each child that enters their doors with a well-rounded education that they can carry with them to next step in their educational careers.

I am currently an eighth grader at Keller, and though I'm happy to be graduating, I don't want to leave. This school is amazing. All the teachers really care about the students. The principal knows everyone's name, student and parent. It's a small school, but that only increases the feeling of being at home. The whole school is like one big family. The curriculum is advanced, and can sometimes become overwhelming. Don't worry, though. The teachers are willing to take time out of their schedule to help the student with whatever they don't understand. Hopefully, I will be going to Walter Payton College Prep, Jones College Prep, or Whitney Young High. I also love the extracurricular activities. There are so many of them. This is definitely a great school for your children.

My daughter is now in 8th grade at Keller. This is absolutely the kind of school everyone wants their child to go to. The entire staff is amazing, they know each family personally. I was amazed at the level of personal attention given to not only my child, but to me. There is genuine concern about your child's wellbeing at this school. As others have said, it is one big happy family and it gets better as your child progresses through the grade levels. My daughter will go on to a great high school and college and will be very well prepared because of the wonderful education she is recieving at Keller. Every school should be like this!!

I am a new parent at keller with a child in the 1st grade. I love the school, 1st grade teacher, and the principal. there have been several activities at the school for students/parents that explain what the expectations of achievement are, how you can help your child succeed at the school, and resources that are available to the child/family. the school atmosphere has been very supportive (like one big happy family between teacher, students, and parents). the homework for my first grader consists of various subjects and projects that we work on. the language arts consists not only of spelling words and writing sentences, my child has to recognize the subject and predicates of the sentences. the reading component consists of identifying main ideas and recognizing supporting details. so I feel that my child is not just 'reading', my child has to actually comprehend the text. I would recommend keller.

My daughter attends Keller and the teachers as well as the staff really show care and compassion for your child. When my child, or any child, gets a grade of an A the Principal herself writes a note on the childs paper and tells them that they did a great job. The principal and teachers are very involved in each childs life. The children has a sense of proud when attending Keller. The work that they give my child that is in the first grade is the same work that her 3rd grade cousin is working on, and her cousin live in Naperville. It is not enough I can say about Keller, but the whole staff is amazing and I love it.

I love this school. Everyone cares about me. My teachers meet with me on their own time, just so I can get extra help or more challenging work when I need it. I love going to student council meetings, poms, basketball, math, science , Spanish and lang. arts. My teachers make me excited about learning. It is the best school ever.

I am a new student at Keller. I like this school much better than my old school, Lenart Regional Gifted Center. At Keller the teachers, kids, and the principal are nice to everyone in the building and parents. Teachers go at a normal pace; if you don't understand a concept, they take time out of the lesson to explain it to the class. At Lenart lots of the staff, especially the principal, are mean to kids and parents. The curriculum is accelerated at least 2 years in all subjects. You might think that this type of school is good for your child, but it is way too hard and stressful for most kids if not all-even A students. It becomes horrible in 4th grade when you do departmental learning.
