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.
This school is so cohesive in its efforts to keep our kids on top. The principal has a clear message and the staff implement it. Plus.....it's fun!
It's the most special school ever. The teachers care so much... and the parents really form a community. My daughter loves going to school every day!
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 is a place where every child is allowed to explore and reach their full potential. Opportunities abound for extra curricular activities & teachers willing to work with parents to see that the needs of their child are met.
My grandchildren are achieving wonderfully at Keller and the total environment is nurturing and homey. It is not just a school it is a home away from home
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.
Keller school has amazing teachers and staff. Not only are they educating the children but they are helping them become strong individuals with a passion fro education. The staff is amazing and parent involvment is highly encouraged and appreciated. The education the children are getting at this school is amazing, the proof is in the test scores.
The principal and teachers do everything they can to prepare students for high school and beyond. The school maintains a friendly environment for every student; parents feel welcomed, too!!!
Keller has everything our children need to be the world class citizen. It help the children to be the best they can be. It is also a welcoming environment for me as a parent of two children. From the school principle to the aucilary staff are all very friendly and nice people.
It has a curriculum that challenges the gifted child, but also has options available to develop the WHOLE child. I've never seen a bunch of intellectually talented children so genuinely happy.
Keller cares about the students and the teach them to think out of the box. The schools doesn't limit the learning
Keller in more than a school, it brings student, faculty, staff & families together to work t=for the good of all students
Keller understands children and how they learn. They provide an accelerated curriculum to challenge the students.
Great School! Awesome Principal! Wonderful Staff! Dedicated Parents! Extraordinary Students!
Keller is a diamond in the rough that is know as Chicago Public Schools. Excellent staff and administration. Parents are able to partner with this institution of excellence, sit down at the table and have a voice that is heard.
Keller is such a close knit school. Everyone knows everyone and when you walk in the door you are welcome. The staff is in very close contact with the parents and always willing to help.
Keller is the perfect school and should be the #1 school in the country because the school has a phenomenal & dynamic principal with excellent leadership, caring teachers, a passionate and very involved parent community, in addition to wonderful students that are respectful to one another and are extremely bright. I couldn't desire a better place for my child. Keller is the PERFECT School by all standards.
Keller is a family united for one purpose, to provide quality education and fun activities for the benefit of the students.We are lead by an awesome Principal and staff who's every action supports their goal, reaching beyond excellence.
