This school is bad, They wait until e middle of the school to give homework help to students at the end of the school year instead of the beginning.., Than when they do get the homework they don't get the teachers that teach the subject the students need help with they just get any teachers, they favore students and the Minstors play with students like its outside of school.. They play "body shots" with students.. Long story short.. WORST SCHOOL IN ILLINOIS!

Kellar Middle School has improved over the years. It is a new principal and staff. The motto "One School, One Rule", Success Nothing Less" has taken off and the students believe that success is what is being portrayed at the school. I like the new changes and I am looking forward to the new school year.

I am a student at Kellar school. I'm a graduating 8th grader and i dont think i could have had any more fun in any other school other than Kellar Middle school. I like some of the teachers and we have a new principle, Dr. Hunt. Dr. Hunt can be hard but she a great principle and i know she cares alot.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

The test results by subgroup show how the designated group of students is performing in comparison to the general population.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 4 and 7 in science. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

In 2013 the Illinois State Board of Education raised the performance expectations for the ISAT in reading and math. These expectations have been adjusted to better align with the Common Core State Standards, a multi-state initiative that established year-by-year guidelines outlining the grade-specific skills and content students need to stay on the path to college and career readiness. The higher expectations of the new standards will result in a downward shift of where students rank in meeting or exceeding standards.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
