I went to this schiool in the 80's and it was a terrific school. Excellent! The teachers got involved in the children's lives not only in school but also in the community. I was involved in so many positive projects there was no time for foolishness. I think the problem has more to do with it now being a Pre K -8 grade school. Back then it was only an elementary school.

The teachers are okay. Most of the children don't really care about their education because of the way teachers grade them. I remember getting straight 100's on my report card for doing poor work and not turning in assignments. IF THEY WOULD ACTUALLY GRADE BASED ON GRADES MAYBE THE CHILDREN WOULD WANT TO TRY AND LEARN SOMETHING. WHEN THEY GO INTO THE REAL WORLD THEY WON'T KNOW ANYTHING OR WON'T BE ON THE SAME LEVEL AS THE OTHERS. The grading was some real B.S though and the way the staff spoils the kids is horrible :\ - Student @ GGK

george Kelson has a new administrator who is focused on the students success. There have been positive measurable changes this school year. The behavior issues are not as prevelant. Students have been reassessed and placed according to academic needs. With more parent involvement this school could be even better.

In my opinion this school is lacking student discipline. Students disrespect teachers and other students on a daily basis and nothing constructive is done. This is really the parents fault for their childrens behavior. But the school also needs to promote better behavior for a better learning atmosphere... And I truly think that it was a really bad idea to add middle school to this elementary school. The older children don't make the school any better.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
