We left this school at the end of last year. . It was our first experience with the district and we were very disappointed with the teacher and especially administration. We will not return even though we reside in the district.

Our experience at Kellogg, was OK. We had one horrible experience and have left Gull Lake schools because of it. When you have a child that has any kind of problem the public schools, do not really have good solutions. What they recommended was way off base. And now our son is doing fantastic at at charter school. We still have one child at the HS and that experience has been medicore at best. current gull lake parent

Gull Lake Schools are some of the best in Michigan. My daughter spent her elementary years at Kellogg Elementary and had an outstanding experiece. The teachers were balance, concerned about student achievement and socialization and provided wonderful memories for my student. I would not hesitate to endorse Gull Lake Schools. Of course, parent involvement is what makes any school system work and you need to make efforts to help the staff understand needs of your students. Education works best when supported at home.

Kellogg Elementary is a very warm and friendly enviroment. They use different programs to encourage friendly interaction between the students. My children feel very comfortable and happy when they are at school. I think that Kellogg Elementary is a wonderful place for a child to begin their academic career.

At the end of the next school year, both of our children will have attended Kellogg Elementary from Kindergarten through 3rd grade. This school provides specialized instruction for academically talented children as well as those who are experiencing difficulty. As with any school, teachers do vary and some are better than others, but overall our experience has been very positive. They have music, sports, and art classes. They have a science fair in which the children have the option of participating. As with any school, parent involvement is critical, but I feel that our participation in our children's education has always been welcomed. The principal is absolutely top notch. She is assessable and willing to assist in addressing any concerns you may have. It is a small school with an active PTO. If you want to be involved there are many opportunities to do so.

I attended G.L. Schools and survived. I enrolled one child in this school and was very dissapointed. I believe that high expectations for students is critical, but the teachers I encountered were off the hook. I withdrew and went else where. Too bad for G.L. because with school of choice and a wealthy community base they need to work with the families they've got!

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.

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.
