My son graduated class of 2013.it w a s the best four years as a parent and student. M y son was involved with many clubs and has been involved with a group of friends which as of today they still hang with each other. Kellenberg is truly a school that never sleeps. To this day my son goes up and visit. Kellenberg has gotten my son ready for college. I as parent miss the school very much.

It's only my 2nd day here but I'm already loving it, the girls are NOT snotty or limited to one group at all, everyones so family like and willing to become friends with you. I think what really made me like this school more is the fact i DIDN'T make the cheerleading team. I opened my eyes to all of the cool clubs that almost everyone can get a club they like. I made some really good friends already and i'm looking forward to making more. But on a side note, some of the teachers are EXTREMELY strict when it comes to some classroom rules. A girl was late on the first day, and when asked why she just explained that she got lost and the teacher said that it wasn't an excuse. It was the 1ST DAY!! You just have to know your teachers rules and remember every teacher is different with how they handle things. Goodluck and you'll love it here!

As parents, we feel the school admisinstration does a poor job as advocates for their students.Our son worked extremely hard 4 years in their honors program and is a member of the National Honor Society.2 days before graduation, he was denied the right to display his hard work to peers and family and was almost denied the right to walk at graduation because of a medical emergency that prohibited from attending his Sr sendoff.We had spoken to the administration about the situation and my son went to the school the following morning to explain what had happened.He was advised to write a letter of apology for not getting on the bus to attend the Sr sendoff. Saturday morning we were told he was permitted to walk but they would not allow him to wear the Gold National Honor Society sash.We asked to speak to the school principal and were directed to contact the schools attorney.At the Graduation ceremony, they did not announce that he was a member of their honors program or that he was a member of the National Honor Society.This is our 3rd child that has attended the school but will be our last.This school has let us down. I'm pretty sure that this in not what JESUS would do.

As a parent, I wanted to send my child to a school where they will be cared for and prepared for college. After much research, I saw that many Catholic schools are all preaching the same thing: "best 4 years of my life", "one big family here". All of that is great, but the statistics are more important. After talking to there admistration, I found out that Kellenberg's SAT scores are quite higher than the state average. With over 1/3 of the school scoring 400+ points higher than the NY average, I was immensely impressed. I also was told that the other two thirds of the school score around 200+ points higher.These statistics prove that Kellenberg is truly an exceptional school. I also was impressed with the amount of schlarships given, another great quality of KMHS. The school promotes discipline and working hard which I like. After making the decision on sending my son to Kellenberg, I have been truly impressed with the academics. They are VERY challenging, and quite harder than my daughters public school work and my son's work in Trinity.(he wasn't accepted into KMHS).After all, I have been very impressed with the school and look to send my youngest there.

Kellenbergs such a good school! For all of you looking up reviews because I know the chsee or COOP is coming up but it's not bad at all. I attended the open house a year ago and thought "how scary this school?!" but i love it. i'm so glad my parents pushed me to go here. At first I hated it. It's school. But i think going to a catholic grammer school helped since friends that use to go to public school of mine were struggling a lot with the rules. I was personally so scared to even move in class or talk to anyone but i joined activities and got use to it and remember all these kids around you are thinking the same thing so don't sweat it. My brother and sister both went to this school and they loved it so don't worry and lastly I want to say i'm so happy i didn't go to Holy Trinity because if i did I probably wouldn't be doing as good as i am now. GOOD LUCK EVERYONE AND COME TO KELLENBERG. THE BIGGEST TIP IS TO GET INVOLVED!!! all the other reviews are from people who probably didn't get involved or did horrible in school but just keep up your studies and join activities!

Kellenberg is superb! The teachers are total professional, but it is crystal clear that they TRULY care about their students as well. My third child just started today and he loves it. While it is very challenging academically, every teacher my children have had have made themselves easily and abundantly available. My oldest is doing extremely well in college now and I credit Kellenberg for preparing her so well. If you are a troublemaker, this is probably not the school for you, as it will not be tolerated. As a parent of kids who don't get in trouble, Im thrilled the tolerance level for those who do is very low. My children LOVE Kellenberg, as do I. I feel the faculty and staff treat the students with great respect and live in a Christ-like manner. Well done, Kellenberg!

Kellenberg has been a dream come true for me :). I have had quite a different experiencefrom the girl below me. I came from a not so good district where bullying was highly apparen't and the academics were poor. I needed a place to go where I can be the best and kellenberg really did that for me. The academics are challenging and the school is very disciplined. The deans are very strict and enforce every rule. The comps or finals were very challenging. Each one had like 300 questions and many essays with each one. This realllly prepares for colllege. Just look at where the students go when they graduate. they attend these great university's on big scholarships too. Another reason I went to kmhs! As for the students. I found them very open and kind. I'd say only 1% of the school is that typical snobby rich kid type. The other 99% were cool, kind and really friendly. Its really easy to make friends here. I love this school and the clubs and sports and friends here!! :)

I started out freshman year at Kellenberg. I was so excited to attend this school because I was going to be in the Honors track. I was looking forward to making new friends and trying new activities. A couple of days into the school year I started thinking "What did I get myself into?" Most of the girls were very snotty, definitely not family like. I faced some of the worst experiences of my life at Kellenberg. Finally after a couple of months of begging my parents to let me switch schools, they did. Sometimes I think maybe I was doing something wrong, but this school DEFINITELY does not live up to it's high status. I didn't find that the teachers cared about us individually, except for one. I wish that Kellenberg was all I expected it to be, and I'm incredibly sad that it wasn't.

Kellenberg Memorial High School is an absolutely incredible place. Kellenberg has solid academics and excellent sports and activities. Kellenberg's stunning campus features all artifical-turf fields, three breathtaking courtyards lined with fish ponds,four chapels,and wonderful science and computer rooms. cant wait to start Junior year, the kids at Kellenberg are the most friendly,helpful student body found anywhere. (a known characteristic of the school) But Kellenberg is not for everyone, Kellenberg is very demanding and the classes are very challenging, If you are driven to succeed and have a desire to learn you'll love this school. But It all pays off, every year the graduating class receives over 2,000 scholarships and grants, and consistently over 99.6% of the graduates will head to college. Kellenberg is like one big family with some of the most outgoing teachers and faculty anywhere. I my self am very involved and don't want to leave at the end of the day. Talk to someone about it because just about everyone knows someone who goes to K-Berg. Kellenberg truly changed who I am as a person and so many graduates say "It's been the best four years of my entire life".

I had one of the worst experiences of my life at Kellenberg.the staff treated me unjustly and made false accusations about me. The punishments just started getting unreasonable and I ended up in detention every day.Everything proceeded to get worse and I started to get bullied. The staff basically promotes bullying.DONT GO HERE DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY PS I had to leave In the beginning of the year

As a recent alumni of this school, I can honestly say that this school helped to mold me into the person I am today. Regardless of the cliche nature of that statement, I have to give credit where credit is due. I am an English major at a university, and Kellenberg definitely fostered my love for English. I will adhere to previous complaints about the school and say that, yes, they are right when it comes to math and science. These departments are not the strong suit of the school, but it is working on strengthening those sections to be comparable to those of English and History. The teachers were so helpful, and the family aspect of the school was one that was so nurturing and necessary, especially as an awkward freshman going to Catholic school for the first time in her life. My parents have sent all three of their children there, and I think that says a lot about the school because I think every parent only wants the best for their kids. Overall, my experience at Kellenberg is something that I will never forget. I made friends that I know will be in my wedding, and I gained self knowledge that I know I definitely wouldn't have been able to gain had I gone to public school.

Save your money and spend what will be your four year aggregated tuition cost of $30,000 elsewhere. The education that this school claims to propound is wholly inconsistent with the education your child will actually receive. I mainly direct this statement, like the previous review, at the school's lack of preparation for a college education in math and science. At orientations and the like, the school administrators will tell you apocryphal anecdotes about how their alumni are overly prepared for college, when in reality, they're at a major disadvantage. As a first year science student at a university, I'm entirely unprepared for my lectures and labs, and virtually exempt from competitive research opportunities because of that fact. Mind you that all of this bares on my dream of becoming a doctor which is now not only grim but potentially unreachable. I will admit that they provide your child with a great English and history education, but that's about where they stop. They: don't offer AP credit (even public schools do), exalt a antiquated/fallacious curriculum, and are unwilling to compromise on any account. Bottom line, if your child has professional dreams-- avoid Kellenberg.

If your child is interested in math or science or getting into an upper level college (any in the top 30), do not send them here. Kellenberg's lack of adequate preparation for college-level math and science courses is laughable. I have to say, Kellenberg did improve my writing immensely, but as for math skills, they were horrendous. I am a college student; my friends who went to public schools have a HUGE advantage over me in their knowledge and understanding of calculus, chemistry, and physics. Go look at a AP Chemistry, AP Biology, AP Physics, or AP Calculus test prep book. Kellenberg students learn roughly 1/2 of the total information. Plus, we NEVER DID A LAB. They will show you beautiful labs in a Kellenberg tour, but WE DID NOT USE THEM. I was in honors science for four years and I never had a dissection during class. My friends at other high schools who took AP sciences had at least 15 lab exercises during their year. I'm pretty sure I had two in Honors Chemistry. Completely ridiculous when my parents spent over $8,000 a year on my education. If I had AP credit in college, I could register for better classes earlier and even graduate early.

I hated Kellenberg Memorial High School when I attended. It was definately the worst four years of my life. I'm not a very religious person, but regardless, I could have adjusted better to the school environment if someone had reached out to help me. I have a social anxiety disorder that caused me to stand out from peers and consequently, caused me to be harrassed and teased by other students. I became very depressed because my mother was diagnosed with a disease, but nobody helped me. Sometimes, I felt like the faculty was also taking advantage of me there. I was so depressed because I thought the only way to make friends was to do what other people wanted me to do. I take responsibility for not standing up to myself, but I think the school and the faculty should have done more to help me. Only one teacher spoke to me about it, but that is not enough. The students are very obnoxious and think they are better than everyone else because they go to a private school. The education system is weak too because it limits the students' choice of electives and does not include an AP system for those who deserve it. I give this school a zero and do not recommend sending your children there.

I would like to respond to a post made on June 8, 2011. The reviewer said that his/her child would not be attending Kellenberg because the student "will be deprived of taking ANY AP classes." The reviewer fails to mention that any student who demonstrates a mastery in certain academic subjects may elect to take the Advanced Placement Exam in that subject area. The honors level courses at Kellenberg meet or exceed the standards for AP; one difference, however, is that Kellenberg will not compromise its devotion to educating the whole student by "teaching to the test," which is often a strategy in courses labled "AP." I am speaking as a parent whose child is a student at Kellenberg, a graduate of Kellenberg, and an AP English instructor at a public school.

I have a child entering her third year at Kellenberg and one about to enter for 6th grade. I have been very pleased with the school thus far. My daughter has thrived there, the teachers are open and available, the extracurricular activities cover a very broad range of interests. I was anxious about their reaction when my daughter injured herself just before final exams last year. The administration could not have been more accomodating and concerned about making things as easy as possible for her. It truly impressed me that their general 'strict compliance with school rules/policy' was so quickly put aside to make sure that the 'whole child' was getting what was necessary. This school is certainly not for everyone. We like the emphasis on doing whatever it is that you do the best that you can. This school offers my children high goals, and the means to reach them. It also offers a varied ways to broaden a student, and encourages independence and strong social bonds.

This is not a school that my other children will be attending. They really need to rethink their formula. Two thirds of the high school students will be deprived of taking ANY AP classes. This is a real drawback when applying for colleges. They rarely return phone calls, are somewhat out of touch and seem to be disinterested in receiving any feedback for improvement.

This school honestly has completely been over-the-top with several small things. Its adminstristration as well as its disciplinary advisors have been BEYOND close minded in a number of cases. It is extremely difficult to walk past a dean without being pointed out and ridiculed over a untucked shirt. If we, as students, even show a hint of personality or individuality we are punished unjustly. This school has made the 7 years I have spent there miserable, regardless of how many clubs I join and how many good marks I've gotten. If any child goes here make sure they know what the school is REALLY like.

This school is a fantastic school for my son. He loves to be in such a wonderful atmosphere and I feel safe sending my son there. He comes back consistently with good marks, but he always says that he always feels challenged and urged to study and become better. Teachers and faculty at Kellenberg Memorial are fair and responsible. The Kellenberg Memorial Program consists of many lessons to be learned that are educational, spiritual, and social. Our children come home educated and aware of what it is like in the world. I wish more schools could be like Kellenberg Memorial. In that all schools should know that good positive atmosphere creates better workers and students. Kellenberg Memorial is a shining example of what a school should be run like.

As a student, I love kellenberg. Everyone can feel the way I do as long as they get involved. Some feel that faith is pushed on you here, but I feel that it surrounds you in a conforting way and I wanted nothing more than to delve into the spiritual atmosphere the school offers. While I do love it here, the faculty has their favorite students who unfortunately get picked for every special nominated activity, whether they deserve it or not. The marianists are great, but are very stubborn. They dong accept that grades should be weighted and honors/ A1 should be rewarded for their track's difficulty. Other than that, the school is absolutely wonderful!!

I graduated from Kellenberg and I loved it! I wish I could turn back time to be there again. I have kept in touch with the majority of my friends from there. They are a very strict school; we knew what not to do. I went through 4 yrs without receiving any detention. If you behave, follow the rules, and work hard, you will have an amazing and fulfilling 4 yrs there. Any one who tried causing any trouble quickly received the consequences, so going to class was less stressful. I highly recommend this school!

I am a parent of a child who attended the Latin School. I believe that this is an excellent school that offers a Christ centered education. Sixth grade is very difficult for some students. My daughter did not acclimate to the school until my husband and I required our daughter to join an afterschool club (end of Oct). I do agree somewhat with another parent who wrote the teachers speak down to the students. Some of the Kellenberg alumni teachers do speak down with an authoritarian attitude to the children. A seminar or two on authority with out nastiness would be a good idea.

I am a Kellenberg Alumni and about to graduate college this May; I attened a Catholic College in Florida. Kellenberg was definitely a mixed bag. The work load was unnessasarily hard and only useful only if you're going to an Ivy League. Its attitude of demanding blind loyalty is often not consistent with the values brought forth from the Second Vatican Council. Having morals is good but the Church was made for the people, not the other way around.

I have two children at Kellenberg now and I wouldn't have them go anywhere else. They are both in the honors program and at times the workload is a little much but they do it without any complaints. I feel that they will both be well prepared to go off to college. In his Freshman year, my son said to me that he really felt like he belonged at KMHS and has continued to feel that way during his years there. He will be graduating next year and I believe he will be very sad when the time comes to leave. My daughter is quite shy but has started to come out of her shell, the trick is to get involved in after school activities so that you can meet people. Great school can't wait to send my youngest there.

Both of my children have atttended Kellenberg Memorial HS from the 7th grade. I remember hearing about it when my oldest was in the 5th grade and I took her out to an Open House. It was incredible. It is was that day that we decided that was the jr high/high school for our family. And it became a family affair. Yes the children attended class, joined sports teams, joined clubs and activities, but we were there every chance we got. Games, concerts, plays, Nat'l Honor Society Nights, Meet the Teacher nights, etc. We never missed one event. We were very proud of our children's accomplishments but we were also very happy to be there for our children's friends, also. And they both made terrific friends from all over the island. It is truly a remarkable school and I would recommend it to everyone.

As a Kellenberg graduate, I felt I was more prepared for college than some of my other college classmates. While at times the work load seems a bit much at Kellenberg, it prepares you for what is ahead at college. I loved Kellenberg and still miss it. You know a school is doing something right when your entire homeroom sings the last morning prayer video song together and cries at the end. I could not even dream of spending my four high school years at another school. Thank you Kellenberg for making me...well, me.

Kellenberg does prepare you for a succsesful and educational future, however, I feel that the level of strictness and discipline is over the top. I believe it to be ridiculous when student must serve detention for something as miniscule as forgetting an absent note or not having their top button buttoned, especially while some students are recieving the same punishment for far more disruptive actions. From experience when you are walking down the halls there is a presence of fear of recieving a punishment (even if you feel you have done nothing wrong). Ending on a positive note, the sports programs and extracurricular activities are outstanding at KMHS. Overall I am happy I went there.

Kellenberg is truly amazing. I go there know and I can't wait for school everyday. There are many clubs/ activities/ sports. I feel that I have to work hard to get high grades. Whoever said that the courtyards and the hallways don't know what there talking about. Everything is pretty neat and after about 1600 people in the hallways I would expect to find paper, pens, pencils, and other things on the floor but by the next morning everything is clean. Also, there is no metal detector because it is a private school and you don't really need it because there are teachers who watch the cars come in.

Very strict staff, too many rules, pointless reasons for getting in trouble, not as good as they say it is, DISGUSTING upkeep, courtyard is dirty and disgusting, so are hallways, dirty unsanitary birds roaming the courtyard, feses all over the courtyard, no security gaurds, anyone can bring a knife or a gun into school, no metal detectors or anything to keep students safe. Would not recommend it.

Our two children attended Kellenberg H.S. and it was the greatest years of their lives. They especially enjoyed the sports programs, and we were all very active participants in the activities. After graduation they went on to Hofstra University where they easily excelled, mostly due to the fact of the high academic background they brought with them. Our son is now a teacher, and uses the Kellenberg principles in his classroom, resulting in what has made him one of the most popular and requested teachers in his school. My daughter was a member of the Kellenberg Gymnastics and Cheerleading teams, and then coached the cheerleaders while she was in college. She loved working at Kellenberg with the kids so much it prompted her to go to Chiropractic School specializing in sports conditioning for peak performance. We strongly believe that the excellent values of Kellenberg was the main factor of their success.

I have two children in Kellenberg, one in the High School, and the other in the Latin School. Kellenberg is what all schools should be. If you were to visit the school during period change, you would be very impressed at how orderly, and controlled the students pass through the halls. There is before, and after class help for any student requesting it. To say the least, the academic structure is the best that I have seen in any school,public or private. The school activities are endless, you name it, Kellenberg has it.Thank God my children are in the best school around. The administration is strict, but fair, and on target. Whenever I need to get in touch with a faculty member,they are always willing to address any concern. Kellenberg is *****, (five star).

Kellenberg Memorial is an excellent institution in all aspects. My son has just entered his freshman year of college and says that he was very prepared thanks to Kellenberg. He is at a top national university and explains that things the other students struggle with he understands because of his Kellenberg education. While he was never musical or artistically inclined he did participate in many religious and extracurricular activities. Along with academics the religious opportunity and atmosphere is the primary reason I would suggest Kellenberg to any parent.

Graduated in 1999. Learned more in Kellenberg than I did my four years of college. Excellent school, excellent curriculum, excellent teachers. Every day I appreciate my parent's sacrifice to put me through school.

This is, hands down, the most wonderful school. My son had the best four years of his life! He is well prepared for college. I will send my next two children there.

I am a KMHS Alumnus, Class of '98. I can not say enough wonderful things about this school. I had the best High School experience! Not many of my friends from college can say the same. Wonderful, concerned teachers and administration. Every sport and club you can imagine. Respect is key! I would recommend Kellenberg to anyone looking for a quality education and life full of fond memories and good friends.

Thr 5th of 5 children currently attend K'berg. 4 have graduated and all of have gone on to college. If you want a school that doesn't tolerate a lackadaisical approach to life, then this is the place for your child. All students are strongly encouraged to do their very best. KMHS offers a well rounded experience from academics, clubs, service and religion. KMHS will help your child become a more responsible person. In the words of Fr. Philip, 'We want our students to aspire to greater things'.

I think Kellenberg is a great school - academically, sports , clubs and environment. I would recommend this school without any hesitation. I have one that graduated in 2001 and currently one in 11th.

Have a child in 10th grade at Kellenberg; his brother graduated this past year and is attending college this year. Kellenberg is the best choice we could possibly have made for our sons. The education is wonderful and the clubs and other activities are tremendous. Wish I could say something at least neutral about Kellenberg but cannot. Anyone looking for a Catholic education on Long Island owes it to their child to visit the school during one of their open houses; seeing is believing!

Wonderful school. Both of our children graduated and were very well prepared for college and LIFE!The preists,brothers and lay teachers set a fine example for the students. All my children's friends loved the school even though it was very demanding. The set a very high standard and the students live up to it. I wish more schools were like Kellenberg.

I currently have three children enrolled in Kellenberg, one is a senior, one a sophomore, and one entering 6th grade in the Latin School. I have had nothing but positive experiences with Kellenbeg. My children love the environment as well as the staff. Good academics are encouraged by everyone including the children's peers. All in all, it's a great great place for the children to grow into the adults they need to be when they go off to university and for the rest of their lives. We couldn't be happier.

I cannot say enough great things about this school. It is truly run by a professional staff of educators. Th faculty is involved with the students both academicaly and through after school activities. Sports programs are top notch. The faculity itself is just beautiful. It is worth every penny you pay in tuition.

Bolth of our older childreen go to Kellenberg. Our daughter is going into 11th. grade and has been there since 6th. grade. We have been very happy with the school. It is a very wholistic approach to education. They look at the whole student,not just the accademic side. The teachers are involved with the after school activities and sports programs. They get to know the kids on different levels. There are many clubs and activities for the kids to join and most districts offer a late bus.
