I have two children the attend ardrey kell h.S. And this has been the worst school year of their life! They absolutely hate this school. Their educational needs are not being met at ardry kell, especially our child with an iep. If your child has an iep please plan on paying for outside help! The standards are set very high for the students, that the staff/teachers do not follow themselves. I wish the people who choose to teach really enjoyed teaching. That hasn't been our experience here at ardry kell h.S. The mindset for diversity is very closed and the teachers don't even bother to hide it. We will not continue to put up with this type of unprofessionalism. God bless you on your seach for the best school for your child.
Ardrey Kell is close minded school that doesn't give students the opportunity to expand their knowledge or let them socialize and experience a real high school experience.
I cannot tell you how sad I am to write this! I have 2 children in Ardrey Kell , I feel the Teachers I have worked with are in it for a check ! Not all but most, these days anyone can get a teaching job as thier last resort because of the damand for teachers (bad salary) it's a last option job that our children pay for! I have only meet 1 teacher in the 2 years my family has been there that loves to teach! the staff in the front office are great! I just love them! If you want your children to excel, choose a diffrent school! just do your homework and research as much as you can! your children are counting on you! As for me, my children are going to a privite school next year! God bless!
The teachers are outstanding and work very hard to give their students the best education. Unfornuately, the class sizes are too large. This huge school makes it difficult for newcomers from other school districts to assimilate.
School is not ready for the growing diverse population that is relocating to the area. Needs to be more aware of school districts from the north and respect those differences which are oftentimes superior
My daughter started school at Ardrey Kell in January, 2008. I was extremely impressed with the tour of the school, it's immaculate condtion and the order in which it is run. The moral of all the administrators is so high, dedicated to educating each and every student with a smile. I am proud to be part of the Knight Family!
Coming into Ardrey Kell as a freshman, the first class that would travel through all four rigorous years of highschool at the establishment, I have to say that Ardrey Kell is very welcoming. The teachers are the type that want to teach. They don't teach for the money. Each one adores teaching and brings new life to the art. Ardrey Kell is truly a gem in the Charlotte Mecklenburg School system.
I am a current student at Ardrey Kell and am heavily involved in nearly every facet of the institution. With participation in theatre, art, soccer, tennis, debate, and student council, atop a heavy academic courseload (10 APs over my junior and senior year) I feel that I have come to understand the institution that is Ardrey Kell quite well. It is a very clean, efficient, and overall rigorous institution, yet as a student I am left wanting more. Having come from from another CMS high school (Providence) after two years I also feel that I am in a prime situation to compare schools. All in all Providence offers more academic options, has a more diverse student body, and most of all has more character as an institution. Given the opportunity, I most likely would have stayed at Providence my junior year, though Ardrey Kell certainly has a promising future.
I think this is the greatest High School in Charlotte NC. The school has not long history but has excellent teachers, counselors, secretaris and principal who have ardent love for their students and don't mind communicating with parents. Plus excellent school facilities and substantial corriculums. My daughter really loves this school teachers and students. Nothing left to be desired in Education.
