Kell High School is a pretty good place to be! The teachers are helpful, and the facilities are very well kept. The student environment is heavily involving and there are many oppurtunities here! One thing to note, however, is that the current block schedule system in place can pose a threat to many student's desired class schedule or rigor.

Love the diversity, actually prepares you for the real world. Teachers are fabulous and care that each student is challenged and reach their own individual potential. Love the Administration!
I enjoyed my last 4 years at Kell High School. This school has brought me a great education, great friends, and great administrators that have helped me through a lot. As a senior, I faced the nervousness of college and college readiness. With the help from my teachers and administration, I have no applied to 1 college. I have narrowed down my choices and without Kell High School, I would be super behind on everything. The only thing I would change about Kell High School is the lack of hardworking from most of the students. I wish every student would work hard, but over the past view years our school has grown in our average testing scores, which is hope for improvement.
