South McKeel Academy Reviews

South McKeel Academy is top notch.. Lakeland is not a bad area but it's not Orlando. I'm having a hard time with deciding if I even want to move to Orlando & take the kids out of this school.. McKeel Academy goes from PK-12 one campus is PK-7 & the high school building is 8-12. They work with iPads from Kindergarten through 12th. They're constantly updating & bringing in new things for the kids to learn from. I don't wan to take my kids out.. But do I suck it up & stay in a city I no longer want to be in? Ahhhhh
