I've been a student at McKeel for a few years now. The first year there, 6th grade, I was shocked to find the uniforms so expensive. You have to pay for basically everything at McKeel. I do agree with other comments, about the school only wanting to be an A grade school. They have high expectations for ...  Read more

It seems that MOST of the normal day to day things are made to be so very difficult at McKeel, from obtaining the correct uniform (which is far above what a Target or Wal Mart uniform would be) to checking your child's grade, to understanding exactly what is expected of you. Communication is very poor, ...  Read more

I have been a student here at McKeel Academy for 3, going on 4 years. It started off okay and has had its ups and downs. When I first started I, nor my parents were told about the crazy uniform system at McKeel so I got in trouble quite often(you can get kicked out for multiple uniform problems). The ...  Read more

We've been a McKeel family for 9 years, my son started in kindergarten and just left middle school. Years ago this school was great but has steadily went down hill. They really only seem to care about being an "A" school and what looks good for the McKeel name. If you are rich and can support the school ...  Read more

I am a special ed. teacher. I work with students with special needs. My son is ADHD and has attended McKeel with his sister for several years. McKeel has very high standards academically, socially and personally. A check system keeps track of misbehavior and disorganization. You can expect about three ...  Read more

I just transferred to Mckeel late this year and find it VERY stricter and harder than any other school I've been to so far. Their educational expectations are set very high which makes it SUPER hard if you transfer in late. I have had problems with 2 teachers so far. I was a very overwhelmed with all ...  Read more

I am the parent of a student whom no longer attend McKeel by way of a less than half credit. Our son has attended this school since middle school and I have found that several teachers will not return emails or phone calls. Our son had a history teacher he was afraid of as a result of hero yelling in ...  Read more

This school is a joke. It is nasty. I don't think they ever clean it. There is spots where the ceiling has holes in it, One of the classrooms had mold in it all last year, the walls inside look like they need a good paint job. If you have money then your kids will be treated different then the kids that ...  Read more

I currently have two students at McKeel, one is in 7th and one in 11th grade. I have been involved with this school for six years. I find the teachers and staff to be very helpful and caring. The administration is also very concerned for the students. I feel I made and excellent decision when my ...  Read more

Our two youngest children have been in the McKeel system for the past six years, and are now in middle school at McKeel Academy. We feel so fortunate to have them in what we believe is one of the finest secondary school in Polk County, including any of the private schools. As a parent of two students ...  Read more
