Fantastic school, beautifully maintained, caring staff and teachers... The Athletics programs are great and there is a lot of school pride among the student body. The Marching Band and Guard programs are awesome and the band leadership is top-notch!

It's OK. Nice facility because it's fairly new. Not a ton of discipline/student behavior problems. Athletics are above average. Academically it's mediocre.

I am about to be a junior. The staff is great, the teachers tend to be awesome, though there are slight issues for scheduling.

Kell is an excellent school that prepares students for college and has a super athletic program. My oldest is a sophomore at Georgia Tech and doing quite well, which is proof of Kell's ability to prepare students for college.

This school is great. The Fine Arts department us absolutely excellent and amplifies the schools and counties knowledge of music education.

My daughter has really enjoyed attending high school at Kell H.S. She is a junior and will be graduating a semester early thanks to the teachers and guidance counselors. I've personally seen teachers go up and beyond to help a student (s) out! This is over all a great school!!
