    "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. If your kid is a high achiever consider one of the Cobb County magnet schools. All of them are a step above Kell for academics. I have one kid here and one in a magnet school and there is a big difference... not so much in the quality of the teachers but more in the level of expectations of the students from the administration, teachers, and each other."

    "We transferred from out of state several months ago. Our son is in 9th grade and has been very happy at Kell. The staff in the guidance office went above and beyond to make this transition a smooth one. This is a great school! The school itself is beautiful and well kept. Highly recommend Kell!"

    "Kell is a very nice school, however they don't really spend too much time keeping up the facilities - landscaping, track, etc. & extra materials that have been stacked up for years (cinder blocks etc) The county seems to 'pick on' this school more & make them an example for schedule changes a lot - Kell handles it very well although it is very frustrating for the students to have constant changes each year. Like any school there are those teachers that need to retire already, but most of the staff is wonderful - the math department could be better - with the exception of a couple of teachers - several don't know the curriculum & want the kids to teach themselves."

    "If I could rate Kell with no stars I definitely would. The administration lacks any kind of strength whatsoever and the kids get away with murder. My child comes home and tells me about the antics that go on and how some students are able to roam the halls and basically do nothing in class. Teachers are only rewarded if they 'know' higher up people. My child works hard and she gets upset that children who don't even do any work and back talk the teachers pass as well because of something called AYP??? If I were you, and I had the choice of where my child went to high school, Kell would definitely be on the bottom of the list! They also need a new principal, one who's younger and more in tune with today's youth!"

    "I am about to be a junior. The staff is great, the teachers tend to be awesome, though there are slight issues for scheduling. Most importantly, though, also why I took a star off of my review, is the lack of consistency. I have never had the same schedule 2 years in a row. First it was a mixed block and traditional, then a mixed block and traditional with the traditional getting block days twice a week, now it is a block traditional, similar to college, with 8 classes all together every other day blocks. It is UTTERLY confusing. Otherwise, it's a pretty good school."
