    As a parent you send your child to school to get a good education And also you expect for the school to keep you inform of changes . The principal changes her mind like every other day regarding policies and procedures. The school lacks extra curricular activities. And the homework is repetitive. My child graduated 8th grade I will see just how prepared my daughter was come fall. I understand teaching starts at home but I feel the school should pick up wehere I left off. Please be prepare to view future post to come especially not they school is in the process of a merger. They say it's not a merger but trust me that's what it is. I am sure some of the students from the Bethome will be attending as well. I hope they got the stuff together and by the way the spanish teacher is terrible they need to reconsider bring her back seriously. By the way Ms. Freeney is wonderful she should be the principal and Ms. Browder should be the assistant.

    As a student of kellman I can proudly say I love the way my teachers teach me. First my teachers explain the work out of our books and then they begin break it down to people who are having trouble understanding the work. One of our rules in my math class is nobody does work until everybody understands the work. I can truly say that my teachers make sure that NO CHILD IS LEFT BEHIND!!!

    As a student of kellman school I could say that kellman has change but the teachers stay the same with the love of each teacher and the support the student can get some were i have also learned that if you are a great student its because of the hardwork and effort the teachers and parents have put to helping the student.

    Kellman is one of the most under rated schools in Chicago. The school provides a very high quality education to their students despite lack of participation from some parents. Students who attend this school get the benefits of a private school atmosphere in a public school setting. Good behavior is pushed by all staff members and students who leave Kellman school go the top high schools in Chicago. Kellman is a safe haven in the impoverished North Lawndale area.

    I used to be a student at Kellman and I was taught the best. Yes Kellman has changed but the love didn't. If i had a choice to be back in grammar school I would choose Kellman to go back to

    Kellman has changed. I think all the teachers do their best to educate all the children but often times the classrooms seem overcrowded. I think that the students seem like they have forgotten their manners which directly affects how they view their education.

    Kellman School is not the same school that it used to be when I started working there. The curriculum used to be very very rigorous and a lot more monitoring used to take place where today it is not monitored at all by administration. THe older veteran teachers seem to have that passion for the teaching and the students whereas the newer teachers don't seem to have the inclination to really find the students needs. Hopefully there will be some changes and Kellman will go back to its original state of being which oozed over with respect integrity and loyalty to learning!

    As a parent of a child who attends Kellman and also an educator in the field of early childhood I love my child's school. Kellman has always allowed me to be comfortable in the school. Where most near-by schools do not allow parents to enter the school without them having an appointment.

    Let me start by saying I LOVE Kellman Corp Comm School s Ethics. The Principal Ms. Brenda Browder is a wonderful caring loving yet stern principal mother auntie bi g momma .whatever the children need her to be she is! She also what every parent is looking for in a Principal. I have a son who just graduated with very high scores in math and reading because of Kellman his is in Mentoring Engineering program with the University of Illinois and The McCormick Place he attends National Louis University summer gifted institute. I can go on about the about the opportunities that my son has been afforded because of Kellman. Mr. & Mrs. Kellman are wonderful and the entire staff has been great and believe me parents my child has always been smart but he was not the easiest to deal with but because the Kellman s Staff unconditional love we made it.

    My child has excelled here because he is encouraged to believe in his own abilities and he is exposed to a variety of things that most children are not. Students are afforded opportunities to be on the cutting edge of technology where each student receives their own Apple Mac laptop in grades PreK-8th and the 8th graders are allowed to keep theirs as a graduation gift! What other school do you know that would give students opportunities as such. My child loves it here and does not make excuses to stay home like he used to.
