    I was an honors student at Raymond S. Kellis and my English teacher caused me so much mental stress that I had to change schools more than half of her class ended up failing because she didn't know how to grade papers.My family has gone through so much for the teacher's lack of support my Biology teacher would always show up for first hour late you're better off going somewhere else.

    Does anyone know if Raymond Kellis High School has a ROTC program and do they have any astronomy or aero space clubs?

    I am currently a senior attending Kellis for the fourth year. The student body displays exceptional "Cougar Pride" and demonstrates it well through pep rallies and games. The best part of the school is the teachers of course. They all treat you like family if you treat them with the respect they deserve. The administration have been great help since day one. The counselors are awesome at what they do and try to provide the best for their students. If I were a parent I would have my kids attend this high school.

    My daughter is a freshman at this high school. I have become very disappointed and mistrusting with administration when it comes to bullying and harassment of a student. They say they are proud to be bully free however when it is reported to them the harassed student deals with retaliation from the students who victimized them. And they wonder why my child hesitates to say anything anymore. The school has since focused the problem in my child and blames her and myself as a parent. Way to go Kellis!

    Raymond S. Kellis H.S. has an exceptional reputation in the community for quality education and I cant attest to this as my son has attended since his sohpomore year. He states he would not want to go anywhere else to finish out his H.S. education. And even though we are planning to move we have chosen to put it off until he has "walked across the stage."

    Raymond S. Kellis is an exceptional school with a loving and caring community and environment. The teachers here are one of a kind spending numerous hours preparing easy to learn lesson plans. Making friends is simple and easy as everyone is on the lookout for new people. Never feel left out with RSK! Overall one of the best campuses in the district with its cleanliness. The arts academics and dance departments are truly amazing. Recommended for anyone.

    This is my daughter's sophmore year at the school. She really like the School Teachers and Students. I have NOT heard any complain from my daughter's.

    I am a junior at Raymond S. Kellis and I absolutely love it! The community is a family rather than a bunch of cliques. The special education department is really embraced at our school. Many AP and honors classes are provided and are being added. Academics is not the only focus though. Kellis has a strong art department that excels. The teachers are wonderful and are really amazing at what they do. I would not want to go any where else!

    I am currently a junior at RSK and have attended since freshman year. I absolutely LOVE Kellis and would never want to transfer or attend another school. The teachers are amazing and the principal and counselors give really good advice. I also created a club which they made really easy and am on the varsity tennis team.

    First Year at Kellis. 3 Months in and not a single problem! The student body is amazing. Everyone is full of spirit and cheer the marching band is phenomenal the football team is one of the best in the district and the teachers are just incredible. COUGAR PRIDE! Is it in you?

    Out of all Peoria Schools this school has the best sense of community and morals. With the small amount of students attending compared to others such as Peoria High teachers and students get more one on one time and personalized attention. The school is well kept and not to mention has an extremely talented performing arts program in the areas of dance media production and art. They also hold the title of Girls State Basketball Champions of 2009 in their respective division. Go Cougars!

    I attending RSK my four years of high school as the first graduating class. This school is excellent! The teachers are amazing and Mr. Mattern (internship teacher) even got me into a scholarship program at ASU. The teachers are all very encouraging and Mrs. Miranda puts her full effort into making Kellis the very best! I could not have felt safer at this school. Next year I will have two sisters taking after me and attending this school. The Kellis staff could not care more about each student's future. I plan to teach in the special education department once I graduate ASU!

    This school and those pricinciples are the best. I see then at so many events do they have kids of there own?

    Cougar Pride is it in you? Own it! I was apart of the first graduating class at kellis. The school is amazing! Not only are the parents involved but the Teachers are aswell. When you go to Kellis you don't only feel like your around other people but you also feel at home as well. The teachers give you time to show you if you don't understand it. The clubs help you meet new friends and life friends including Cougartown. Altho Kellis should have more support from others for how well they treat their students and the staff is doing a wonderful job. But if the principal maranda she could of been involved with a lot more stuff other than football. Kellis was wonderful it has really encouraged me to double major in education and work for kellis one day!

    I have two children at Kellis and my son will be going next year. I am very happy with the overall education that my daughters have received so far. Both of them are in honors or advanced classes and feel they are appropriately challeneged--especially by Mrs. Ross-WOW! The atmosphere is so very welcoming--My son cannot wait to try out for the football and basketball teams next year. We already have had state championships in several sports and the school is only five years old! My only complaint would be that the district and the city of Glendale tends to treat Kellis as the ugly stepchild--PAY attention --Kellis will do great things!
