    We are VERY pleased with the Keller ISD so far and this school in particular. The teachers are very positive with our children and both our boys have scored commended performance in all areas on the TAKS test. I highly recommend this school to any prospective parents/students.

    My son was in fifth grade last year at SKI and had two excellent teachers Mrs. Owen and Ms. Self. He loved school and we are looking forward to another year at South Keller.
