    My kids go to first grade and I am really happy with the teachers principal and all the support staff. This is a loving and nurturing environment with high quality instructors.

    Great teachers who provides safe and friendly environment for students. Teachers not only teach academics but also good ethics. Children are all nice to each other and it is great to see older ones take care of younger ones.

    Keller is a school where they want family involvement. From parents to grandparents you will see volunteers coming and going. The staff is great and I can tell they enjoy working there and with each other. I appreciate they way they group kids for reading so they can excel and feel comfortable at the level they are. Great great place!

    Keller is an amazing school with a dedicated staff and parent community. It takes a village to raise our children well and we work together at Keller to do just that.
