Kelso's academic program is excellent focusing on the state requirements and preparing the students for state testing. The staff assist the students in areas of need based on the previous year state test. The student's state tests are looked at individually and as a whole grade level for need of improvement. Additional help to prepare the students for testing is arranged before school, after school and half of their lunch period. The principal, administrators and staff are helpful and concerned about the children's education and well being. Music is limited, however, a music director was contracted and taught the students to play the recorder. The students are honored with academic awards, attendance, student of the month, etc. The facility is a small version, but is clean and orderly. There is parent involvement, however, there is a need of more parent volunteers.
