Kellam High School has a dedicated staff that is both highly qualified and highly committed to the success of our students. Our students are given ample opportunities, both academically and socially, to expand their horizons and challenge themselves - in and out of the classroom. We are fortunate to have a school community that is not only supportive of Kellam, but also actively involved in the educational process.
Kellam has been a recipient of the National Gold Council of Excellence Award for three consecutive years and boasts a 95.23 percent on time graduation rate.
All throughout their education but especially here in high school, we prepare students for success after they leave our classrooms – whether their future is attending college, joining the workforce or serving the nation with our military.
As Knights, we are a proud community of learners and together we work hard to ensure all students meet their full potential.
