About This School
Magnet schools are public schools that offer a specialized curriculum or educational philosophy, often with a specific focus or theme. Magnet schools promote student diversity because they are open to students outside the normal school district boundaries and often attract high caliber students through competitive programs.

Kelso (William H.) Elementary School Reviews
I THINK KELSO IS A WONDERFUL SCHOOL MY SONS WENT THERE BACK IN 1982 . MY OLDEST GRANDCHID GRADUATED FROM THERE LAST YEAR. MY YOUNGEST GRANDCHILD IS ATTENGING THERE NOW. THEY ARE ALL HONOR STUDENTS BECAUSE OF THE CARE AND ARE DEDICATION OF THE STAFF AND TEACHERS. THE STRENGTHS OF KELSO ARE READING AND MATH THE ONLY WEAKNESS THAT I SEE ARE THE ORGINZATION OF PICK UP AFTER SCHOOL AND THATS ON THE PARENTS PART THEY STAND IN THE WAY WHERE THE STUDENTS COME OUT BLOCKING THERE WAY AT TIMES.
