He lives in Midway with his wife of 23 years, Jeana, where they’ve raised their three children: Grace, Jed and Maggie.

We are innovative and we care about kids learning at high levels. We Expect to Excel!

    Mr. Kelly’s Educational Philosophy:
    “My family has lived by a motto that I believe is very relevant in school and in life: Harvard Education, Army Discipline, and Disneyland Fun. I ask for our parents’ support and participation in this effort by sending their child to school every day on time, encouraging him/her to always do their best, monitoring weekly homework and progress through SIS and Canvas, and asking their child to share what they learned at school each day.”
