We're beyond the halfway point in the school year and as we get closer to wrapping it up, with our constantly shifting population, fast-paced working life, it's always a good thing to check on how your kid's school is doing.

I checked out the Great Schools website to see where some of Killeen's Top Rated Elementary schools were ranked. Great Schools profiles more than 200,000 pre-K-12 schools and over one million reviews from parents, teachers and students sharing information about the schools they know best. There are a LOT of great schools in our area and even GREATER teachers all over KISD so remember that this list is based on what parents, teachers and students have to say themselves.
