Kellam - Workshop!
Floyd e. Kellam
Floyd E. Kellam High School, opened in 1962, serves the largest geographical area of any school in the City of
Virginia Beach. The boundaries run from the highly populated General Booth corridor south to the North Carolina
line and from Landstown east to Back Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. This uniqueness is also seen in the diverse
student population of Kellam High School.
The student population includes 83 percent Caucasian students, 9 percent African-American students, 4 percent
Hispanic, and 3 percent Asian/Pacific Islander students. Our current total population is 1,809 students. A new building
for Kellam High School on West Neck Road was officially opened in January of 2014. The total cost of the school
was estimated at about $102 million dollars. It is a two-story building that occupies 336,410 square feet.
Kellam High School, ever faithful,
Noble, brave, and strong,
Glory, honor, truth, and beauty,
Echo in our song.
