The Catholic high school in Uniondale had gone through two name changes in three years and was on the verge of closing when the Diocese of Rockville Centre asked the Marianist Brothers to come in and save it.
A quarter-century later, Kellenberg Memorial High School is not only surviving but thriving. Enrollment has grown from 1,400 to 2,550, with more students applying to get in than seats available. New athletic fields are covered with artificial turf, a student TV station operates in the school and the campus is a beehive of daily activities that last from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and beyond.
