Central Kitsap High School Reviews

I've had a fairly good experience with Central Kitsap High School. I've attended the high school for all four years. Most people get along with one another, and not much drama occurs. However, only half of the teachers do an adequate job at teaching, most of who teach AP courses. The other half of "bad" teachers do a poor job at teaching the material, insufficiently care about their students' performance, and are sometimes disrespectful toward their students. One suggestion I have for Central Kitsap High School is to allow their students to rate as many teachers as they desire after each semester so that the school is more aware of the teachers' level effectiveness for their students' education.

The environment is amazing. I'm excited to walk through the doors every time I get a chance. At Central Kitsap High School I feel welcomed and as if I belong. This school wants the learning environment to be welcoming and comfortable for their students, and they do an outstanding job of doing so. The teachers play a positive role in the students lives and are always trying to find ways for the students to succeed in any way possible. As a First Nations student (Mohawk) and President of the Native Council at CK, the school has been very accepting and understanding of my culture. CK has given me the opportunity to gain leadership skills through my role as president and has taught me to guide others along the path to success. I am truly grateful for all they have given me over the years.
The school is very focused on getting you to college, not so much any other type of job. They push AP classes and doing activities connected to the school. Though not all the teachers are great, they are so diverse there is bound to be one you’ll enjoy. Speaking of diversity, the school had clubs for boys/girls, LGBTQ, and many different ethnicities as a way to feel more connected. People here aren’t afraid to speak up for what they want or what they deem isn’t right, for the most part everyone is able to share there opinion without being judged.
