My experience these last few years in Genoa have been quite memorable. Each year has been filled with new possibilities and options. The environment around the school is a beautiful small town with big-time pride! Compared to schools around us I definitely think we have the upper hand. The diversity is pretty moderate and inclusiveness is higher when compared to other larger schools. If I could ask for one thing to change, it would be incentives to help students learn more. There are always a group of students who may not be as inclined to want to learn as others, so I feel as though they should implement some more programs in order to get them involved.

I graduated from Genoa-Kingston High School in 2018. The school is in a small town which I loved. The motto at GK is "small town school, big time pride" and that could not be more true. Everyone is always supporting one another. My favorite thing was the Friday night football games. We always had a huge fan section, even if it was cold and raining. GK is a great school with great faculty and great students.
Genoa-Kingston high school was a school which excelled in certain areas while being mundane in others. There was a lack of motivation from many students as well as certain teachers alike which caused it to be hard to become motivated as well. That being said, many teachers were enthusiastic and willing to help the students who had a strong drive.
