Kalama School District Reviews

What I liked about Kalama School District was the friendliness of the environment. Something that would improve my experience at Kalama High School would include offering more programs to study.
The safe is great, and they are always looking out for you. My only criticism is that the school is so small sometimes there is little opportunities for advancement beyond the standard curriculum.
I have been very pleased with my overall experience at Kalama School. The teachers have been wonderful. When it comes to certain sports, they do need to focus on getting experienced coaches which in turn will help the athletes improve.
I honestly can’t wait to get out of Kalama. It is such a small town that literally everybody knows everybody so the littlest thing is turned into an even greater thing. I am Filipino and I get racist comments said to me on the daily. The parents of the kids who do this don’t care, they condone it. This is honestly a terrible school but we are trying to do what we can to change that. I am responsible for the founding of the diversity board and am a part of the Student advisory council. One thing that I’ve heard many parents say is “You’ll love Kalama, but not if your kids go to Kalama.” But the thing is, we are actually a lot more decent than other schools in our area. So I would just think about the inclusion and the complete and total minority and race comments, said on the daily that are having nothing done. The teachers literally expect you to know everything and do not teach a single thing. It’s gotten so bad that I have an anxiety attack every morning.
Everything about the Kalama school district is amazing! Everyone is very friendly and encouraging and the teachers are always doing their best to help you pass your classes and good grades. The athletics are good too. They are 2x state champs hopefully goin on a third. The coaching staff is amazing and they aren’t just your coach but your friend. Overall it’s the best high school I’ve ever been to!
I liked how tightly knit it was, where everybody knew everybody, that's why I chose a smaller college to go to, so it felt comfortable, and at home, which was important to my success
Kalama is a all around a good school, the staff and students are kind and welcoming to all who enter. The learning environment in kalama is outstanding I would recommend kalama to anyone I meet.
I loved the classroom size and the personal engagement between students and teachers. I would love to see the school grow and gain more students and staff.
The teachers at Kalama High School are amazing. They each want nothing more than for you to learn the materials, and succeed to graduate. They are all devoted to their jobs and even participate in school events. I moved from Kelso to Kalama and I was the new kid at Kalama High, and the students and staff filled me right in and welcomed me into their school and lives. It is a great environment for anyone in debate on where to send their child for school.
Kalama High School can be a good experience if you take the right classes. Most of the teachers care and are helpful/good people, but there are almost no clubs/activities to participate in because it's such a small school.
