Kalamazoo Public Schools Reviews
I love going to Kalamazoo Public Schools. The diversity is what makes it so special. I moved to KPS from Portage Public schools with little diversity. I moved to KPS because I wanted to learn, see, and interact in different cultures. I made so many amazing friends and teacher bonds. I learned so many things that I would have never learned at Portage Public Schools. Most importantly I learned about other cultures through experiences and understood perspectives that other people may view of the cultures. A couple things I would like to change in the district of Kalamazoo Public Schools is the violence, and fighting that happens throughout the school year. Many teachers have actually got hit or have had a very abusive experience among teacher there. I hope that through the years the violence changes and the weapons get left at home.
What I loved about Kalamazoo Public Schools is that it is diverse and there is a wide array of people there, many races, identities, etc. You can find both the best people and the worst people there but it's worth it once you find that one good friend. Most teachers have wonderful personalities and can relate to students, they have all been in the school and understand the atmosphere well. There tends to be quite a bit of drama here though so every once and a while there are physical altercations and engagements, so I would want the rate of those to change. Maybe implementing a better response system to these would help deter them in a way.
Everyone I have met or seen within this School System, was accepting and friendly. It’s extremely diverse and receiving the Kalamazoo Promise had helped me tremendously in college!
