I am a graduate of Kalkaska High School. I have had a learning disability since I was born due to health issues. The teacher here push you to be your best in everything you do. There were times that I did not feel I could do it, they would give me the encouragement to push forward and accomplish. I had one teacher that would help me with reading every night after school. She was not required to do it, but did it out of the goodness of her heart.

As with most schools nowadays, the lunches are far from spectacular, but, in my opinion, that is the worst of the problems I've experienced. Other than that, the biggest issues I have found are a lack of the level of funding found in many other schools in the area, and a weak math department at the high school level. The science and social studies departments are fantastic, with teachers with real world experience with what they are teaching and/or a general passion that surpasses many. In my experience, the counselors seem to have a true interest in the students' well being, as with most of the other faculty.
I love the teachers here! They were always There to help you with whatever you needed no matter what. One draw back would be our school doesn’t offer a wide range of classes.
