Some of teachers are great and really enjoy their career as a teacher! Although, you have a lot there just to get a paycheck and the administrators are crap! They are manipulative and do not know how to handle situations in a professional manner. My mother had three kids go through Kannapolis City Schools that graduated but now that the school system has turned to complete crap, she now has her kids in Cabarrus County School, and the teachers are just great.

I loved participating in sports and making friends. Courses were hard but prepared me for college. With my teacher's help, I was accepted to all the colleges I applied for. Our ARTs program is 2nd to none!
I’m an Alumni through the Kannapolis School System my experience there were good. The Teachers and the Administration work together to make sure no one is left behind with education and everyone is given the same opportunities to learn. The only thing I would change is Dress Code for the High School Students.
