Karns City Area School District Reviews

I enjoyed my six years at Karns City High School. What I enjoyed most was playing sports, lifting, and hanging out with my friends. The academics was pretty good, but I wish they had some more to offer and helped prepare me a little more for College. I feel they could have added more classes and they didn't really have any honors classes or classes with the ability to carry over into college so you didn't have to waste your time retaking classes in college.

I enjoyed the atmosphere. I made many friends throughout my high school career. Classes are more than often enjoyable and teachers engage the students. Often though, there is drama and some situations that teachers and staff can not control.
Karns city is s small school so your teachers know you, it's a community that supports you and encourages you. I received a well rounded education at KC. And I made friendships that will last a lifetime and I had fun!
