Kaukauna Area School District Reviews

I really like my school and all the staff that work there. The schedules are organized in a logical order and there are lots of classes you can pick to enroll in. The people in my school are awesome, and the staff is all understanding and friendly. The only things I would change about my school are the temperature and advanced class rules. It is always really cold during the school day, so it is distracting when learning. I also think that for people who are in advanced classes, that their grade should be curved so their GPA is now lowered. People in non-advanced classes at our school are sometimes getting 4.0s and people in advanced classes are getting lower GPAs just because heir classes are harder. Overall, my experience at Kaukauna High School is very good.

As a graduating senior, I would have to say that my experiences at Kaukauna Area School District have been relatively positive. As a small Wisconsin town, it would seem like we would blend into the background as just another small town school district full of close-minded students and teachers. However, Kaukauna has proven to be so much more than that. The students in all six Kaukauna schools have formed a large family, branded by our former principal as “Kaukauna Strong”. In light of our previous history surrounding drug abuse and suicides within our schools, we have been able to bounce back as positive and optimistic as ever. However, this sudden drive for success brings forth a new set of issues. While the profit-making programs, such as high school sports, continue to get endless funding; less popular activities are left behind. If I could change one thing about my school district, I would place a larger emphasis on the importance of not only sports but also drama and music.
My time at Kaukauna High School has been one filled with involvement and pleasant grades, but also of stress and difficulty. The plethora of clubs and sports throughout the student body allows for more friendships and connections with the students. The classes have always included partnerships and the teachers picking the pairs, so students are then forced to get to know new people and work collaboratively with them. While Kaukauna High School permeates the notion of a successful and cooperative school, there is a specific part of the school that I would enjoy seeing a change in. My concern is the idea of a weighted GPA system due to the ability for students to take easy classes and receive a 4.0 while other students challenge themselves in rigorous coursework but still achieve only a 4.0. A weighted GPA system would allow the ambitious and hardworking students to stand out from those who choose the easy work throughout high school.
