Kearney Public Schools Reviews
The staff at KPS is fantastic! They are supportive, caring, and passionate. The teachers challenge their students to do the best that they can every single day.
Kearney High School offers a unique experience in its academic and extracurricular activities. Regarding academics, KHS offers a program of Small Learning Communities (SLC). This is a system of branches in the job market, for example: health care sciences & education, business, fine & performing arts, agriculture, food, & natural resources, and skilled & technical sciences. Classes in the school are grouped into these SLCs based on their relevance to the field of study. A good and a bad quality about these are that while some students thrive with this opportunity to pursue fields of interest, those who don't have a sense of career direction feel pressured. So many positive things can be said about the extracurriculars at KHS. In the arts, students thrive and receive many awards for performance. In the athletics, every team competes at the top level in Class A. This helps to make KHS a more enjoyable place to attend and receive an education.
I liked the amount of opportunity offered at Kearney Public Schools. I changed schools in 7th grade because Kearney offered so much more than my small town. In Kearney I was able to take college level courses, participates in all kinds of extra curricular activities, be apart of sports teams, and be put in leadership roles. It has let me explore the area I wish to pursue as a career and has taught me life skills that will push me forward in the world.
