Kearney R-I School District Reviews

My kids have had some amazing opportunities through the Kearney school district. There are dual enrollment courses offered at the high school level, AP courses, an amazing new science center and teachers that are phenomenal. I have not met one single teacher in this district that doesn't truly want the very best for every kid they teach. They go out of their way to offer help when needed. Sports, especially football, are staples in not only the school, but the community as well. They recently renovated the football stadium and built a brand new gym onto the high school. The diversity is somewhat lacking, as it is in a small predominantly white community.

I believe that in order for a school to actually teach and treat all of its students well that the school needs to have an excellent support system. Kearney high school is a very expansive an lively place, but that is only because our amazing administrators and counselors. I have had first hand experience both speaking with and workin with both of them. All of my experiences here have been wonderful. I have had many issues of my on, but this school has always been a very safe and fun environment for me and my friends I believe all who study here will do great things in the future. Once you find your purpose you can chase it with all you have, thanks to Kearney high school and all of its wonderful staff and students, I can add both a healthy disposition and good education to the things I have in my arsenal. I can’t wait to make my dreams come true.
Kearney has always tried to improve their experience for students. But the school district includes many restrictions on activities that are suppose to be fun for their students. While other schools may be allowed to have an outstanding amount of spirit, through student council I have realized just how many restrictions we have on our yearly events. I believe this stunts student participation in school spirit. Due to this, I rated my school district a 3/5.
