Kearney R-I School District Reviews

I was very active in HS and excelled in my classes. I was not overly challenged by the teachers. There was virtually no diversity present. I feel as though I was somewhat ready for college, but they could have done a better job. I felt safe at all times while in school. The administration let the community and the parents who complain run EVERYTHING!

My experience in the Kearney School District has been pretty good. I moved to Kearney when I was in 3rd grade. I have made many friends and participated in multiple activities. I have always been a person who likes to learn new things and Kearney High School tries really hard to help their students and push them to achieve their goals. This year the district implemented a new student teaching internship program and that is helping me learn/train to become an elementary school teacher. Without this program, I wouldn't have found my path. With the help of the teachers and other faculty in the Kearney School District, they are giving opportunities to students to better themselves, not just with the teaching program, but with other programs they have implemented. As I graduate and start a new path, I will always look back at the teachers, friends, counselors and coaches who have impacted my life.
I have been with the Kearney r-1 school district for the entirety of my life and have enjoyed almost every minute of it. The teachers that I have encounter have all been encouraging and supportive of all their students with only a couple of exceptions. The administrative branch of the Kearney school district has also been historically fair, but not without their flaws. The programs at the school district is also good in general. The weakest link would have to be the English sector who did not prepare me for the English section of the ACT in a proper way. Also some programs such as computer sciences are nearly nonexistent. There are many additions being made to the high school at the time of this review and these changes appear to be nothing but encouraging for the future of the district as well. All in all The Kearney school district is a wonderful place to have your kid go if you're looking for a good all encompassing education.
