I like how the school has given us chromebooks for school. They are well organized when hosting events and school plays. They have given me many opportunities to further my education. The teachers are very kind and will always help you with whatever you need help with. Kearny schools have many school fairs that can help you with your education . Your conselours help you with your senior year. I believe they doa better job then half the consoluors in Hudson County. Kearny has an abundance of opportunities in school and out of school. For example, My teacher will help me with the material i didnt undrstand in class. He would stay with me until 4:30 until i understood it. Kearny School district partners with YSBSSP. THey help you find places to volunteer at and they have many trips to schools. It is also a way for you to spend time after school. They host gmes days during the week and they hep you strengthen your resume for colleges.

The teachers and staff are phenomenal; however, the schools themselves could be more equipped. I have had quite a few problems throughout my years in the Kearny School District, yet, these encounters have not discouraged me or diminished my faith in the ability of the schools. The faculty go above and beyond for their students' and their education. These people care so much for each individual student as well as only wish the best for them. These teachers really change their students' lives and perspectives on things while maturing them through the years.
Kearny High School is experiencing a lot of changes. Construction that has been active for almost a decade is finally making some progress and the curriculum is also getting an upgrade too. KHS has successfully added a handful of more Advanced Placement classes into the curriculum and wants to add more diverse classes as well. There are only a few clubs due to lack of advising volunteers, but sports are booming. We are known as a very athletic school and we continue to perform. Our school is very diverse and that is something that is very apparent as you walk through the main doors.
