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.

This is my second year of Kearny High School however many things are to be liked. A lot of school spirit and involvement with students. Such activities, sports, clubs and classes. There are cooking classes, lab forensics, personal finance, child development, medical, dental and first aid classes. Where can you find classes like that in public schools now a days? You can't be bored at KHS. Even though i only did half year there it has been 2 great years. I learned a lot from meeting new people, through sports and even classes. Teachers there are also very helpful and teach us as well as they can so that when we advance to further classes we know what we are dealing with. There is much to say about KHS this little summary will never do. Not every school gives you all these opportunities to succeed in life. So we have to take advantage of it. Everything helps you just need to go after it.
The teachers were very helpful and concerned with the student’s academic preparation, however the school conditions weren’t the best. For instance, there was a lot of construction going on, trailers, etc.
