Keene Central School District Reviews

5 reviews
All Categories
Keene Central School's eminent advantages are its idyllic Adirondack setting, a tight-knit community, and its (extremely) small size. The student population is about 170, in one building, K-12. Awareness of ecology and Spanish language is developed early on. The cafeteria emphasizes health and sustainability, sourcing from local farms and the school garden. The product is a safe, nurturing, and uplifting environment that is perfect for young families. Keene students graduate with an appreciation for natural beauty, fellowship, and knack for balance and versatility.

Its strength of small size is also an obvious weakness. The student body is at least 99% white. Students may feel more individual social and academic pressure than is normal. The amount of attention given to each child facilitates both support and scrutiny.

Keene Central School has always been a positive, supporting, and encouraging school with teachers that are invested in the success of their students. From the first time you walk into the doors of KCS, you always feel welcome and know that people are there to help you thrive. Class sizes are small, allowing for students to become familiar with their teachers and develop a cordial teacher-student relationship.
Although the small class sizes help students become familiar with their teachers and fellow students, it also causes students to be stretched thin. For example, a single student may be involved in several clubs, orginizations, fundraisers, and after school activities that overalap and are all demanding. Fundraisers often overlap, causing the immediate community to constantly be asked for donations. I would like to see these two issues changed.
A small school in the Adirondacks has many pros but also has its cons. It is a very inclusive school and also very sheltering which is helpful at times but can be controlling. There is a lot of community involvement in the school and many of the school projects are funded by the very supportive community. Being located in the outdoors, students are often able to go outside and experience many outdoor areas that some people may never get to see.
