Kemp Independent School District Reviews

This is a small-town school with a tight-knit community that cares about its kids. It is small enough that you see many familiar faces but not so small that everyone knows everyone. The school board is responsive to the community, and with the exception of one principal, the administration is top-notch. Drugs are at a minimum, and the kids are generally well-behaved.

I have been in this district since Kindergarten and I have enjoyed it so much. As I went through each school, I found that each teacher is passionate about what they do and they work hard to give each child the education they need. There is an increasing number of students moving to our district which is so great because Kemp has a lot to offer. Each student is passionate about their education, sports, clubs and organization. Our standardized test scores have gone up because of my senior class. Our class has brought a lot to the table and has put Kemp back on the map. Our football team has also been improving and so have our Fine Arts programs. The community is truly the best you can be in. We have a fairly small town and everyone knows each other which is so comforting and safe. Kemp schools are continuing to improve each year and that's because of our teachers and staff.
I just graduated from Kemp, and I have been enrolled there my entire school career so there isn't another district I can compare them to experience wise. But from my experience there I do have to say was memorable. I was an exceptionally good student, and never got in trouble so I don't necessarily have any bad experiences. But one thing I wish would change is the amount of freedom we have, yes, we don't have uniforms or security like some schools out there, but Kemp can be very strict. For example hair color, or facial hair, that is apparently distracting. But I honestly don't think it keeps students from learning. It was a high school though, so they did the best they could in my opinion.
