Kemper County School District Reviews

As I went through my high school years at Kemper County High, I experienced an entire new world from what I had in elementary. I was a part of a number people who were predicted to be nothing, but the class 2015 proved them wrong an death and every year we're progressively coming along as a school. Kemper County is such a small yet degraded place, and we as students have and are still making a difference. Kemper has great teachers and students. The school district is just in need of a new leader to actively progress our school system as a whole. In high school, our teachers strived to help us and push us towards success as I'm sure they are still doing. I know I come from a small unknown place where everything around us is negativity, but we are being that change. The only thing that should change in our schools is leadership.

My experience at Kemper County High School was very special, and some of the memories that were made were priceless. I must say that we have a strong athletic program and some very respectable teachers.
I love y principal and how hard she works for us. I do not like unprepared some things are handled at times. The food is terrible, also. Other than that, KCSD is fine.
