Kenmore-Tonawanda Union Free School District Reviews
Having moved from Haiti at age 8, I attended Benfranklin elementary school, the teachers have impacted me significantly throughout elementary school. I was provided with ESL and I quickly made friends. I will never forget my teachers. It took me until fifth grade to learn English well enough to speak confidently. I learned to play soccer because of that school and the modified coaches. Now I am an all western New York player and a top goal score for soccer. the district has been shaping who I am. In high school my soccer coach has been like a father figure for me, he has always been there, from emotional needs, to motivation on the field. I’ve been athletically gifted, and many people have been helping me to fine tune my craft.
There are very few things I would change about the district. Ken-Ton has been nothing but supportive in terms of following my dreams, utilizing my creativity, and allowing me to be who I wanted to be in a successful way. The students are held very highly and rarely are decisions made without getting a general feel from students and faculty rather than just administrators. Not to mention the dedication of both faculty and administration in making sure we feel safe, successful, and important. This district doesn’t ever make you feel like you’re just a number. People take the time to know your name and the story that goes along with it.
I have enjoyed my time within this district since they give you so many opportunities compared to others, including off campus experience and many different courses to help you prepare for college. The only disadvantage was that the students feel very separated from eachother because of our different programs so how they handle the placement of classes should be more similar throughout these programs instead, but still keep the differences since each program is special and meant to help each student in a very different way for their future to the others.
