During my time at Kenmore East, I have always felt safe and welcomed no matter the activity. I truly always felt like the staff, whether it be the teachers, the guidance counselors, or the principal, had every students well-being in their best interest. My personal guidance counselor worked with me as an individual every time I faced any type of issue, whether it be academic, or personal. I felt like I always had someone to turn to when I had a question. With the click of a button I could email my counselor with a question about scheduling, academics, or mental health in general. Every teacher was so kind and caring, and treated all students with respect. I really appreciate all the effort that every staff member at Kenmore East put in to make every student’a highschool years memorable.

Kenmore School District has ability to be really great. Most of the staff is very encouraging and make school a place you want to be, but there is also multiple teachers who aren't the best. Although all teachers have different teaching styles I've personally ran into a problem with teachers who don't provide one that fits their students, even if ALL of them don't grasp information from the way they are teaching it. Another complaint I would have is with the guidance offices. I feel as if they do not provide enough information about things that need to be done especially relating to college. I know they have a lot to accomplish but it is very hard to submit application when you have to wait months to get transcripts sent.
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.
