Kenmore-Tonawanda Union Free School District Reviews

All Categories
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.

I have attended schools in the Kenmore-Tonawanda Union Free School District, and I have never come across a single problem with the district. The District had always made sure that education is one of the most important things in a child's life. I have attended Catholic Schools my whole life, and the atmosphere in each of my schools were diverse, safe, and kept clean. I've always felt extremely prepared for the next step of my education, whether it be high school or college. All my teachers, past or present, have made the learning experience more fun than it probably even should be. I would hope to see a bit more spirit when it comes to sporting events at the schools. I'm extremely lucky to have been educated in the Ken-Ton School District.
Ken-Ton overall is a great school district however as the years have been passing it seems there are more and more problems beginning to arise. I am in IB and a lot of my teachers seem to be used to honors and AP classes where they don't have to do much however with IB you need just as much effort from the teachers as the students so this makes things frustrating sometimes. Also some of the teachers are just not qualified to be teaching those classes, simple as that. Also there are some schools that prioritize sports over music and it's quite evident. Besides this I feel like Kenton is a great place to be
