Kennett School District Reviews

Kennett High School is built on one principle, success. While the school itself offers high academics and resources to achieve so no student is above one another, it suffers from the problem of a lack of general safety protocol and faces the problem of stigma. There is nothing preventing any adult from walking into several of the main buildings from various entrances that are unlocked and unguarded. The problem of stigma is represented when one child acts out, if they are of a certain background, they are generally marked as troublemakers and no further reaching out or connection seems to be attempted and the student seems to disappear from class. A students unwillingness to corporate with becoming a model student doesn't equate to letting them slip through the cracks. Personal interest needs to be taken in those who struggle if the motto of the school is that Kennett Kids Succeed.

At Kennett High School, I was able to express myself through the arts but also enhance my knowledge with the many different courses that is offered at the school. Each and every teacher was always so helpful and they encouraged everyone to be the best of their ability. The teachers cared for their students as if the students were their own. I was extremely lucky to be able to attend a school that cared for my education and my well- being.
Kennett School District. This is where I found myself. People here succeed is our moto and it is very true indeed. I was a shy person before I became involved in many amazing clubs. I met so many inspiring people who helped shape the person I am today. I had some of the best teachers who didnt just care about the "requirements", but each and every one of his or her students. We are what you would call a family. The love and support this school provides is beyond describable. I could not imagine learning and developing anywhere else. This is my school and this is where I belong. I am involved in choir, Spanish club, FCCLA, Art Club, and more. These groups have taught me to associate with others and to understand the definition of team work. I have learned and achieved so much during the years ive spent here and I hope to make this District proud in my future.
