A solid school district with solid schools, teachers, and student body. I thoroughly enjoyed my time going through these schools, especially considering that many of the facilities are brand new and very well-kept. I'm sure my peers and classmates would agree!

I was enrolled in KUSD from eighth grade through twelfth. Before I attended KUSD schools I was enrolled in a catholic school, which was terrible, in seven years at a private school I never had a single science lesson. When I made the switch to KUSD I fell in love with the sciences I would read past the assignment in my textbook, soaking up all the knowledge I could! I read and learned so much from my fantastic teachers that when it came time to take state mandated tests I was one of the top science students in the district and one of the top two in my school. Without KUSD I never would have become so passionate about preserving our environment and increasing scientific literacy in America, it truly changed how I look at the world.
My experience with Kenosha Unified School District was good. The rules were reasonable, lots of safety training, events for students to partake in (donations, job fairs, college campus tours), and I loved my school. The only issue I had was that complaints weren’t taken seriously. My school didn't have proper heating/A.C. and even though students/staff made that problem apparent for years, nothing was ever done. Similarly, students/staff had to use outdated, inoperable laptops that everyone complained about (again, for years), yet it took the district ‘til my Junior year to replace them.

I’m no stranger to the harsh realities of funding, but it came off as unfair to the students/staff attending/working at my school because other schools already had/were given those “luxuries”. In the future, I hope that the remaining problems (and any new ones that may arise) get taken more seriously and solved sooner so students/staff don't have to waste their time fighting about it.
