Having taken part in several leadership roles at Kenowa Hills High School, I believe that the district excels with student voice. The board, the principal, and the teachers genuinely care about the student's concerns. This creates a very open and comfortable environment. Go, knights!

I was enrolled in Kenowa Hills for all of my educational years, from preschool until senior year. I was in the Middle College Program, which is when you take college classes your junior and senior year and end up obtaining an associates degree by your "13th year" and all of the college credits are paid for by Kenowa. Although this program has so far been a great advancement, there were many times where the Kenowa Hills side of the program was unsure of what exactly was happening. Although, the program was still relatively new when I joined it, I felt as though Kenowa could have communicated better not only with the college, but also with the students in the program. Besides the miscommunication, I am very grateful for all that Kenowa has blessed me with; the opportunities, the friendships and the memories will be with me for a life time.
I love the teachers of Kenowa Hills High School, and their commitment to helping every single student grow. I also love the theater program, which I have been a part of for four years. It would be nice if the school could be more diverse, and if the lunch could have more options for vegetarians/vegans. The counselors are also sometimes lacking, in that they take a long time to communicate and don't always give you all the options. But the teachers really make it all worth it.
