Kettle Moraine High School provides a high level education and prepares its' students for the future. The students can wake up every morning knowing that they are going to an environment that is safe and has their best interest in mind. A variety of classes are available to all students at all levels. Charter schools are offered to students who desire an alternative form of education. The Kettle Moraine School District has a real feeling of community, with parent involvement. Extra curricular activities of all kinds are offered. Students are encouraged to come forward with their interests to start new clubs. Even though the school does not have a lot of diversity, teachers try their best to inform the students about different backgrounds. The food in the cafeteria is edible but students can always resort to the vending machines! Kettle Moraine students strive to be responsible, respectful and safe.

During my 7 years attending Kettle Moraine schools I have been able to get a solid picture of the district. The academics are prestigious to say the least, and a large factor of this is quality teaching. The district is attuned to students' personal interests, offering 3 charter schools: Global, a predominately online school, Perform, which focuses on the arts, music, and drama, and a High School of Health Sciences. A positive aspect of KMSD is the inclusion and strength of the adaptive programs for kids with special needs. In addition to academics, the student life is great as Kettle Moraine offers a multitude of sports, clubs, and organizations. The only negative would be the diversity within the school district. The student body has few representatives from different cultures. As the administration feels that becoming culturally proficient is important, a guest speaker from the Black Holocaust Museum in Milwaukee was brought in.
I liked my high school very much! It offered great opportunities to become involved in athletics and in clubs. The academic classes were rigorous and prepared me well for college. Some teachers lacked greatly in the skills to teach general courses as they struggled to get through the material themselves. The social scene at Kettle Moraine was good but it did not offer great diversity. Overall, Kettle Moraine High School is a good school but it lacks some very basic functions.
