Kettle Moraine School District Reviews

I currently attend the Kettle Moraine School for Arts and Performance (one of three charter schools on the Kettle Moraine Campus). I love all the opportunities and leadership experiences I’m exposed to at my school. Not only am I surrounded by passionate artists at all times, but I’m being taught how to apply my own passions to the real world. I truly believe that everything I’m being taught is pivotal to my future success, and will help me achieve great things as an artist.
The only thing I wish were different would be our math program. I feel it could do a lot more to encompass different learning styles. Currently our only options are online courses. As someone who learns better when being taught face to face, it can be frustrating at times.
That being said, overall I love my school and I greatly prefer it to the more traditional high schools.

Kettle moraine school district is undeniably amazing in the variety of classes made available to students. Personally, I appreciated the extensive amount of AP classes offered, because of the opportunity to challenge myself and get college credit early on. However, because of the area that Kettle Moraime is found in, there is such minimal diversity that it cannot be considered the ideal school district. There have been students of color who have actually transferred schools because the racism that they experienced at KM, something that is absolutely unacceptable.
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.
