Keystone Central School District Reviews
The majority of the people in this school district are very judgmental and rude. They are racist and are often not quiet about being such. They call people of color in our school awful names and are never reprimanded for it. We have kids walking around in full Confederate flag merchandise, yet the kids wearing their "pajamas" are asked to change. The school is in millions of dollars of debt, yet they want to continue to buy the football team (that absolutely sucks), two new uniforms a season. At the same time, they are threatening to cut the music and art programs, which are actually succeeding. We've had many children make it to region band and choir. Our color guard team literally won the Atlantic Coast Championships, taking first out of 52 other teams, and scoring a 96 out of 100, and didn't even get as much as a pat on the back. But no worries, the football team was praised for winning one game the whole season. Don't even get me started on the teachers.
The school experience is not overall that great or helpful for life outside of the classroom. There are often fights and disagreements among the student body, creating a lot of tension that interferes with learning. The skills we learn are lacking, we are far behind many other school districts with where each grade is in their curriculum. It is also difficult to have one on one time with teachers if you are a student that falls behind easily. We do not have mandatory geography classes, making the overall knowledge of the country we live in, and other places we need to be aware of around the world, not present. Most students can not locate or name all 50 states. It is too easy to be accepted into the Honor and High honor roll, as it's not even a requirement to be taking honors, dual enrollment, or AP courses to qualify. Overall, there are many things about the district, particularly the high schools, that should be changed.
I have had to endure racial discrimination throughout all 12 years of attending Keystone Central, the school district is not inclusive of all and does not recognize a need for diversity. The school district doesn't care about forming the students for the world, they are in debt and make cuts to programs like electronics and languages which students would be able to use in their lives. They allow people to retake tests to improve their grades and that hurts everybody because it allows students to improve their GPA and class rank and that hurts the others. The school district will not invest in curriculum that will benefit the students. There isn't any enforcement on their bully free zone and they brush situations to the side as long as they are kept hidden and when they are brought to the attention of all, you are treated like you did something wrong, it's like you are punished for being a victim and trying to do something about it.
