Kings Park Central School District Reviews
Kings Park High School is overall an average public high school. There is a decent variety of courses offered at the school. For most subjects there are teachers that excel at their respective courses, however I would enjoy seeing more teachers that care about what they teach. I had a pretty negative experience the beginning of my freshman year, the incident involved a large amount of students and the administration acted rashly without thinking leading to some unwanted and unnecessary consequences. However, looking back now as a senior at Kings Park High School, my experience was okay. It wasn't outstanding but it wasn't terrible.
All in all, KPCSD is a pretty well-rounded school. The teachers are well informed in their fields and are generally happy with their jobs.But because of a fairly low budget, the roof in the high school has a constant leaking problem, the art department works with 10-year-old supplies that constantly get stolen, and the music department is always up in arms with the heads of the schools. During the summer before the 2017-2018 school year, the school started some renovations they said would be done before the school started. It is now January of 2018 and we do not have a library, have the computer rooms are gone, the auditorium has no soundproofing and the chairs that were finally put in place are positioned wrong. Despite all this, the high school has pretty good coursework with a surprising amount of AP classes that most students come out of with a 3-5 on the AP exams.
There are great teachers there, but there needs to be an upgrade on technology and the general up keeping of the school (leaky ceilings/ruined ceilings). Air conditioning and an updated heating system would be great upgrades as well as investing money in other parts of the school such as winning sports teams and better academic resources. However, superficial matters aside, many teachers are well qualified and many go above necessary to aid students.
