I have has a wonderful experience in my 12 years of Kingsport City schools. All the way from elementary to high school, I have enjoyed my teachers and surrounding help. Kingsport puts a lot of effort into academics as well as outside clubs. Overall, I think Kingsport would rate high nationally, because of their dedication to their students.

Kingsport has a Very nice learning environment with many opportunities to become a more involved, humble student. The teachers strive to be the best they can for each and every student and make goals for success.
This was absolutely a wonderful experience. I recommend this school. I'm a senior student, about to graduate, and loved my time here.
