Kingsport City Schools Reviews

The Kingsport City School system, overall, is a great school system. They do care about their students education, and take it very serious. They help their students succeed in anyway they possibly can by tutoring, or even helping after school. One change that should be made, is that they should be more flexible when it comes to letting students out. For example, if Sullivan County schools are out because of severe weather, so should Kingsport City. The reason is that they are in the same exact region, and most of the students travel on the same roads. Overall, the Kingsport City School system is great.

Great learning environment. Adaqate facilities, but a bit dated. Overall, great school district that prepares you for the real world.
The teachers at KCS schools are very helpful and form strong bonds with their students. Almost every student is involved in a club or activity, such as sports, band, or even a social club. The administration, however seemingly, is not very involved with their students and needs to improve.
