Kingston City School District Reviews

Kingston high school (KHS) is one of the more ordinary and plain schools I've ever gone to despite the level of ethnic diversity it has.
Everything from the staff, administrators, academics, and school resources are all relatively standard enough to suffice a student's educational needs.

The teacher diversity I felt was not all that great. The KHS staff is extremely volatile in terms of the level of education they provide.

The administrators are always making an effort to keep the school safe. They are quick at making decisions during bad weather or in the case of a school bombing or attack.

As far as school resources go, I think KHS has everything required for a student to learn at an efficient rate. They provide little things such as notebooks, pens, headphones, musical instruments such as piano, and so on.

The district lacks proper funding, it has an inability to get updated technology and puts its objectives before the care of its students. Many teachers do try but there is an abundance of teachers that do not care and will teach in one style and do not care if all their students comprehend what they are teaching. Kingston had construction going on during Regents Exams (Regents determine whether a student passes the class or not). Kingston High School at a multitude of months in which students and teachers couldn't hear their own thoughts do to the noise of construction. Kingston exploded one of their buildings at the high school with children in the adjoining buildings. I would not recommend Kingston as a school district.
The Kingston city school district is up and coming since I became a freshman. Throughout my four years of high school, Kingston high school underwent major construction and many new facilities were put into place. However, the teachers should be more closely monitored in my opinion because many of them are far from capable of teaching a classroom. I find it to be terrible how some of the faculty are given the responsibility to teach students but instead would rather neglect their duties and sit on their phones all class period.
