Kiski Area School District Reviews

My experience at Kiski Area School District has varied throughout the different school levels. My experience at the elementary level was fantastic. Administrators were very much focused on how they could better the lives of the students and oftentimes supported teachers who aimed to help students. The Intermediate School is a mess of sorts. Administration in the Intermediate School is constantly shifting which makes it a bit difficult for any sort of policy that pushes improvement to be set into motion. One's experience with the High School varies depending on what programs you are involved in. Those that are interested in subjects outside of Band, Football, Wrestling, Yearbook or the school musical might have a tough time having their interests supported but if you are interested in those subject you will have all the best resources available.

Kiski Area is a school district unafraid of taking chances and embracing new ideas. Each school year has evolved into a greater academic experience, transitioning from traditional scheduling to block scheduling and allowing for students to be more flexible during the mid-day study hall. Despite the small errors that may inconvenience each individual school year, especially with the technical difficulties discovered with the transition to chrome books, but the improvements in education have been worth it.
The teachers give out online assignments and sit on their phones for the period. The lunch food is getting worse by the day, my chicken patties are always either pink or burnt nowadays. The bathrooms are never clean. However, the teachers are extremely friendly. Everyone at the school is always prepared to lend a helping hand. The students gets involved in most of the school’s events, especially sporting events.
