Kit Carson School District No. R-1 Reviews

3 reviews
Kit Carson is a very Rural school, in fact, we only have an average of 120 students Pre-K - 12 in any given year. None the less, I would have to say that I could not imagine receiving a better educational experience anywhere else. Being at a school like this gives each student a wide range of involvement. I have had the benefit of being a three sport athlete, and have been involved in numerous clubs including FFA, knowledge bowl, and many others! Yes, this does create a busy schedule, however, it teaches responsibility and time management. Not only this, but at Kit Carson they do not try to just make good students, at my school the faculty creates great people, leaders, and model citizens that others can look up to! The community also shows an unmatchable level of pride and support that I share as well!

I went to Kit Carson since the 3rd grade and it was probably the best place that i could have ended up. Classes are small so everyone knows everyone's name and teachers actually care about their students. They will take steps to help you however they can. It was a good environment and I wouldn't have wanted to go anywhere else.
Kit Carson is a good learning environment with teachers and students helping each other. I would like to see Kit Carson get more into college level classes at earlier stages for High Schoolers.
