Kutztown Area School District Reviews

Although Kutztown is very welcoming and safe, there is little diversity and most of the teachers do not prepare students in any way and do not proficiently teach what they are supposed to. This has impeded the ability to learn certain subjects due to there being a lack of teaching. Everyone in a class could fail a test and the "teacher" will not do anything to fix it.

Throughout my experience in this school district, I have witnessed the shifting of teachers and principles frequently (mainly in high school). Despite this, I feel as though I have grown as a person through my education and my interactions with others. There were many course options available for me to enjoy my day, and further my education. The only reason why I cannot give this district 5 stars is simply because I feel as though there is a lack of motivation for some of the teachers that I had to teach. This lack of motivation occasionally affected me, making me question why I had to care about the busywork I was completing when the teacher would simply glance at it to see if it was completed.
Most of the teachers really care about their students-- which is sometimes hard to find with such a small school. Nice atmosphere. Sometimes lacking some of the bigger school benefits such as lots of unique clubs to chose from, more classes, and even better teachers. All around, nice place to grow up and go to school.
