East Kentwood High School Reviews
The people are very well diverse, teachers are good at what they do if your in an advance class. Everything is fine and dandy and there is a lot of exchange students. Most people and students are very helpful when asked. There is a lot of sports to try out and AP courses! It’s honestly a really great school but, a lot of students dislike the food provided...
I believe that East Kentwood High School is the greatest high school to attend. This school does NOT receive as much attention and credit as it should, for all of the great accomplishments it has achieved. East Kentwood has almost any opportunity you can think of. It ranges from good opportunities with academics, to sports and even building relationships. This school is extremely diverse and a great/safe atmosphere. It isn't a place where others judge you or attempt to put you down (this includes staff and students). However instead, everyone works together to better one another and help each other strive and be the best that they can be!
The first aspect that comes to mind is diversity expressing my gratitude for growing up in such a diversified community. However the main point I want to get across is that without that exposure to different cultures, religions, languages, customs and beliefs I would not have the mindset and knowledge that I do today. I understand that not every high school contains hallways where multiple different languages are spoken, or where some kids could pay their way through college swiftly where as others can barely afford their dinner. These things helped me become more accustomed to the harsh realities of real life and be more accepting of people who are complete opposites of me. It gave me empathy and life skills and knowledge that I will forever hold close to my heart. I grew up learning that as different as everyone is-whether it be race, religion, class, ethnicity we all still have one thing in common-we are human and that is a lesson that you don't get from any ordinary High school.
