Haddam-Killingworth High School Reviews
Haddam - Killingworth High School provides a unique high school experience as they truly value the students and their success above all. As a student, I feel as though my voice is not only heard, but valued as I am given innumerable opportunities to become involved and push myself. With teachers who truly care and are experienced, each student is given the tools to succeed. In addition, there are many clubs to become involved in and anyone who is willing to put in the effort can start their own club! I personally am a part of an advisory club where a group of students who apply work directly with the administration to adjust the curriculum, guidelines, and improve the school. This is one of the many unique opportunities I was given to become involved and better my community!
My personal experience at Haddam-Killingworth High School has been great, however it would not have been this way if I did not advocate for myself. I truly believe that if you have below a 3.0 at HKHS, you are not given nearly as much attention as other students. I know that I have good leadership skills and I know that my peers respect me and see me as a leader, but I also know that it is not just my grades that got me here. The administration automatically assumes that the top 10% of the class is where to look for the best leaders, but I believe that leaders are found everywhere regardless of their grade point average.
High school has been a great experience! For a smaller school, we have a wide range of courses that challenge us. The only downside to the school is that with it being on the smaller side, there isn't much diversity, but the majority of the students are very accepting of all the students. The teachers are always willing to help students out as long as the student makes the effort to reach out, and we have a club, sport or extracurricular activity for just about everyone. Some of our sports teams are at the top of their division, and the ones that aren't, the team members all have a great time. The school is pretty old so it needs some repairs, but that doesn't affect our school spirit!
