My experience was alright. Facilities were dated, cafeteria food wasn't the best (but it was edible). The teachers there didn't really care, except for a small number. The ones who did care, however, were great friends and mentors that I will keep in touch with in the future. I did meet my boyfriend here!

I started attending James Kenan as a freshman in 2014 and I am soon to be graduating this year in 2018. James Kenan's teacher are some of the best in regards of teaching you the material you need to know and helping with college readiness. Some teachers at James Kenan offer no hesitation when you go to them for help with personal issues. Sports at James Kenan is amazing! We have won a handful of state 1A and 1AA titles in football and look forward to winning even more in the near future.
The school's a museum compared to other schools. So many histories, including their rivalry with Wallace-Rose Hill. It's not perfect or the worst school. Yeah there can be problems in this school but it'll be like that. Like we're used to it whenever you get older in the school. It can be a bad thing to get used to something you don't like but it's not like you have a choice. Either you get through the obstacles and ignore the conflicts around you or move to another school. That's how I got through my four years. But overall, the school is just a normal school with many potentials.
