Kalama Junior/Senior High School Reviews
I have to say the major highlight to my time in Kalama High school was the kind of relationship the school has with the community due to Kalama being such a small community as it is this helps build a relationship through an assortment of volunteering work for citizens and students. Not only that but there is deep history for this town and everyone in it where teachers and their grandparents were students at this school and this school is just a historical monument to many generations. But this school has plenty of room to improve though cause our school lacks a lot of opportunities that other high schools have and what needs to change is the courses available because us students lack the knowledge on how to handle the business world when it comes to life skills, balancing budgets, or paying for taxes our generation is becoming less knowledgeable and that needs to change.
The teachers at my HIgh School are outgoing and trustworthy, they take the extra time to get students of all different skill levels the help that they may need. Teachers at my school are positive and clear while teaching. They take the time to allow students to ask questions about anything that they don't fully understand.
The principal and vice principal try approach students that have questions when possible which is usually right away. They will deal with punishment appropriately and will address any issues that the school has to have the ultimate safety for the whole school. All of the administration is very friendly and will help you if you ask and when they have time. The teachers all follow the dress code and people can't have skinny tank top straps or shorts that are shorter than finger tip length. All teachers take attendance every class period to make sure that students are attending class and they will mark students tardy if they are tardy. After a certain amount of tardys and unexcused absences a students will receive detention for missing school as they need to be there unless it is an excused absence. The school follows all of the rules that it is supposed to, gives out the appropriate punishments for certain actions, the administration is very friendly and helpful to all of the students, and the policies are fair and just.
