I like the staff for the most part but they don't seem to see what's going on with their students. I never felt accepted. They were teaching that if you are an introvert you won't go anywhere and you need to be involved with everything to be noticed by anyone. They were also a little bias with the "tyee tickets", only the popular kids seemed to get them.
I do find that the honor and PAGE program was helpful and a lot of people benefitted from it, the teachers were helpful and a lot offered to help with projects and homework... but the counselors told be their main priority was to get kids to class, not to make sure they were okay, they never let me relaxe and do what I needed to be calm.
About the food, I got the chicken from the snack bar area, many times it had the bottom black like the breading was molding, I counted 4 times in a row.

The staff is amazing. They really care for the students and try their best for their students to succeed in school and at home. At Kalles you will find happy and very positive people.
The admin, students, teachers and parents try to create a family type atmosphere as much as possible. Our Principal id involved at ALL EVENTS and makes his presence known.
