Kaneland Senior High School Reviews

I feel that the school’s end of “school” is great. The staff, the teachers, the programs, it’s all great! The students themselves are issues, but I’m sure that’s widespread. Certain teachers, two of which I’ll name, a Mr. Ponz and Mr. Conroy, are some of the best teachers I’ve ever had the privilege to learn from. Kaneland even having these two teachers puts them above the rest, however the majority of the teachers do truly care about their students. That matters, and that sets Kaneland apart from the rest.

Most of the teachers at Kaneland truly cared about their students’ wellbeing and learning experience. Having said that, the administration at Kaneland simply could not care less about their students. Money was never spent in an attempt to make students more comfortable or improve their learning. The COVID-19 virus was by no means Kaneland’s fault. However, their response was bafflingly uncaring. Graduating seniors were forgotten and left behind. To be frank, Kaneland Senior High School was just good enough to get my GED and move on to college. I credit them with being the platform with which I accomplished things throughout my high school career, but they were not the reason.
I have enjoyed my time at Kaneland Highschool. The school is very old and honestly falling apart. I was in band, soccer, and lacrosse, these programs were great! The food at the school is probably like most schools, not very good. Most of the teachers and staff are average and don't go above and beyond. Overall I would classify my school as average.
