Karns high school is my second home. It is a place where I laid the foundation for my future. It is where I built relationships with both peers and teachers. Teachers are very friendly and are willing to help you to become a successful student. The clubs here are excellent. It even has AFJROTC, which many people from other schools come to karns just to take AFJROTC. Also, which is convenient, karns high school is right next to a vocational school called Byington CTEC. Our school works with that school to provide students with apprenticeships for skilled labor jobs. Academics has classes from regular to college classes within the campus. Our school, as a matter of fact, just got new chrome books for use, so the resources has expanded and became more modernized. Karns high school is actually one of the top three schools within the Knox county district.

Karns High School is a small school run by phenomenal people. The teachers are amazing and care about their students. The support that the administration gives to the students is so comforting!
I liked seeing the strives the school administration was making to improve ACT scores. The second free ACT the school offered was a huge opportunity for many seniors. However, the engagement level in the classrooms could improve.
