What I liked about my high school was the sense of community with sporting events and the devotion of the teachers and counselors in the classroom to preparing their students for life after high school. I liked being able to talk to my counselors and have them help me in making decisions on what classes would be best and what colleges to look into that are the best fit for me. I enjoyed high school at Kearney very much. Once a bulldog, always a bulldog!

My experience at Kearney High School as overall been very good, all of the teachers are wonderful people who generally want to see you succeed. There is a no-bullying tolerance, and the school does exceedingly well in making sure this is true. The only thing I have not liked about the school is that freshmen are not in the building, being a freshmen is hard thing to do in the Kearney school district as you are not at the high school building. I would most definitely recommend Kearney High School as an amazing school to go to, both in the academic and extracurricular aspect as well as with the teachers and administration.
Kearney High School has a great sense of community! All three years of high school was spent at Kearney and it was a great place to grow up. It has a small town sense of community and everyone works together. The teachers are great and really help us test and get ready for college as a senior. They go over expectations and life goals to have in college.
