Starting out Kearns high already has a bed reputation, however what is worse is that it has accepted the bad reputation. Both the students and the teachers fell into this thought process of how the majored of the student body wouldn't amount to everything. They whole time I was there it felt I was fighting a battle of reputation. The teachers themselves were nice but the majority of them gave more busy work than actually teaching. The students were all smoking before class and there was little action fro the administration from stopping it. It felt more like they were trying to raise graduation numbers than help those who actually cared about their education.
I went to KHS for 4 years, and I can say this school actually offers an abundance of opportunities to get ahead including so many AP classes that I haven’t seen other high schools offer. You can go far in your academics in this school if you choose to push yourself. The select group of kids with me who chose to go beyond the standard curriculum have been accepted into schools such as Penn State, Princeton, Villanova, and Harvard to name some. This school does lack in clubs but there are anual things such as Talent shows, Musicals, senior play, Junior AND Senior prom, etc. Theres always something to be involved in. KHS also offers over 10 sports to choose from. If there would be a big downside to this school it would be the counceling. They do a poor job of helping you with stuff like college applications, volunteering and scholarships. For that, your pretty much on your own, but there are teachers who are always willing to help out with things like college and scholarship essays.
