I went to high school here and even though it was not the prettiest or richest high school, it was still a wonderful experience; many great friends and memories. Being in college I really miss being a high schooler in this school sometimes. I began here my sophomore year and I highly recommend going into an AVID class, it was really helpful to me. I especially loved their fast track program which allowed students to take courses in Mesa College and earn credits for a college. It really prepared you for what to expect one you start college and made the transition much easier. Also, across from the school there is many places to eat it so that was very convenient.

I liked how it is connected to a college and the kids could get college credit while in high school. they let people with free periods off campus which is great! school lunch isn't the best but I mean it is school. There are many different ethnicities there. teachers are good. The only thing bad about this school is how stricted the dress code is, almost none of the other high schools are this stricted on the dress code.
Better school than what most people think. I am graduating with about a year and a half of college classes thanks to their free mesa programs. The small school system at Kearny also makes student-teacher interactions pretty fantastic. Plus, I am able to graduate a semester early. School makes sure all students get as many math classes as possible. Everyone will graduate with 5 years of math at this school. This school works hard for students and thier careers.
