Kearny high school is filled with programs and great help in order to achieve anyone's personal goal. It is the best small school in Kearny which allows greater opportunities for every individual student. The only thing i wish would change is the hype behind the school. If there were more outgoing programs to bring students in, the school will succeed as well as the students. Overall Kearny allowed me to follow my dream and support me the whole way through and this is an option every student should be allowed to have.

This school is actually called Kearny College Connections. SCC (small school name) is an excellent school academically and overachieving students. However, when it comes down to spirit , there is none. An good thing about this school is that it offers many college courses, that allows the students to graduate early, mid senior year. And go to the local community college, Mesa, to take classes.
When I was there, a boy always touched my stomach and I told him multiple times do not do that. He didn't stop. I cried at the restroom and my teacher found me, took me to the president's office. They reach out the guy, but nothing happy. They think my English is bad and said because I came from China. But I can understand it. I was so disappointed. There are also good teachers. When I failed on the exam, I was so depressed. My stats teacher wrote me a letter to encourage me. I was so touch on that.
