What I liked about Kearny DMD was the diversity of students. Located in an area with numerous multicultural backgrounds, students are learning in an environment with many others, making the learning experience enjoyable. The teachers are supportive, but I would like to see more honors and AP courses offered.
Kearny DMD is a project based school where the teachers are genuinely engaged with every single student and help us hone skills for us to apply to into the future. Skills such critical thinking, how to be civically engaged with our community, how to think innovatively, and most importantly college and career readiness. I have made many memories and friends at this school, and I will be wholeheartedly will miss this school once I graduate this coming 2018.
