This small school prepares students in both the Biomedical field and the technological field(more people follow the medical path such as Ap Bio and Human Body Systems, the Technological field consists CIS and Ap Computer Science), the people that you'll be interacting in this school are very fun to be around and the teachers are very understanding(they want the students to succeed and they give their own advice and ready us for College/life in general). The clubs that are offered in this school are plenty which means it's very good to interact with people and learn new things. The lunch is average with the students.

Some things that I enjoyed throughout my experience at Kearny SCT was being in an environment where I could comfortably communicate with my classmates and teachers. They faculty and school administrators are always willing to help if anyone is in need or has any questions. Something that I thought was quite regretful was how the classrooms are not able to fit some of our needs, such as having room and space to make us feel comfortable.
Kearny SCT prepares students for the biomedical field by providing the pathway that involves multiple science courses that include but are not limited to: Human Body Systems, Biomedical Innovations, etc. The teachers really care about the students and engage students to strive better academically. Although the clubs here are average, Kearny SCT allows students to create their own clubs through IMIN. Food is average.
