Kearny SCT was a difficult school. The classes were challenging. However, this school had the best teachers imaginable. Most were willing to meet with you if you ever needed help and were always willing to work with you if you were responsible. The courses prepared me for college classes (which were offered through Kearny). There was also any club you could possibly want and if they don't have it, you can make your own.
Kearny SCT is great for those seeking a path in the medical field. The school allows you to take classes that will benefit your college applications, for example AP Biology. This course allows the student to get an aspect of what to expect in a college biology class, also allowing you to take the test in which one is suitable to allow you to enroll into a higher biology course, hence an advantage once enrolled in the college of choice.
