Kearsley helped me succeed, and overall, gave me a new experience in social aspects and academics. I give them three stars only because, as a edgenuity and special education student, I feel there is not enough opportunities. S.E. especially can be forgotten, or brushed over. It is mostly about athletes and A.P. students. As a student, I was refused many classes solely because I was special education. Don't get me wrong, they have some great aspects academically for special needs if you are behind or have a physical disability. But those wanting to be in "harder" classes are usually turned down. As a high school senior, edgenuity students are almost forgotten in every aspect. We usually are labeled as 'the bad ones who have no future'. Sure, some students are disrespectful and behave terribly, but that isn't everyone. I take edgenuity to move ahead of other students. Yet the reputation unfortunately stands for everyone.

I’ve been a Kearsley student my whole life, so going into high school I new many of my classmates and teachers. Kearsley High School has brought me different opportunities, such as being in the National Honor Society, being the editor in chief of the school newspaper, and dual enrolling at a local community college. However, if I were to change anything about my school I would change the communication within administration and with students, I end up having to search for information I need instead of teachers preparing me and administration giving me options. I would also like to see more college prep classes in the curriculum, as well as more options for online classes.
I've been here since 5th grade. To be honest, I've made some amazing friends that are the reason I still live here. However, so many of them have turned fake through the years which made me realize that that's how so many people are at Kearsley. The teachers are mostly rude and arrogant. They just focus on tests and exams rather than the student. The school is trashy and lazy in my opinion. There's plenty of potential but it's not gonna get better anytime soon.
