The thing I enjoyed most about KHS would be all the people. I enjoyed KHS because they tried to make everything feel like home truly. Sometimes the teachers would push people to do things whether that was actually studying or getting on them in class, but it was for a reason. They all wanted you to succeed, nobody wanted anyone to fail. I remember something that happened awhile ago where we had a KHS graduate get into a car accident and everyone in KHS whether they knew the kid or not grieved. He was a part of our family. You could really see everyone come together and make sure everyone was okay. We also recently had a teacher pass away, and I am currently graduated from there, but everyone that had went to KHS or currently goes there grieved, and we all came together again for that. And I think that's one of the greatest things I enjoyed about KHS. We were all family whether we liked it or not.

From my experience at Kearsley I have had an amazing high school career. I have been helped academically by both my teachers and my counselors at the school and have always been pushed to do the best work I possibly could. No matter the situation I have always been able to go to my teachers and get advice that has been able to help me throughout school and while applying to college. I love the community aspect that is very evident through the school, no one is left out and we try to give back to the community as much as we possibly can through different charity events we have with NHS and our student council. I think the one thing I would change is having a wider range of courses to take, like wood working or home ec.
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.
