Kecoughtan High School is where I had wanted to go since 6th grade. It was always out of district for me, but they had an academy program for art which I had to apply to, to be able to attend. I got in and so did all my friends, so we were extremely happy to all be going to the same high school! When I got to Kecoughtan, it was much different than what I had expected. I wanted my high school experience to be full of school spirit and all around a good time. Turns out, we have no school spirit. I still dress up for spirit days and go all out for pep rally, but other people in our school make it as if supporting the school is lame. Personally, showing school spirit and making bad situations into good ones makes or breaks the high school experience.

Kecoughtan is a pretty good school. The classes are interesting, and the teachers care about the students' education. However, it is very dirty, and every year there seem to be more students crowding the already busy halls, causing schedule mix-ups, tardies, and unhappy students. I feel like it would be a good idea to apply the "red zone, yellow zone, green zone" system, since the administration cares more about phones being out in the halls than actually doing their jobs. Other than that, I like Kecoughtan.
I like the overall atmosphere of my school, but I think there could still be some improvements! I feel that some of the clubs and sports do not get enough recognition as they should.
