My experience with Kecoughtan overall was very good. I had the opportunity to be involved in various organizations including, Student Council Association, Class Office, Principal Advising & Consulting Team, Football Managing, Show Choir, Varsity Volleyball, and The School Announcements Team; Several which I was president of or held leadership positions. Also, Kecoughtan is a very diverse school so I was opened to many more relationships with students of different races and cultures. One of my main reasons for enjoying my time at Kecoughtan is having a relationship with my teachers and administration. Although the student to teacher ratio is not small, many of the teachers will help their students to the best of their ability to make sure they succeed in their class. I am also in the Architectural Environmental & Engineering academy at my school and this program has really helped me prepare for my career. Kecoughtan is not just a school, it is a home. It is a family.

Kecoughtan High School is an excellent school that has very friendly and caring teachers. In this school we are one and no one gets left behind! Since my first year there, I knew from that moment that I would be graduating from there. As a senior, I have had a wonderful 4 years at Kecoughtan with the help of my teachers and assistance by the staff.
My experience at Kecoughtan High was basically what is expected of the average high school. Teachers taught and some provided life lessons I will carry with me. The guidance councilors could be a bit more helpful or prepared when it comes to college information. The school could also practice being a bit more influential and follow through on punishments. Bullying, sexual harassment, and destruction of property are all problems I went through first hand and reported yet the school provided nothing but emotional standby. Overall a good school but as expected has big points to improve on.
