Overall I like my school pretty well. There’s a good selection of different courses from the variety of core classes to get you ready for college to languages (even Chinese!) to extras like cooking, computer classes, automotive, art, music, a lot. Some teachers good, some really good. My favorites - tech teachers. There’s quite a few different clubs. I wish kids would check these out more. You meet other kids that you might not otherwise meet and have something in common with and potential new friends. That’s what happened to me. Nice library and a wide selection of food in the cafeteria. To teachers - get to know students, things aren’t always what they seem.
I loved my experience at Keene High! Classes were great- lots to choose from. Teachers are prepared and professional, knowledgeable. Lots of clubs! I was involved in Drama Club, and our performances were amazing! Lots of Music and Art classes, too. A great school overall!
