I really like Kelvyn Park because the teachers and staff really care about the students, and although we don't have many resources, the teachers do try to make sure the students succeed. If there's one thing I could change is that we get more money for the school. I believe if we had more money we could get more sports in the school and resources.

I joined this school over a year ago, I transferred in from Fort Lauderdale High School, my first year was quite easy and laid back, the sports program is good but many of the students are not dedicated. The counselors have way too much to do, it took a year and my personal request for them to actually import my grades from my previous school into my transcript, also while applying to colleges the counselor failed to send out my transcripts, test scores, and any other documents that colleges needed, me and other students often had to resort to either repeatedly requesting materials to be sent out or to send the materials ourselves. The school is generally disorganized, underfunded, and understaffed.
You either have teachers that are very involved and passionate about teaching and others that don't care much. This school has suffered from many budget cuts, getting rid of amazing teachers and essential programs and advisors. KP failed in preparing me for college. As far as math classes, all of my teachers were either substitutes or most of our work were online worksheets.
