Kemp High School Reviews
The school has problems with student misconduct as well as core classes having below-average education. There are some college classes you can take as well as some good teachers but the majority is disappointing. The theatre and band department however are above-average and have great directors. Athletics is about average as well but the athletic students tend to slide by on barely doing anything in school. My main concern is with the constant vaping that has hit the school the past two years and the bathrooms in which the students vape in is also very dirty and some of them have obscene graffiti and broken toilets and sinks. Overall it is a school with much needed improvement to education and student conduct.
Here at Kemp High School, our administrators and staff make sure that we are in a safe and educational environment where we can prepare ourselves for the real world. But what I like about Kemp High School is that no matter how many questions you ask the teachers,when you need help, they end up helping you work it out. Some people may say that Kemp's education is horrible but it is not true, the only reason a lot of these students have a low average is because they do not take the time, cooperation, and effort to do their work in school. My overall rating for the school, staff, and administration is five stars because no matter how many obstacles they have, they end up finding a solution to the problem to please the district.
I came from an even smaller school and I just personally believe that there are many things that need to change about Kemp High School. The way that people treat each other here is absolutely sickening, but then again, they don't know how to stay out of other people's business. The schools academics are decent but not the best, however they do offer more career opportunities than smaller schools usually do. There are better schools out there, but this school is not the worst.
