The school even though just being completely renovated still has the same wholesome vibe to it. The faculty and staff are great, they care for every single student very much, and they always come to school every morning with a smile on their face. Not only are the staff very happy at KHS but the students are too! KHS offers many opportunities to explore different aspects of education. The educational system is top-notch and will continue to raise and grow with it's students.

Kenenbunk high school is known for its wonderful academics and sports teams. I love getting involved in clubs and other activities through the school. However, teachers and administrative staff have always pushed their students towards "greatness", but not in a positive way. Since I was a freshman, I always felt pushed to take the hardest classes, even if I was not passionate about the subject. I have always felt that the staff at KHS didn't care about what your passionate about, but cares more if you take every hard class, even if it takes students time away from what they really love to do. I wish that this stigma around taking every hard class would end. A second thing I wish would change, even though I know its not the schools fault, is the amount of diversity at the school. The school is dominated so highly by people who are white, I can only name about 10 people at the school who have a different ethnicity.
Kennebunk High School is a small school that will bend over backwards to help its students grow. If someone has a passion or goal that requires background knowledge or experience before college, the administration will create a class specifically for that student, so that they will be prepared for their future career.
