Pretty good school but also very tedious. There are some teachers that gives an awful amount of schoolwork, but having good time management and actually doing your work will get you through. Freshman to Junior year were pretty chill, but reaching Senior year was when things started to get very tedious, especially when you had to focus on both personal and school life. Students were well-behaved but a lot of them, mainly freshmen, always get caught vaping in the bathroom. I advise that you do these activities at your own personal time because it’s incredibly annoying when the bathrooms are closed at certain times. The school definitely needs a lot of improvements like being a specific race to enter school because of “racial ratio” (don’t know why that’s a thing), how education supposed to work (take Finland for ex.), and making a better schedule (not that hard). To all the freshmen of Kenner Discovery, don’t mess with the teachers nor the seniors. Know your place.
Being a graduate from Kenner Discovery I can say that it is a great school to go to. They keep the safety of their students and teachers in mind with every decision. They have many opportunities for many majors like nursing and culinary. The teachers are also very hands on with students and will help them through any struggles they have both physically and academically. I definitely recommend!
KDHSA is definitely a great school. The school is constantly improving by adding new programs and activities. The teachers are all very experienced and strive to teach their students everything they can to get them ready for the next step after high school. One thing I would have loved to see was a French language or an engineering class. These are both classes that are in my interests, and it would be beneficial for me to start learning about these topics earlier. Another thing I wish to change is the menu. At the Kenner Discovery Jefferson campus I was on, the menu unfortunately consisted of almost all junk food. The principal assured us that the new campus will only be providing healthy food options from now on. Overall, I am glad I came to Kenner Discovery Health Sciences Academy and get to continue my education at such a wonderful school.
