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.
It's an overall good school, the teachers are dedicated to their job and are willing to help you learn no matter the situation you are in. The sports program is constantly growing and offering more and more opportunities for students who wish to play. With the recently newly built building, it allows more students and families to be closer together.
I have been a student at Kenner Discovery since the 5th Grade , since my time at Kenner Discover I have Grown as a person I have built up confident , this school change my life , since day 1 I have always felt excepted. I will be forever grateful for that!
