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.

Kenner Discovery HS for has been a little all over the place, from starting at a different campus and moving in the middle of the year to starting a month late because of construction reasons. I have been at Kenner Discovery since I was in 6th grade and I am now a high school senior. I've enjoyed the time that I have had here, and I understand the school is new and is being built so I may not have the best campus at the moment but, the education is great, teachers will sit down to make sure you have everything down packed. The students are nice, I feel like I have a little family here, we are all in. Overall, I think Kenner Discovery is a great school to go to.
Good school the teachers and the people are nice. Friendly environment, however older students get talked down on like children. The administration stress and focus on the trivial stuff. They care about each student and will try hard to help them to get them to where they need to be
