I was a part of the magnet program my first two and a half years but switched to dual enrollment for the last two and a half. I have found it very easy to get the schedule I want, make friends with lots of different people, and always know what is going on. That being said I do not know what the average, non-magnet or dual enrollment student deals with, but all my experience has been great!

We make jokes about Kside, but they’re just that: jokes. Not once in my four years have I regretted coming to Kennesaw Mountain. Great academics, athletics (minus football, sorry), and an amazing arts program for chorus and band and theatre especially. The best part about KMHS is the community though. Nobody is really cliquey, and students participate in lots of community service projects throughout the years. No one hesitates to hold a door open or explain a difficult concept in class. Every student has a teacher that they call their “mom” or “dad” and we’ll hang out in their classrooms. Overall a great school, with only minor changes to be made.
It’s an academically really great school! Awful environment with administration, and how they made stupid rules and restrictions on things that were not important, quite frankly it just made the days worse.
