I've attended Kennesaw Mountain High School for all of my high school career. There have been many challenges, but over it is a great school. Every school has their strengths and weaknesses, a weakness for my school is the preparation for college readiness. My school focus mainly on the magnet students than any others. A normal student, such as my self, have to work harder and be more independent than the other students. A huge strength of my school is the graduation rate, the expectation, and the academics. Kennesaw Mountain High School is listed as number seventeen on the best schools in Georgia, not to mention ninety-one percent of the senior class carriers on to college. Many of the senior class carry on to big schools like Yale, Georgia Tech, and Harvard just to name a few. Over all my schools is one o the best and Im happy to say i will be graduating from there class of 2018!
Review Kennesaw Mountain High School
Kennesaw Mountain High School has an extremely welcoming environment. This school strives for the best when it comes to school spirit and student representation. This school is big on academics, especially with the magnet program it offers to students. Kennesaw Mountain is the only school nationwide that has the STEM certification from both AdvancED and Georgia. It is rated the most positive school in Cobb County, and it is rated #12 out of 426 when it came to the best GA public schools in 2017 by Niche. KMHS provides so many learning opportunities for their students, and I wouldn't have it any other way. They are extremely supportive of their students in their academia and extracurriculars. I would try to improve the options for culture representation opportunities. Overall, KMHS has a positive and welcoming environment that everyone enjoys and respects.
Kennesaw Mountain High School is a great School with great students, staff, and amazing school spirit. The school provides students a great oppurtunity for quality education thats also preps them college. The school has made me home my experiences and peeped me for the reality of the world. The teachers are very caring and are great leaders that will guide you into the realm of success. The Sport teams are also progressing each year and developing more talent and for the athletics section. Overall Kennesaw Mountain High School Is truly a wonderful school that does stand out amongst other schools.
