What I loved most about Kennesaw Mountain was the atmosphere. The school was well-decorated and smelled decent most of the time and everyone there tried their best to make it a pleasant place to come to every day. Most of the teachers there are amazing and are always ready to help. You can really tell that some of them are passionate about teaching and are there just for the kids. Overall, a pretty amazing high school experience. GO MUSTANGS!

My experience at Kennesaw Mountain High School will be one that I remember forever. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there, and I feel like I have grown a lot from my experiences. Kennesaw Mountain High School is a STEM Magnet school with students of high ability in many areas. Students there are given opportunities that allowed them to explore their interests to a great extent, whether that interest be in sports, academics, or music. I was able to challenge myself with tough classes and to learn to overcome obstacles. I honestly feel like KMHS prepared me for college and future life in a lot of ways. Throughout my time there, the staff, faculty, and administration has always been very kind to me, and they have encouraged students to build good character and succeed. If your child is lucky enough to attend a school like this, then they have the ability to shape their future.
Kennesaw Mountain has a great STEM and Magnet program. There are many clubs to choose from and students can even make their own. The teachers really care about students success. The admin works hard. Most students are intelligent and vibrant people and it's a pretty good atmosphere. The sports games are fun and entertaining, but some of the skills on the football field and basketball court are subpar. The downsides: restrooms and culinary arts kitchen need fixing/updating. pep rallies don't really seem to be catered to the students and aren't very entertaining. Also, we don't have much variety with lunch. It's the same things every day or every other day.
