I really enjoyed my experience at Kenston High School! One of my favorite things about the school is that it is very clean and new! The school is a little over ten years old, and it has been kept in very good shape. The teachers are very passionate and helpful. The school allows students to express themselves without many strict rules. Many opportunities are offered to students throughout their career at Kenston. The classes offered are also important because not all schools offer classes such as: Geology of the National Parks, Pre-calculus, and Mythology. Overall, I am proud to say that I will be a graduate and alumni of Kenston High School.

The teachers are great! Everyone in the community is super involved with Kenston and loves to support our academic and athletic activities. Classes can be challenging, but proper time and effort spent on homework and studying will result in good grades. If teachers see that your effort is there, you will succeed! Kenston has a lot of out of school activities and clubs to get invovled in. As a Kenston alumni, I can confidently say that there is either a sports team or club that will meet your interests. Sports are a pretty big deal at Kenston, especially Friday night football games and volleyball matches. Kenston is very safe and has lots of practice drills for fires, intruders, etc. The administration is very involved in student life and is always looking for ways of improvement.
What I personally enjoyed about Kenston High School is that they provide activities for all interests whether that be sports, art, drama, unicycling..etc. The school is very clean and well organized. The faculty is wonderful and they really allow a hands-on learning environment that is adapted for all types of learning languages. They give a lot of opportunities for students to shine and grow throughout their high school experience.
