Kentlake High School Reviews

For the most part, I enjoyed my teachers and classmates throughout my high school career. The only downside to the school, besides the occasional yet inevitable drama, would be what we were being taught and what the "must-learn" and/or required subjects were. I personally believe that some of the things that are taught there are unnecessary and will not be beneficial to me later on in life, but should be replaced with classes that focus on teaching young adults how to manage their finances for example.

I enjoy the environment of Kentlake High School, although some things can be improved upon. I love the fact that I am able to do "Running Start", which helps me get ahead in life. I also love all the different clubs Kentlake offers. Even if you cannot find a club you like, you can make one very easily! It is very easy to get involved at my school. Along with getting involved outside of class, teachers really push the student to get involved in the classroom. The teachers at Kentlake really care about your education and want you to succeed in life. They are willing to take time out of their day to help you in any way you need it! One thing I would change about Kentlake is the the physical school itself. It is nice, but hard to find classrooms at first. Also, my school begins many projects, like painting pillars, but tend not to finish them quickly. All that takes a back seat to the education I am presented with!
Kentlake High School was a good educational center for what it was worth, but there are some things that could really use some work. Teacher-student involvement was slim, and it seemed like most kids were only interested in studying to get good grades, not studying to learn. This is a common problem at many high schools in America. It's crucial to me that students enjoy the high school experience AND adequately prepare for adulthood.
