I have attended Kentridge High School for all 4 years of my high school career. I was very nervous about going in. I didn't know anyone, while many of the kids already had buddies from middle school. I was quickly alleviated from my anxiety, when one of the seniors, his name was Kevin (we still talk to this day), approached me and asked if I needed help finding my classes. I suddenly felt that I was afraid for nothing. We made small talk at first, but as we walked the school halls we started relating to each other and quickly became friends by the time I got to my first-period classroom. I went about my first day of high school confidently thanks to Kevin, and I felt like I enjoyed many of my days at this school. There are many options for support with grades or any other issues you may be going through. The school is large but not difficult to navigate. There are a wide variety of fun clubs and sports. I wouldn't go to any other school if I had a choice. Go Chargers!

Although I have only been to this school for two years, I certainly fall in love with its diversity, and staff members who are willing to help students. First, Kentridge High School's diversity is incredible. The school itself is filled with different backgrounds and ethnicity. This makes the school more unique and exciting. Not only that, students in the school is able to explore many cultures through clubs, learning traditions and practices of Japanese, Chinese, and more. Furthermore, teachers in the school are open to students and are willing to help them when they need. For example, the school establishes a math club to help students with math problems. However, there are some changes need to be made. For instance, teachers should explain and go through the videos so that students could prevent further frustration and confusion. In addition, teachers should also prevent using textbooks as main resources and get students involve in class activity more.
Kentridge High School has an excellent diversity and racism is rarely a case. With people coming from various background, you are exposed to different characters and cultures that help you shape your cognition of the world. You will find classes you enjoy as Kentridge provides many courses that other schools do not offer. No matter what interests or needs you have, the school makes sure you feel included and that you are well-equipped. Despite the goods Kentridge provides, there are still disappointing factors. It is difficult to communicate with the school administration as they rarely reply to emails, and that your counselor may not be able to counsel you as they barely remember your name. Kentridge is also very helpless when it comes to their students' mental health. They are not prepared to assist students who might have depression, or they are weak at detecting students' vulnerability. However, I do believe majority of the students are mentally happy.
