I would say my experience at Kentwood High School is pretty good! The staff at my school works very hard to make sure every student is on the right track, especially the teachers here. I can tell that they try to make the experience meaningful every step of the way which made it a fun experience.

Kentwood High School also offers a lot of help and support. From my experience, my school definitely try their best to make sure each student is mentally stable, valuing the importance of mental stability. As a student who is clinically depressed, I can definitely tell that the school is trying its best in every way possible.

Kentwood was a very competitive school in sports, more so leaning on Football, Softball, and Cheerleading. The academia is great as it offers a variety of AP classes (Biology, Chemistry, Psychology, Calculus) and a variety of languages to learn (Chinese Mandarin, Japanese, French, Spanish, ASL). The staff is very involved with the school sports and with the academics of their students. There were also numerous clubs for one to join, even though only a few people were in it. For example, I was in the book club for two years before I graduated in 2017 and there were less than ten members in the club. No matter the lack of people, the librarian made a tremendous effort to include all our opinions and experience with reading shine. Great experience overall!
My high school experience at Kentwood High School was average; not too bad but, not too good either. Kentwood's academics are average, they offer AP courses but, the school's overall GPA isn't super high. The teachers at Kentwood aren't the best. There are a few good ones but, they can often be overshadowed by the majority of poor teachers. Kentwood has a wide range of clubs and activities which is why I rated it well in that area. Kentwood has pretty good school culture and spirit, we usually go all out for things like spirit week and football games. Kentwood has some of the best sports teams and we have many state titles, most notably, the Cheerleading team has 28 consecutive state titles as well as 2 national titles. Kentwood's diversity is extremely high with mixes of multiple ethnic groups, cultures, and nationalities in attendance. Safety isn't the best but is overall ok, there are a few fights as well as lockdowns every year. In conclusion, Kentwood is average overall school.
