Kenwood High School Reviews

When I first came here, I didn't talk to anyone for three weeks. Everyone seemed to already have their group of friends. Boy was I wrong. In my time being here, I've realized that, yes, everyone has their specific group of friend that they hang out with the most, but it's not clique-y. It's not looked down if you hang out with other people, and diversity is celebrated here. That's what makes this school so unique.

My favorite experience so far is probably going to states for HOSA competition. My team spent three days at Opry Land Resort to compete. Two of our members even placed and went to nationals, and it was awesome to see their success. The thing is though, none of us really hang out outside of our HOSA meetings. Besides health occupations, we had nothing in common, but those were three days that I hope I never forget. We celebrated and just had fun.

I would choose this school all over again. I'm not zoned for this school, so I could easily go somewhere else. After the first semester, however, I knew belonged at Kenwood. I just feel more comfortable here.
Review Kenwood High School
I love attending Kenwood High School, it's an amazing school with so many different people. I have attended Kenwood all four years and I wouldn't want to go to any other school. The school has a bad reputation but after actually going to the school, I came to realize it's one of the best schools in the county.
I would say that the health and safety are the biggest priority in this school, they're a little bit too worried about what we eat. They've changed everything we eat, and the portion size of our lunch. The safety is okay too, we only have one SRO Officer. There is a possibility that we will eventually need more than one. One can't be everywhere at once. The bullying in the school is rare, but when some body is being bullied that parson takes it too far.
