I like the school the teacher, really get to know their students and what type of home they come from. One thing I would like to see change about the school is showing more spirit throughout the year. Other than that everything at the school is great, the town really supports the athletic program in all sports, and stand up for the students.
My experience at Kerens Independent School District has been amazing from the start. Most of the people who go to this school have been their most of their lives or their parents went to this school. Since it is a very small town everyone knows each other for the most part and everyone is very friendly and kind.
