I love kickapoo, there are a ton of different clubs and activities one can be in! Not only that, but the teachers are very helpful and understanding of possible conflicts. They truly care about you and value your time. Kickapoo is a wonderful school for any student who wants to be in an activity, do well in school, and still maintain an active social life!

I think that in my first few years at Kickapoo the administrated struggled to control an unwelcoming and hostile student body, but in my final year, along with administration changes came a newfound desire to make Kickapoo into a friendly and welcoming environment for all students attending. I wish that this change had come earlier, but I do believe that the school is heading in the right direction. Kickapoo has plenty of teachers and faculty that adore their job and their students and are willing to make the necessary sacrifices to help out a child in need or give them a little extra push, which is what I think makes the school so special. There's always an adult who's willing to give advice, direction, or just listen to any problem you might be having.
Kickapoo is a very good school in the district. They have lots of excellent programs and clubs available for students. Students are given many opportunity's to thrive and find their passions in this school. Teachers are involved and care about students, and administration is passionate about learning and student safety.
The facility is new and clean, and well kept up with. The students are well controlled, and have a good balance of freedom and structure.
My child had enjoyed their time and Kickapoo, and i have felt as though their time spent there has well equipped my child for college.
