KHS! School of greatness. There is A lot you can say about this school. High caliber education, school spirit out of this world, and one of the best sports programs in Texas. There is nothing more than greatness about this school.
Review Kilgore High School
I feel like I've been cheated of my education from all the time wasted in class. My teacher left the other day to go to the bank! When he got back we had 17 minutes left in class, then he answered his phone when trying to explain something to us. The counsellors are fantastic at their job if you can get past the watchdog. School spirit is dead. Died with whatever is making that horrible stinch in the history wing. The only skills learned at KHS are those of physical talents and trickery. The most funded organization at this school is football, and all the strict rules teach kids to be sneaky.
Kilgore was a new experience for me. I moved to KHS spring semester sophomore year. It's been an incredibly mixed two and a half years as well. There have been numerous times when it was an absolutely horrible place. The principals are at times, atrocious and beyond incapable of their jobs. At other times they seem to mature by a mile and manage even the most complicated things.
