Killingly High School Agricultural Education has giving me so many great opportunities. The Ag-Ed teachers are very supportive and strive to help us reach our goals. Killingly High School has allowed me to take AP courses and Agricultural Education courses while I am also being home schooled. This is an opportunity that even my own town would not allow. I am very grateful for the education I have received!

Absolutely love the Agriculture Department! My daughters have enjoyed every aspect of their experience at KHS but being able to combine their personal farming experience in an classroom setting and with the backing of FFA Membership, it has been a priceless experience.
Killingly is a great school. There are an abundance of different opportunistic for students to get involved in from business related things, to arts, and musical aspects. The academics range from general courses, college prep, honors, to Ap levels. This encourages students to take risks and engage in harder classes to challenges them further academically. Courses can be rigorous, but it is a good thing in order to help students to boost up college readiness. For extracurricular there are an abundance of sports and clubs. Sports include; football, field hockey, volleyball, basketball, lacrosse, tennis, wrestling, cross country, track and field and more. For clubs and activities there are also lots of options for people to take advantage of. Clubs include; link crew, FBLA, student council, national honor society, bible club, model un, guitar club, writers club and so much more. Overall there are lots of opportunities for students to take advantage of.
