King's Fork High School Reviews

I am having a great experience attending King's Fork. It is truly an honor to be able to go to a school with a nice range of IB courses. The teachers here are qualified and are committed to ensuring that you understood the material. Overall, I would recommend this school to anybody who truly wants to dive deep and get their feet wet in an introductory college course-load, without the cost. Here, it is clearly evident that the school strategized the budget to ensure that paying for IB exams would never be the responsibility of the student/parent. I feel honored to have the opportunity to partake in a more liberal arts/well-rounded rigorous curriculum specifically designed to not only increase your outlets of inquiry-based learning, but also to prepare you for the various challenges of college curriculum today. With such a course-load, I feel confident that I would be well prepared for pre-medicine/pre-health studies and the MCAT exam.

King's Fork High was a new experience for me. I was zoned for NRHS, but being in the IB Program led me to KF. My review on KF isn't generalizable to the rest of the school population. Being in IB has bettered my high school experience, if I'm being honest. KF hosting the IB program uplifts the school entirely. Though IB kids don't always intermingle with the rest of the school's population, the teachers of IB greatly improve KF's staff. KF IB teachers have what other teachers lack; empathy, caring, and the want to help students improve. Often, I see teachers giving up on students or treating them differently just because they don't like them. Along with that, students are out of control sometimes. Students often get into fights and are screaming at teachers with no respect. Apart from that, KF isn't all that bad.
King’s Fork high school is a distinct school. The school Is extremely diverse and doesn’t exclude anyone. The staff and administrators are well trained and prepared to do what it takes to get their students to achieve their goals and live a bright future. The school includes a a variety of clubs and sports and encourages it’s students to stand out and participate in all school related activities. Overall, King’s Fork High School is an outstanding school, but I believe it still needs some improvement. The school holds a lot of activities but lacks the opportunities in more parent involvement.
