While Kings Park High School does have its flaws, it is an overall great experience. There is a variety of classes students can take and it ranges greatly in terms of difficulty. The teachers are great and push students to be the best they can. However, it can feel like teachers are telling you information rather than explaining how the lessons relate to the real world and can be beneficial in the future. Also, the bathrooms are not the greatest; the ceiling in one is deteriorating and are not big enough, especially near the cafeteria.

I really enjoyed my time at Kings Park High School! The amazing faculty and staff challenged me academically, something I really appreciated once I started college. There are endless resources, such as AP classes, extra help sessions, and a study block every other day! I loved the wide variety of clubs and sports - definitely something for everyone. In addition, the school has been doing major renovations, making it a more exciting place to be everyday! Proud to be a KP Alumna!
Kings park high school is great academically. You have 80 minute periods unlike average 40 minute ones which prepares you for college length classes. However, kings park high school had very stringent rules especially for seniors about to go off to college. The administration must act less like a prison and more like a school
