My high school experience was definitely a major factor on my life. The diversity, school activities and safe surroundings made KHS the best place to get my education. The teachers are very personable and are always willing to help their students. Athletic events at KHS are never one to miss! And now with our renovated and newly built buildings it is safer and a nicer environment to be in. If there was one thing I had to change about KHS would be the SAT and ACT prep. There has never been a class to take in the high school, and the work shops we did have were never really publicized so a lot of people didn't know about them

You have the opportunity to complete college level courses while still in high school, the staff is usually pretty kind however there are some exceptions as with most schools. They have resources for many things such as social workers and a pantry for kids who don't get enough food and there's opportunities to get jobs and awards. The music department is a very amazing thing to be a part of, and many athletes are happy with their teams. With all the new construction, the new buildings are clean, pleasing to see and easy to navigate.
The recent expansions have been great, and the school now feels new and exciting again for the first time in decades. Class selection is pretty broad, although sometimes getting into the electives you want can be difficult. Teachers are pretty good, but almost every year you get one or two that clearly don't care about their students. Student body is huge, with pretty great diversity, but the big size leads to some safety issues, although they're mostly kept under control. We could use more clubs, and the lack of any school dances besides prom is a pain because people host a surprisingly low amount of parties.
