No tennis courts on campus, no study for gym, the teachers are mean, no AC in some rooms during the summer, no heat in some rooms during the winter, no study for underclassmen, only one study, pointless electives, wrong bell ringing, no 5 minute bell, counted as late when you come to class .0005 seconds after the bell, doesn't let students go out for lunch because we are trapped, only 1 parking lot, ice in the parking lot so you cannot even drive to the other end of the school or see the lines in the parking lots, starts too early, forces you to take electives even though you completed all of the necessary credits for graduation, BUT great experience overall. 10/10 recommend, send your children here! We have a police outside!

Attending Kinnelon High School has been an interesting, albeit pretty neutral experience. There are certainly people and teachers that have made my experience worthwhile, providing great insight and support. However, the lack of diversity, poor administrative decision making, and largely complacent teacher body have also made my four years frustrating. I would like for the school to use the budget in a more functional manner, purchasing and improving basic infrastructure and amenities instead of flashier, but less practical things. I would also hope that the teachers were more motivated to cultivate independent thinkers.
The AC didn't work in the summer, the heat didn't work in the winter. The student parking lot was full of ice in the winter and multiple spots were full of snow from them plowing. They wouldn't let us go out for lunch, unlike schools in the surrounding areas. At one point I was in a course I knew I would do bad in and tried dropping it but they wouldn't let me because underclassmen couldn't take study. You're forced to take pointless electives because you can't have more than one study. Some of the teachers don't even know what their talking about. But there are some great teachers in KHS, you just have to hope you get them. Faculty cares more about sports than arts or even academics sometimes but none of the students have school spirit. But hey we have police outside and go hard for spirit week so
