I am currently a senior at Kirksville High School. I really enjoy the class sizes and how you get to know the teachers very well. All of the teachers are friendly and willing to help! I have taken many dual credit classes and they have prepared me very well for college. At KHS there are also lots of clubs and sports to be involved in. This year they even added in a Girls Wrestling team. Our school has recently made many improvements for safety and even before the improvements I always felt safe. Our sports teams are hard working and determined, the games are fun to watch!

Kirksville High School is a great school with amazing teachers. The principal does his best to have great teachers who love teaching and interacting with students. The education that this school presents to its students is high quality and easy to understand. The variety of different classes that you can take is high, with unique one like Conservation Biology and guitar class. My senior year here is going smoothly but packs a lot of homework, which is preparing me for college life. This year is also the first year that I decided to join extracurricular activities and I ended up joining three different clubs. This is beneficial to me because I can interact with students and teachers more often. One thing that I would like to see different is to join the group of high schools that have four-day weeks, instead of five. Kirksville High School has made a minor change in its schedules by cutting out spring break to use those vacation days for more three-day weekends.
I have had a good overall experience at Kirksville Sr. High School. Though I would like to see in the future of KHS more assistance in making sure that high school students are college ready starting freshman year. I did appreciate the teachers' open mindedness when it came to their students, and their lack of discrimination. I hope though in the future that that quality is pushed to the students as well. I appreciated all of the extracurricular options that were available to me all throughout my high school experience.
