Knoxville Senior High School Reviews

Knoxville is a small community and the school district overall is pretty good. The teachers are nice and friendly. The class sizes aren’t to big, they’re the right size where the teacher can help everyone with their individual needs. Because the community is small everyone knows everyone in the school. The overall high school experience here is fun!

The class sizes are around 70-80 kids, which allows for the small town feel of almost everyone knowing everyone while still being big enough for students to be able to branch out and make new friends. The building itself is large, spacious, and new. The teachers at this school are very flexible with their schedules and are always willing to give extra help on homework. The sports program at Knoxville High school is as good as can be expected from a school in such a small town. The football team is strong and has made it to playoffs for many years and has the support of the time. Other sports found at Knoxville High School include wrestling, track, basketball, baseball, volleyball, cheer, and dance. The only problem with the sports program is that there are not enough students for other sports such as soccer and tennis.
Knoxville High School has a lot of great things going for it now and in the future. With the expansion of clubs and activities such as Robotics, Esports, Drama Club, Student Council etc. more students are involved. Knoxville also has great athletics programs, with a lot of community support. (Almost too much support, which makes most focus only on athletics). But in the future Knoxville is shifting its focus. Now the school finally has AP options and online schooling for students that want to take more rigorous and college ready classes. Average students won't have a problem passing as coursework isn't difficult in most classes. The newly built, "modern" highschool is amazing to be in and makes the Knoxville experience much better.
