During my time at Kofa High School I have had the great opportunity to participate in many programs and volunteer projects with the help from my teachers and counselors. I joined AP classes to challenge my skills and abilities as a student throughtout the four years and joined HOSA and Skills-USA. I did countless volunteer hours for my Sports-Medicine program and Business Leadership Internship program as well. I would definitely return to this high school because of it's welcoming atmosphere from the teachers, counselors, and security. Moreover, the environment on camous is beautiful and shows the student's involvement in various clubs, for example, the mosaic tile made from ceramics 1 and 2 students with the help of the ceramic teacher and administration allowing the students to hang in front of the auditorium.
Review Kofa High School
Academically the courses are not as demanding as I would have liked, with the exception of AP classes which are much better at preparing students for college. I just wish there were more of these classes available. I personally disliked the Cambridge curriculum I just felt a lot was left out in order to follow it. Sports and clubs are what made the experience of high school one of the best. It is what helps one develop and make new friends while doing things you enjoy. If anything I just wish I had more time in order to participate in everything that was available. School doesn't seem like much and all we want is for it to end but now that I am close to leaving I realize how much I will miss my high school, especially those teachers that were always there for their students. There are many teachers who were not there because they had to but because they wanted and truly cared about their students and I am simply grateful for having the chance to learn and interact with them.
The teachers at Kofa High School are great. However, all teachers have a different way of teaching for example, one english teacher may use more group activites and engage the students by using real life problems, whereas, the other techer prefers using sections of a workbook to get through the topics and does less group activites and more individual projects. So it all depends on the teacher and how they effectively teach the students. In that being said, most of the teachers are available before, during and after school hours which allows students more time to complete or ask any questions about a project or subject they don't understand in class.
