I was in a car accident in sophomore year of high school and missed three months of high school. They made a lot of accommodations and helped me out greatly to get me back on track to graduate. The curriculum is great and the school provides a lot of different opportunities for different fields of study, which isn't offered at other schools in the county. However, being such a big school with so many students, there isn't a lot of opportunity for one on one time with counselors and such.

At Kokomo High School, I am given countless educational and extracurricular opportunities that I can't get anywhere else. At Kokomo, all students are able to choose the curriculum and classes that fit their interests and learning styles. Also, there are countless extracurricular activities that we are given the opportunity to join. All clubs varying from Student Council to Harry Potter Club allow students to find activities they enjoy to spend time in to benefit themselves, the school, and the community.
Throughout my high school career so far has been one big experience! One of the qualities that Kokomo High School has and that I am very happy with is the teachers. Most of the teachers at the school take time to get to know their students and they use different teaching styles to help their students learn more efficiently. On the other hand I would like to see change at the school. Most specifically with the dress code. What I have noticed at the school when it comes to dress code is it is subjective. The school dress code requires shorts, dresses or skirts to be at least mid thigh length. I have noticed when it comes to this rule girls on the less curvy side can wear athletic, running shorts, etc... and it be okay where a more curvy girl that would try to wear the same type of clothing would be dressed coded.
