Kountze High School Reviews

The faculty and staff try to be involved with the students and are always trying to have something that they would think would be fun for the students. It is a very small school and it has a decent atmosphere. There are many different classes that are offered to further the knowledge of the student, possibly in the field of study for the degree the student wants to pursue. The school offers medical classes for students that want to pursue the medical field and a retired nurse teachers the medical classes and knows what she is teaching about. There are welding classes and shop classes that will give the student life skills that will be useful. If there were a few things that I had to change, it would be some of the faculty at the school because some of the teachers and even administrators make the school an undesirable place. Some teachers do not understand that some students learn differently than others and do it all one way and will not accept any other way.

Kountze is a good small town school! The staff are friendly and the community is close knit. The class sizes average about twenty-five students to one teacher. The school district is very big on their basketball teams. What it lacks in academics compared with other schools it makes up with hospitality.
Kountze High School is an average small town High School, but there are some teachers who help push us towards the future. Some of the prime subjects that have good education to push towards college would mostly be our Science and English courses, but out Art and Math courses have good teachers. The Art teacher has helped many of her students enter competitions to gain scholarships. Our Pre-Calculus/ Calculus teacher has helped our lead students to learn for College and to pass our Advanced Placement tests. Even with our minor flaws here and there, it is an overall good school.
