The academics are pretty solid. The building and maintenance may need some work and improvements. Students are prepared for college in the best possible way, however more required courses for financial help could be incorporated. the student body is not that diverse, however it is a small school and there are benefits. Smaller class sizes for more personal instruction, yet that also means class sizes could be quite large. The stadium is great, and athletics are pretty popular for students.

I graduated from this high school in 2017. The teachers are all very nice and only want to see you succeed. They help you very much for what college work will be like. For example, the amount of time that you spend on learning how not to plagiarize and how to site your sources properly will ingrain it into your mind so you will never have to worry about if you are going to have a professor in college give you an F for that. The science department is pretty good. Chemistry is definitely the department's strong suit with my favorite teacher at its head. My freshman chemistry class in college was very easy because of all that I learned from him. The math department is also good. It gives you the option of going into calculus your senior year, which can be very helpful.
My experience at Kutztown Area Senior High School was very successful because of all the teachers and administration that help me get through my four years here. There were many ways for me to stay involved here that included joining chorus and show choir, along with participating in baseball, basketball, and cross country. All of my coaches helped me along the way and made my experience as good as it could be. The opportunity that I was given to take the most challenging courses that I could also made my experience here a success. I was always pushed to take harder classes so that I would be able to grow as much as possible as a student.
