I moved to New Kent my Sophomore year. The change was very different from my old school. New Kent had a few different things some good and some bad. A few of the good things were that everyone had respect for each other, teachers care about the student body, and the administration also showed that they care. Some of the bad thing were that there were lots of clicks compared to my old school and there was some racism but every school has it. Everyone says that they aren't going to miss it when they go off to college but I definitely will.

My overall experience has been great at New Kent! However, some of the rules are outrageous. For example, the school punishes your grade if you show up late to class. I find this to be very unlawful and unethical to punish a student for being late.
New Kent high school is a safe and caring school and facility tries their hardest to prepare students for real life. Teachers are very friendly and care about the student's education and motivate everyone to do their best. Many students who attend here are not always respectful and they need to not tolerate this misbehavior of the students. Most work environments are wonderful, but throughout the years I attended here there was numerous of times where my education was being affected by other students being disrespectful towards the teacher.
