Northwood-Kensett Junior/Senior High School Reviews

This is a very small school, which I think makes learning a bit easier. With a smaller classroom setting, you are able to have more one-on-one time with the teachers. Most of the teachers are very friendly and want to see you grow in your studies. There are a few teachers that have a different way of teaching that can make learning the material harder sometimes, but they still try to help you succeed. The athletic programs and other clubs offered at the school are very inclusive. They try to let anybody who is eligible to participate. Most of the people here are also friendly and include new people into their friend groups.

There are quite a few extracurricular activities at our school, most of them being sports. There's football, girls and boys basketball, volleyball, wrestling, track, trap shooting, to name some of them. There's anime club, Spanish club, and math club, as well. Not very many people participate in those. But many students participate in sports.
I like this school because it is very unique. They prepare you for life outside of high school, make sure you're on the right track for graduating and passing all your classes. They make sure you watch your character, because it matters, and they emphasize it very much ( in a program called "Character Counts" for all students and staff).
