Ketchikan High School
37 Best Public High Schools in Alaska
- Ketchikan Gateway Borough School District, AK
Senior: Ketchikan High School, also known as Kayhi, isn't just a high school to me. It's a place where memories and relationships are made. The teachers and staff at the school go out of their ways to help students achieve their goals, but also create new ones. Every single day when I walk into that building I am greeted with smiles and good mornings. At Kayhi there are many clubs and activities that a student can join such as Pep Club, Rotary Interact, Chess Club, etc. Heartbreaking to think that in less than a year I will be ending my journey at Kayhi, and will be continuing it somewhere else. Go Kings!

Roanoke Catholic School

Senior: Roanoke Catholic is a school that teaches students belong the classroom and prepares them for either college. In the past years, 100 percent of Catholic seniors have attended college and this year the seniors have received over 2.5 million in scholarships. I started Roanoke Catholic two years ago and it was a big change coming from public school. In public schools you could slide by without doing your homework, but at Roanoke Catholic all work is required and graded as a test grade. Roanoke Catholic does not let you fall through the cracks. I also must say the food is outstanding!!
One thing I really did not like were the uniforms. In public school you basically wore what you want, but not in private school. My first year the gentlemen had to wear a shirt and tie during the winter and in the summer a polo shirt with the school’s logo and khaki pants or shorts. This year they changed the dress code to where gentlemen could wear the polo shirt and khaki pants all year around.
