Saint Xavier High School
- Private School
- Louisville, KY
Senior: My experience at St. Xavier was phenomenal. I had the best experience with teachers, students, and everything in between. I have made some lifelong friends over my four years. I recieved the best possible education abailible to me in my city. My teachers were always zealous about their jobs and would do whatever it took to help me out when I needed it. They would even drop sports practices or meetings to meet with me. I have learned about my faith life and I got an oppurtunity to explore myself spiritually. Truly the best times of my life so far were when I was a student at St. X. I love my school. I am not looking forward to having to leave this awesome place for college, but I am excited to see what college holds for me as Saint Xavier has prepared me for college and my future in indecribable ways.

- Kenton County Public Schools, KY
Senior: Simnon Kenton offers a WIDE selection of electives and extra-curriculars. If something isn't offered, you can make a proposition and start a club or group yourself. It's easy!
The staff are great. They are knowledgeable about their content areas and are willing to go the extra mile to help students.
For a semi-rural Kentucky school, there is surprisingly, a decent amount of diversity. While having students of varying races and religions is always best, there is a small pocket of the stereotypical redneck contingency that gets on everyone else's nerves. They are harmless, just ignorant, and the school manages them VERY well.
