My experience was overall pretty great. I honestly feel fairly prepared for my future endeavors. I like the availability to take AP or online classes through local colleges if the school doesn't offer it. Most of the teachers were readily available if you needed their help. However, it would be nice to know what all is actually offered so that you can gain more experience to better help determine what career you would like to go into. We also need more availability of our counselors. With close to 1000 students and only 2 available adults to run class scheduling, college prep help, and any other need a student has, it's hard to get in and receive the help that you need and deserve.

I really value the education that I have received from Thornapple Kellogg High School. Here, I have been given a great opportunity to take advanced placement classes and that will help me jump ahead as a college student. I also think that Thornapple Kellogg has an amazing student body, filled with teenagers that are eager to show their school spirit as sporting events and other school activities. The teachers are helpful and the students are competitive.
I love TK, every encounter with a teacher I’ve ever had has been amazing. They all want to push their students to the next level, will meet at any time, and will always be there. School spirit and sports are very important, and they have a small town, Friday night lights vibe that most students appreciate but not recognize how special it truely is.. compared to other cities around them. Love the atmosphere of Thornapple Kellogg, and some very successful people have came out of the tkhs halls as well.
