William J. (Pete) Knight High School Reviews
Review William J. (Pete) Knight High School
Overall, education was average unless you were in one of the programs the school had to offer. Fortunately, I was in the Digital Design and Engineering Academy which offered the same teachers all four years and students only had classes with those in the academy which helped build close connections. The academy offered classes, not available to all students, that were career based for those looking to purse design or engineering. Students could reach out and receive help with homework, scholarships, even personal problems and the academy teachers were always happy to help, usually going above and beyond to keep students in check academic wise and guided those with troubles outside of school. The academy also offered many clubs and volunteer experience so by the time college application season came, students were exceptionally prepared. If it weren't for the academy, I'm not sure how my time at Pete Knight would have been.
High School is never how it's portrayed in movies. But, i have to admit, Knight High School gets pretty close. It has plenty of school spirit and our marching band is amazing! Homecoming games make you feel like you're in a High School movie. There is, sadly, peer pressure to do drugs and alcohol though but that mainly depends on who your child is hanging out with. I've never been peer pressured or even been offered drugs or alcohol because i hang out with good kids who know to stay away from it.
I spent all four years in KHS. I have had regular classes and AP classes. The teachers are for the most part amazing, most of the AP classes I took were not constantly overwhelming, the teachers valued my education and looked at me as an adult who can make my own decisions. Although I didn't like how we took a health class for two semesters of freshmen year, I think it would be smarter to have one semester teach geography(which is a newly added elective) then the second semester teach health. There is a wide variety of students who attends, although the majority is of black and Hispanic background.
