Being a new family to this school, I cannot comment on the actual school, administration & staff yet. But, I have to laugh at the review posted stating the school is "bad, pregnant women, smoking and drinking, etc." I think this is an age old thing in high schools? I consider myself a protective (sometimes over protective) parent but I am also realistic. So far, the kids and staff at KHS have been very kind & welcoming to our family. When I think of what some inner city schools are like along with places we've been so far (as a military family traveling often) I think KHS will be a welcomed change for our family. Some schools can be too big, overwhelming & too fast paced causing kids to feel stressed & less like kids. As parents we need to be in tune with our own children & know who, what, where and when. Although we can't control their EVERY move or choice, we can be vigilant & aware. This will help the "badness" of any school. Most kids with strong parental supervision will not fall into the category of "bad" that the person before me wrote of. However, we are all human & teens in particular are going to fall victim more so than most, no matter what school one attends.

About the tests
