Despite funding cuts at the Federal and State level, the Kenai Peninsula Borough funds our schools to the maximum cap. Two of my children have graduated, my youngest son is in 11th grade. I've found the teachers dedicated, remarkable people, going above and beyond in many instances, of what their job description details. The community works hard to support the schools and provide extra-curricular activities. Our 2002 graduate joined the Marines, our daughter has completed her first semester at a private New England college. We are grateful that Seward High School teachers, counselors, and coaches prepared our children so well for the life paths they've chosen.
