WOW! normally wouldn't write one of these reviews but I read the obviously angry personal review and felt compelled to defend the leaders of our school. Mr. Morris AND Mr. Rosa are two of the most caring and professional people I have ever met. They care about the kids at KHS and are very involved in their academic futures. They go out of their way to make sure that each kid at KHS is doing well. I have never seen Mr. Rosa or Mr. Morris act in any way but professional, always a handshake, always eye contact and always a follow up conversation. With as many students as there are at KHS I'm always amazed at how they call most of the by first name (I could never remember that many). I have had 4 kids go through this school all during their administration and it is WAY better of a school than it was when I went there. As for the school board? eh, not that impressed, but not going to complain since it is an elected seat. If you don't approve of them then DON'T vote for them, or better yet, run yourself and do something about it ! Rather than complain annonymously about a personal issue, instead of the overall school that has wonderful teachers, staff, and an excellent academic program.
Teachers are great, but Principal Morris is a total joke. How does he expect parents to take him serious when he cannot even iron his shirt nor does he have the proper command presence of a principal. He also lacks integrity and is an opportunist along with his sidekick vice principal Rosa who cannot even look you in your eyes when you are speaking to him. He's a coward looking for a promotion by messing up the future of his students.Like a said before, teachers are great but the leadership needs a serious overhaul. I also attended and graduated from this school and its a place where you cannot go to the principal when in need because they dont care about the students, only themselves.
While this school is in a beautiful and safe community, has a GREAT band program, and open campus for everyone, I'm very disappointed by the lack of class choices. For example, the only language class offered is Spanish. I also find the fact that this school is located in Kingsburg Swedish Village, yet doesn't provide any sort of cultural education, such as Swedish history or language a little surprising, especially if we want to keep to our roots. Furthermore, school focus seems very sports-related.
Having just graduated from Kingsburg High, and now meeting new people who graduated from other schools, I can see, very plainly, that Kingsburg HS is a standout. Our music program thrives on dedication; not on a drive to win competitions. Our sports teams are very respectable, namely our water sports, soccer, basketball and baseball. Our school also tests very high on State Standardized Testing, ranking 5th in the 05-06 schoolyear out of 51 schools in the region and being bested only by four other schools twice the size of KHS. This is a wonderful place to learn and to grow.
This school I have to say Is One Of The Worsts Now. It used to be so much better, but now i see these teachers, and the principals are not respectful at all. So i recommend to all the parents to not let there kids go here unless you want to Ruin their Career,Future.
