This is for keystone heights high school. Being an encouraging parent. I was informed by my son that the varsity basketball coach exclaimed that if he wanted his father to coach him then he could sit in the stands next to his father. I think that is very disrespectful a varsity would say a thing like that. So I am saying I will go to the papers and anyone that will listen, I will make sure the coach knows and should be repremanded. I will make this known to the good town of keystone heights of this man and how arrogant he seems to be. Please find me in the stands if you have any more questions for me. Thank you.

to many clicks, bulling, degrading of other students, is allowed by the teachers they have no controll and more often then not they just don't care about the kids. unless you are white, and on the atlectic team be it cheerleading or otherwise you don;t count. the other major problem is having the junior high school children 14, 15, year old children with 17 and 18 year olds. One is coming into puberty and the other going into adulthood. The older less mature that seems like an adult influe the child who does not know which way is up. THIS NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED BY THE SCHOOL BOARD MIXING THE AGES IS A VERY BAD AND DANGEROUS SITUATION.

I'm a student at KHHS right now, in the eighth grade. After reading the other reviews, I feel bad for all those who don't know our school. I've lived in Keystone Heights for most of my life, and the schools are the best you'll ever probably find. Truth be told, our system is uptight and strict, but nobody is favored over anybody else. For one class period each day I assist in the office, and the administrators are nothing like what others have said. Teachers, administrators, and other staff all try to interact with us students, help as much as they can. We have amazing sports programs and kind people. We're not image-obsessed like others insist. I look forward to coming to school every day.

If you have a child that is smart and can 'fit' in with the rest of the students then this is a great school, however if you have a kid that needs special attention... forget it! If a child threatens there ratings they will find a way to 'get rid of them'.

We moved from Middleburg, I was glad to place my daughter in this school as I only heard good things. I read all the other previews and although some were negative, my approach is then do something if you have a problem. My daughter was welcomed and made to feel she was welcomed, later her group of friends changed and she found her way. She has remained an honor student, liking most teachers, some lack communication, others are very connected. This is the real world, where life starts, you learn to be independent. I think the goals at this school are reached and I am very pleased with the academics and safety they provide. High school is the best years of school and the kids should embrace it, the real world is next. How you succeed is up to you. Nothing in life is guarenteed!

My daughter just completed the 7th grade and the difference between KHES and Jr High is very notable. When in elementary you knew what was going on and I felt that during this entire year we were in the dark. The Jr High needs to provide some type of syllabus of each class so the parents know what is due and when it is due. There needs to be communication for these kids as they are learning to become adults. I just felt they expected kids from elementary to act like responsible adults way too quickly.

This school strives to help all their students achieve their individual goals. Not all students want to go to college but Keystone tries to prepare all of their students for whatever they plan to do.

This school is doing the best it can at keeping up with state mandates and yearly changes. Faculty and administration keep their focus on student achievement. They also have a strict dress code: no shorts or skirts shorter than the top of the knee. No place is perfect, but I feel safer about my child attending Keystone than I would about most other public schools.

I was a great student, but I don't think I was popular enough for the administration because when college time came around it seemed like I was having to get recommendations elsewhere.

I went to KHHS a few years ago and I pretty much hated it. It's hard for a new kid there...I came in in the 7th grade while everyone had grew up together and made there little groups up. Also when i went there, there was little to no diversity there. Some of the teachers there are great but some just do not care. Kids who play sports or are very attractive seem to be treated better by the staff and the other kids there. Of course you do not hear alot about the bad things of this school b/c they try to keep a good wholesome image. But the school really doesnt make new people feel wlecome.

Keystone Heights Jr/Sr High School is the greatest, the teachers are teachers, not baby sitters. They prepare the students for college. I have two children at Keystone Heights Jr/Sr High School, and they both love it there. Keystone Heights Band Program falls short for musical equipment when compared to other schools within the Clay County School District, but Keystone Heights has one of the best Band Directors, Go Indians.

School doesn't care about students. Teaches for tests, most children who attend this school do not go on to a major college, they are lucky to get into a community college.

While this school strives to be the best academically, if your child does not fit in, or is a 'square peg' so to speak, he or she will be miserable. There is no diversity at KHHS.

Keystone is one of the best schools in the state. If you want to feel secure and have a great time and get a great education then you need to go to this school! I absolutely love Keystone. They have a wonderful colorguard and band program. (I'm in colorguard so I know what I'm talking about!) The dress code could be a little fairer if they looked at the popular kids and the kids that play volleyball, softball, and the cheerleaders. For example. Also if you like sports and don't think that colorguard would not be as challenging, competitive, well it is. And yes it is a sport! But back to the school! The teachers make you feel important and safe. Their grading system, friendliness, and nature are all top notch! All this is coming from a colorguard member and a student! Go Keystone!

As a student moving from Colorado, my idea of school was greatly altered by coming here. Overall, the school is one of the best in the area, but simply can't compare to other schools. Teachers and administrators are lax with those whose parents they know or who play a certain sport, and can be less accommodating to others. However, through all this negative criticism, KHHS still remains better than most school in the area.

We moved here when my now-10th-grade son was a baby. We knew nothing of the schools and weren't really thinking about our baby's future education. I can honestly say that I am very happy we moved here. My two sons are now in 8th and 10th grade and they have gotten a solid education as well as a fantastic social experience. The teachers and administrators care -- and know -- about each individual student. I always feel that there are people watching out for the wellbeing of my sons. Sure, Keystone may not be as academically rigorous as some other schools, but I think students get a school experience that can't be matched in most other contexts.

This school is horrible! No one ever does their homework and the teachers dont seem to care. Overall i dont like this school

Not enough homework, no accountability... teachers expect the kids to write things in 'planners', so that all parents have to work with is what the kids write down. How can you, as a parent be SURE that your kids are doing all their assignments if it is up to the kids to write it down... that is like trusting the fox to guard the chickens... they will only write down what they want their parents to know. When we lived in Virginia, the teachers sent home guidelines, and there was homework, and books to read and bring home... our kids were honor roll students in Virginia because there was a way to keep up with what they were supposed to do and be interactive, now they just come homa and say 'I don't have any homework... almost every day!'

I was a student there for the year 2004-2005. I can tell you that it is a very clean school. It has mostly white kids. If you go 30 minutes away from Keystone, you will have a huge shock. Yes, there are other people of color in the world. Basically, they weed out all the 'bad' kids. If you mess up a little bit they ship you off to another school cal Bannerman. Scary stuff.
