I have to agree with this student, I am parent and while my daughter was a student there, all I heard is that the principal was in a meeting, and unfortunately I never spoke to the principal, I only met him at the beginning of school year and then he disappeared?
My son has been a student at Killian the past two years. He loves it. Overall, I have found secondary teachers to be not as communicative as the elementary schools, but the online grade book enables parents to see their child's progress. I have heard of no locked doors, other than from the outside as it helps to keep out those who should not be entering the school. The academic program is challenging for my son who is in AP and Honors classes. As with most secondary schools, the parental involvment is not as strong as in elementary schools. The more involved one is with their child's education, the better the ducation the child will get.
killian is a great school with good curriculum and ethnic diversity. we have the best bands and sports teams.
Killian is a horrible school. Especially for children who have a learning disability. My child has been there for 2 years and the teachers make no effort to try and help. He slips thru the cracks as they say. No phone calls or alerts. Kids are being caught with drugs. No dicipline except for the stupidest things. My child had his IEP done and it has been a year. I have requested my papers which I have a right to and they still have yet to send them to me. The school is over crowded and lack education.
the school is like a prison with locked doors and so many security people. Lots of fighting in the hallways, especially among girls.
My son attended Killian. He was very happy there. I visited the school several times and spoke with teachers, counselors and administrators. They were all knowledgeable and pleasant. I think this is a great school!
For 2 years i have seen no problems with this school, is an old school but has good teachers. I drop off and pick up my kid everyday and I don't see any big problems other that what you see in all other high schools.
Killian is a joke. Security consists of black-and-white cameras, and security guards who poorly do their job. But, the teachers are great. Yes, there are some that put absolutely no effort into teaching, but you have those in every school. No principal involvement whatsoever (I didn't know what he looked like until a week ago).'Tis a sad experience to be enrolled in Killian.
Do not like this school because they have favoritism with the sports program.
