The communication w/ teachers & admin is absolutely ridiculous. I have emailed the principal over & over again re: issues & NEVER received an email in return. I have made appointments w/ the principal & sat there for over an hour waiting & she never showed up. The teachers do not update the PASS/Family Link program where parents are suppose to be able to check up on their kids progress. When I have emailed teachers re: this, I also get no response. In the 3 yrs that I have been dealing w/ this school, there are only 2 teachers that really have seemed to care about my child & return emails. 1 teacher reported bullying that she witnessed against my kid to admin & nothing was done. Teacher told me admin didn't care & her hands were tied. My kid has actually been bullied & made fun of by some of the teachers. I have seen teachers throw fits & objects when angry & nothing is done. They also messed up & didn't give my kid the correct courses 2 yrs in a row, now my child had to take summer school & does not get any electives and has 8 full classes to make up for their errors. They do not have it together. If I could give the school a 0 out of 5 I would.

Kuna High is a great school. Good AP programs and great staff. The German teacher is awesome. The Marching Band took first in the state, beating out much larger bands.

I graduated from Kuna High School fairly recently. I must say that while high school is not a good experience for everyone, Kuna does their best to welcome all students with open arms. The teacher's relationship to student is often a very strong one. I am attending a critically acclaimed university that is well known for its personal professors. Only in Kuna have I met its equal. The school does not always have much, but they make the best use of it possible. Very good school, recommended for parents who want their students to feel like they belong.

Kuna High School is the best. The teachers are always willing to help if you are willing to TRY. That is all they have ever asked for. I'm what most people my age would consider a "Teacher's Pet", I get along better with my teachers better than I ever have my peers. Kuna offers you teachers who care. Not all other high schools in this day and age can give you that. The athletics are good, and the academics are pretty much outstanding. I have spent two of the best years at Kuna, and I sorely wish I could've spent the last two there as well. I won't say that Kuna is perfect, cause it's not, but despite your usual teenage dramas, and the occasional fight (which are very few and far between) it is an overall wonderful school to attend.

I am not impressed with the contact with the teachers. I have to email them and then only a few respond.

I am a gradute of KHS (way back) and I now have one son who is a freshman and one daughter in 7th grade. I am not pleased with the lack of contact with teachers. I have, on many occations, requested regular contact, by email, from all my son's teachers and have yet to have even one of them contact me without being contacted first. I do not like the progress notes without some follow up. I want to know when my kids are not turning in assignments or are having trouble in specific areas as I've always emphasized to the teachers that his parents are there to help out. Paying extra, plus gate charges to sports is not acceptable either.

I currently have a child at this school and two that have graduated. I am not impressed with the fact that we now have to pay for sports because of the budget cuts. I am not impressed with the new way they are handling their tardy policy. The school is two levels and some kids have their lockers on the total opposite end of the school from their classes and can't always make it in the time needed. The educators are very good and have done well to educate my children. I do believe the school needs to take a higher stand with their moral values.

The new high school is a beautiful building and that seems to be more of a focus than the quality of teaching. Many of the teachers need to be more willing to keep in regular contact with the parents via e-mail for example. In the four years that my son has been there, only one teacher has kept regular contact with me on a weekly basis with a simple e-mail saying, 'all assignments are in' or 'these assignments are missing' or 'test coming up, chapter?' or 'project or paper due...' The teachers wait until report cards or progress reports (rarely seen by many parents) then whine about the student not doing his/her work. Also, very few interresting extracurricular classes of interest to students unless one is interrested in FFA.

I have 2 daughters that are juniors this year, they have been at Kuna High since 9th grade. The Kuna area has grown 30% since they started high school, the schools in the area have had to deal with increased students and the building of new schools to accomidate the community. A Kuna High School was built back in 2001-2002 summer and the new school is very impressive. I believe they are having issues regarding the amount of teachers retained and have also exceeded the budget granted them. This 2003 school year has shown that it will be costly to the students to participate in school activities as Kuna High's budget was cut and they took the money from the sports and after school programs. The dance team has been totally cut from the program. I hope that the donations and boosters are able to raise enough money to help this cause. The elective classes do not compare with the other High Schools in the area, and hopefully, since this is a new endevor with the added students and new scheduling, they will in the future find the funding and the need to be competitive with the other high schools. Kuna has alot of growing yet to do.. but it seems to be on its way..
