this school is horrible left and right there are people doing drugs and smoking in the bathrooms or skipping class or fighting the teachers and officers there don't care in fact most of the security guards there are friends and joke with the kids who are skipping... most of the teachers are the ones who give you a worksheet and tell you to do it with no explanation as if they were just there to watch us work and then get paid. This high school spends their money on security that doesn't do what they are supposed to and on stuff that the other students just play on like the laptops... BIG mistake over half of the students use the laptops for things other than school work like walking down the halls (skipping) n blasting their music disrupting everyone who wants to learn and again nobody does anything about it. Honestly the only good thing about KHS is the career center.
The best the teachers are there for the kids and if they need help parents get involved in the school
Kokomo high school is overall a very good school with the career center and other extra programs they have.
This is a great school, great classes, great teachers, and just overall great school. There is plenty of police officers at this school contrary to what some are saying. This is also a great school if you don't want to get up early. The night school they have is terrific, and can help you graduate faster if that is right for you.
Great school, teachers, different varieties of things to take, and probably one of the best schools in the state, if not the country!
This is a great school. Absolutley love the new night school they offer for those that aren't morning birds.
My son is receiving an excellent education at Kokomo High School. Half of his day is spent in Advanced Placement courses and half in general education classes. He has had a number of outstanding teachers in AP, Honors, and GenEd classes who hold high expectations for their students. They have held him accountable for his own learning, and several have taken the time to contact me when he has not completed assignments, so we can work as a team to push him to achieve to his potential. While my son has been subject to occasional bullying tactics by a few students, the one time he ever felt concerned enough to notify a principal, administrators very quickly and effectively stopped the problem. Discipline has improved significantly this year, and he feels very safe at school. Kokomo High School has been a great choice to prepare my son for college, and I deeply appreciate the efforts of its administrators, teachers, counselors, and staff.
This year (2010-2011) the administrators have really improved things. They have just gotten a new tardy system that has students hurrying to class, trying not to be late. The fight numbers have decrease significantly! There is a lot more security here now too. The only bad thing is some kids really don't want to be there, and this ruins the high school experience for several students. The teachers here are really friendly and cool. I think they are easy to get along with and like to have fun as well. The athletics have really taken a step foward. Overall I think this is a good school with some minor problems, but the improvements made were very successful!
This school has great AP programs. Last years class received over 4 million dollars in scholarships with students attending Harvard, Notre Dame, Yale, and Princeton. The school also has a very rich athletic tradition with many students receiving scholarships in many sports.
In my opinion (and as a student), I find the school an okay academic environment but the students who are forced to be there are the ones who make KHS a terrible place. There's always fights and there are no writing classes or even clubs. I know many of my friends who would gladly take a class for creative writing (or join a club).
As a student enrolled in 'Honors' classes at Kokomo High, I was very disapointed. The classes were bogged down with kids who didn't belong there, and consequently, not challenging enough for those who did. Also, I did not feel safe in a school that was overcrowded with rowdy, lawless kids who didn't take the school, or the authority seriously. I did not find many teachers who were willing to put in the effort to teach a gifted class. Overall, Kokomo High school is not a good environment to foster educational and social growth, when kids are treated like a student ID number, rather than an actual person.
Too much violence. The school needs more police protection. Recently kids are being attacked from behind and if try to defend themselves they are expelled.
I think Kokomo High school is by far the worst high school in the state of indiana.
I have moved away from Kokomo but my son was in kokomo high School I Love that school for the children it is one of the best schools that I know. even better than the Wi schools
KHS offers a wide variety of class choices and extracurricular activities. Good teachers are necessary to support a student's educational goals--I have had four teachers, after 48 classes, who have far exceeded my expectations of any teacher. KHS has a lot of students but not enough amazingly good teachers. However, the school is kept in top-shape and is an enjoyable environment. Because of KHS's good security, I know I am safe whenever I enter the school. All in all, KHS is an 8.5 on a 10 point scale.
This school provided a high quality education for me. I never felt like I could have gone to a 'better school.' This school lacks nothing, and exceeds most parents' expectations for any school, especially a public school. There are plenty of extracurricular activities, support for student athletes, and positive feedback is always ample!
I'm not a parent but I was a student and contrary to the statistics I turned out very well. It isnt about how well the school teaches, it is how well the student wants to accept it. If you want to learn, you will. It provided a facility that allowed ample guidance and support for me. I had no fear or threat on any drug issue either. I feel it was a safe and controlled environment.
The only thing Kokomo High School has goin for them is their extracirricular activities.
