No matter what you hear from others, I love this school. The teachers care about the students education and they are so engaging! The bullying has gotten down, and we were rated a 4 star school by the state, the best there is! There is an anonymous tip line for reporting bad behavior, but the other students do not realize that is an option. they have some many clubs and activities. the band is awesome so is their sports teams. I LOVE THIS SCHOOL!

A school with an "anti" bullying campaign doesn't take a hard look at the staff members and see who the bully really is. After having many issues with a particular teacher, I was sent to the main principal, after 3 weeks of waiting. The principal over looked all the other students complaints and mine, and even had the nerve to defend the teacher. Also the principal is old, tired, and needs to be replaced like many of the other things at KV High School. It's also not just the bullying in the school, but chewing tobacco is a major issue and is commonly used in the school. From a student to a parent, please steer your children away from this school if you want them to get a good education.

My daughter graduated from KVHS and was very well prepared for college. She earned college credit from the AP classes that she took. She was also very involved in academic teams, drama and music. All of these program were superior. The teaching staff is well above average.

I have one son that graduated & two other sons still attending. I LOVE this school & the school system. They have a lot to offer to gifted children. We moved here based on the schools. Our sons will graduate with their welding certificates & many college credits. Friends of ours children have graduated with their daughters working as CNA's & have gone right into construction positions with the skills that they learned here. If you have any kind of a problem & take it to the office, it is dealt with swiftly & appropriately. Theft & drugs? My sons cell was stolen 2 years ago. He knew exactly who he thought took it from his gym locker. I left the phone on & the next day I met with the principal. I also called in the police & they pulled the people with whom received calls from my sons phone that night. They told the police who called them & after retrieving that young man from class he turned over the phone & his parents were contacted & we were given the phone back. Only incident we have ever had. Drugs? Well they are every where. We have never had a problem. But we raised our children right. I honestly have never heard of any drug incidents here. LOVE KVHS!!!

This school is terrible! The superintendent has spent all our money on construction on a new school, and sports and now our high school is close to be an uncredited school!

This school does not put education at the top of priority. It instead invests heavily into its sports programs instead of paying for programs such as summer school. Although, this is a friendly school, considering the student body as well as the staff. But while trying to advance, many mistakes and misunderstandings occur. That is mainly due to miscommunications on the staffs part. A good example would be the notorious I.D. requirement. Students are required to wear their I.Ds all through the day, everyday. However, students may only have 2 days of a year without their ID. The third time they recieve an afterschool detention. This was actually not the rule the first semester, and confusion and chaos occured. Most staff and students are misinformed. The school is clean, but old. Many classrooms have missing ceiling tiles as well as chunks from the walls missing where pipes were repaired.

This Schools math department is not the best. My son is an algebra 1 student and is doing third grade math. They need to give them more challenging work.
