My school... Kent County High School. This school is the epidemy of social injustice, the grades are unfair, they do not grade on subject rather behavior, and they care about making a student pass to be on a high school sports team more than they try to help the student trying to go to Harvard.

We are having a great year. KCHS has a principal that is from Kent County and is a former graduate. There are new incentives being put in place to recognize the students who best represent the blue and gold. Students are happy. Teachers are happy.

Kent County High School is located in the smallest county in Maryland. Kent County High School has alot to offer and deserves to get the credit and attention it rarely gets. Home of the Trojans, KCHS has fabulous teachers and staff and even better students!!!!!!

I currently attend Kent County High School and have no problems with it. Yes we have racial issues and fights but what school doesnt have that. We all have great opportunities here and great expriences. There are some teachers that need to quit or retire.. Some that cross the line quite a bit but there isnt much you can do about them. Mr.Iseman and Mr. Shrec and Officer Hickman run this school and everyone loves them, I honestly hardly ever see the principal whos name is Mr. Keim.. Yay Class of 2012

I am a former studnet and recent grad of KCHS and think it is fair to say that the school has hit a low in the recent past, but is on the way up. A new administration has come in and has made significant improvments in recent years. The major problem, I think, is a lack of school spirt due to recent poor achievement. But this is improving. I think it is only fair to say that much of wht you get out of school wht you mke of it. There hve been some interesting incedents, but it you mind your own buisness, you will do well. In my four years, I had no problems whatsoever.

Kent County High School, like most other high schools in the country, is trying to regain control of the school.

The new and improved KCHS is a vast improvement from before. Mr. Silver and Mr. Schrecengost have worked together to build student moral, school pride and have tried to bring in parent involvement. Come to the school, participate in your students activities, during school and after (sports, meetings, open houses). Show your child your support their school and community. Mr. Pack is cleaning house and setting up a new system that will only enhance our children's learning environment. Kudo's go out to Pack and Silver for showing what true commitment is.

Kent County High School is on the rebound, but has a long, long way to go to be competitive. Drugs and alcohol are a problem as well as teacher apathy. The school is not solely to blame, parents turn a blind eye to underage drinking. Fights occur every day in the school. Racial problems exist -- although no one talks about the problem. In my estimation, it will take ten years to turn this school around. A deep commitment is needed from the County Administrators, School Administrators, Teachers, Parents -- and most importantly, the students to succeed.

I have just graduated from Kent County High School, and as a student who was constantly involved with SGA, PTSA, and extracurricular activities I feel I can offer an honest account of the school. The first three years I was there (Aug03 - June06) our principal and our superintendent were inefficient leaders. Last year, however (Aug06 - June07) we got a new principal and a new superintendent. Both are enthusiastic about our students and receptive to parents' concerns. They have done a lot to encourage school spirit and improve the behavior of all students through fair and consistent disciplinary practices. Thanks to them the school is becoming a much better environment for learning and an all-around better place to be. There are still some significant problems but Mr.Silver and Mr.Pack are taking steps to fix them as I type this. I am confident that KCHS will soon be a great school.

Wow, the previous reviews were very harsh. The school is on the rise, so fear not. We just received a new principle and superintendent so things are getting better, much better. The new principle came from an Elementary school, so everyone thought he was going to get overwhelmed, but he is doing an incredible job. The school is running much more efficiently now that our old principle is gone. It also got renovated, a new gym and cafeteria, new ceilings, central air, new plumbing, new windows, and several other stuff that I don't know about. The school is much more safe and the disciplinary actions are harsh now so many people are treading lightly. Every school has their ups and downs and last year KCHS was Down. But now its coming back up

Administration does not support exracuricular activities. School is geered to much towards college bound students and not enough for vocational opportunities for those who will not be going to college. Poor leadership from principal.

There are a few teachers at KCHS who really do care about our students but the learning enviroment is jeopardized every day by the lack of support from administrators. We need to a clean sweep of administrators in Kent County, with the exception of Mr. Hudock who actually seems to care about the students and has respect of the ones involved with. Extra-curricular activities are constantly in jeopardy. Daily annoucements about 'rasicm' are what keep the fires burning, are we in Birmingham or what?

The good things: An 'attempt' to bring up school academics and parents becoming increasingly involved in the school. The Staff: Among the many weeds taking up space (while getting big paychecks, ((we have 1 principal and 5 assistant principals for only 800 students)) there are a few true flowers trying to survive in a restrictive environment. Unfortunately those teachers that are trying to help our students are burdened with extra work, harsh leadership and low morale. Safety: There are over 800 students in this high school. (Just like the politicians all promises and no follow-up.) I wonder where our tax dollars would go if we had the choice between public or private schools. I know what I would choose. New leadership would help.

Kent High seems great on the outside but ont the inside, the place is a mess. The teachers have no control and spend half of the class period 'trying' to maintain order and the other half teaching. All the former students at Kent High said the education recieved will not prepare one for college. 80 percent of the books are very outdated and falling apart. But other then the pest problem, rediculously strick and incomprehendable administration, and cheap supplies, its a 'fair' school. But with negatives comes positives, Kent does have an excellent Field Hockey and Wrestling program. The two teams went undefeated this year.

Moved to Kent County about 4 yrs ago, I heard how great the Kent County High School was. Never believe what you hear. I was better off where I was. The one thing I have to give Kent County High School credit for and I cant take that away is they are great at covering up what they dont what the public to know.

I graduated from this school last fall, and I don't think I am alone when I say that I was greatly let down by not only the education I recieved there but also when I consider the quality of the memories I took away with me.
