The teachers at this school aren't bad. However, a pretty hue majority of the students are. There is way too much fighting, swearing, skimpy clothing, drugs, and sexual activity. The "popular" kids are obviously favored. There was even a fight once because one girl said "fix your eyebrows". The dress code is also confusing. One girl could walk around with her butt hanging out of her shorts and nobody does anything. But if another student walks around wearing a hat or a hood they get sent to the office because it's "gang related". As a student at this high school I feel If you want your child to have a healthy social life and experience at school, I recommend sending them elsewhere.

They go above and beyond to assist the kids in every area of academics and athletics. All staff members are fully committed to the kids in their school.

There's nothing wrong with the teachers at Kearsley. If it seems they're indifferent, it's probably because they're burned out and tired of dealing with students that just don't care anymore (seemingly the majority of students when I went through). If a student doesn't WANT to learn, the best teacher in the world cannot change that. I've witnessed teachers at the school genuinely get excited when curious, willing students sit in their classrooms. It makes a difference. I was not the most successful socially, but was never the victim of a teacher's favoritism for an athlete, nor did I witness any. Popular students weren't mean to me either. I respected them, and they me. Budget issues have plagued the school lately and as a result, the Arts program has taken a big hit. This is unfortunate, but understandable. The department just doesn't bring in as much money as say... athletics.

As a student of Kearsley, I feel that the education is undermined and low on the needs scale. Athletics and 'popular' students are given moire rights and almost no responsibilities. Where as the 'outcasts' are left to pick up the slack of those that are given a break due to late practices or late games. The students are rude, discriminative, and just plain out immature. There are over the necessary amount of swearing, fighting, skimpy clothing, and bulling. As a student at the 'beloved' KHS, i recommend not sending your child here if you want them to have a true education.
