Every school has bad influences but as a freshmen in my first semester at Kickapoo high school I have discovered that they are far more than everyone says there are. A large portion of the student body curse like sailors at every opportunity and the teachers just sit there. If attending take all honors courses regardless of how hard it is to get into them because what I have found is that to get Physics First homework help I have Not been able to go to the teacher, but my friends in honors with Mr Hostetter have been very succesful due to the amount of help. NoNE of my teachers have been accommodating at all, I have a 504 due to my color blindness that has been blatantly ignored by several teachers. whom had been informed of it by me numerous times. Getting a schedule change had been impossible, I requested for one 3 weeks ago and have yet to hear back. This school sucks stay away
Kickapoo is a wonderful school if you have a bright child who excels in academics. If you're like me, a little slow, it's a nightmare. The teachers ignore you or huff at having to put any effort into you, like I was slowing down the class. The kids learn to hate slower students as well.
They do have vocational training, but they put so much emphasis on college for doctors and lawyers that many kids who would benefit from vocational school feel like they're less. I guess getting away from Kickapoo teachers for half of the day might save their mental health though.
Like I said, if you have a bright child Kickapoo is for you. If not, find somewhere else or take advantage of the vocational skills and tell those teachers they didn't earn their $25 per student, so they can huff off on glue or something.
Kickapoo is great i feel as if i am really going to be prepared for college. Kickapoo teachers are pretty great and really caring for the kids, any time i have a problem with something i have only ever had 2 teachers tell me that they cant help me. The administrative is great and there is not a lot of violence in my 3 years here so far i have only ever heard of 2 fights breaking out and drugs every school has them you just got to stay away from them. Kickapoo offers a lot for their students but it is very sport based and i dont care for that to much. But if you are looking for a school that will challenge your student Kickapoo is the place to be
Overall I feel this school is very good. Most of the instructors my two daughters have had have been very good. The counselors on the other hand are worthless, and seem more like over-glorified secretaries than counselors. Trying to get a schedule change is like pulling teeth. We had to contact the Superintendent of schools to actually get one of our daughters classes changed, and the Governor of Missouri and complain to get our other daughters class changed....ridiculous! Student ratio to teachers is horrible with up to 35 students per 1 instructor. Kickapoo is very sports minded, and these students receive special treatment. All schools has problems with drugs, however Kickapoo doesn't have a huge problem. The school police officers are very nice, and accessible. They have a hotline to report anonymously. Overall your child will get a decent education, however those who are struggling already are going to have a hard time due to overcrowding!
Kickapoo is not very good about following IEP my child slipped through the cracks and her IEP was ignored by nearly all her teachers, when she started to fall behind, they acted like it was all my problem when I turned them in for not following the plan, and they were spoken to about it, they were very bothered by us, but just gave her grades to move her on. I have never been treated so rudely with administration as we have been here, in Florida and Oklahoma they were exceptionally accommodating, and we flourished, her last few years here made it next to impossible for her to transition in Community College..I blame the poor administration at Kickapoo..I fought for her weekly till she graduated I was very involved.
