There are some amazing educators working at KHS! Years after I graduated it is so exciting to see them and reflect about the past few years.

Amount of homework: Agree

There were some days that I went home with a lot of homework, and some nights I did not have any. I never felt over burdened

I can say that my values were heavily influenced by the staff and clubs I was a part of.

I graduated a few years ago and loved my experience at KHS. The staff really helped me love learning, and went out of their way to help me when I needed it. They nurtured my interests, pushed me to succeed, and challenged me to be a better person. I almost went to private school instead of going to the Keene public school system, but I am glad that I attended and got the experience and education KHS has to offer.

I graduated a few years ago and I have to say that Keene High School fully prepared me for the rigors of college and provided me with important skills that have helped me at work. Even the teachers I was not fond of, or the classes that at the time I felt were useless have actually been very important in helping me through school and work. Although the administration can be a headache sometimes, the teachers, the diversity of courses and the community are wonderful!

Keene High School.. Not the best.. New Itime scheduale is wack... causing kids to stay in school longer which many students have sports affterwards..

I have had 4 children go through KHS. They were all top students and participated in sports and other extracurricular activities. There are some great science and math teachers at KHS.The government classes are weak and the English dept. is 50/50, depending on who you get. KHS is typical of many US schools in its moral and standards. You have to teach higher standards in the home but that is the most effective place anyway.

Keene High School is the epitome of what is wrong with the education system. Great teachers accompanied by a incapable administration, whose archaic methods of managing funds have resulted in the exponential degradation of KHS. As a resident of the Cheshire County area and also a senior at Keene High, I am quite frankly appalled at the wasteful spending that has occurred, particularly in regards to the network and computers. Basic computer literacy classes that require nothing more than a simple word processor have somehow come into possession of new computer systems that should be used for no less than INTENSE 3d- graphicdesign (not a program offered at KHS; these computers cost 1000-1300 a piece). Smartboards have been installed in class rooms in the hope of 'enhancing' the learning experience are being used as a simple white-projection surface. Why on earth would you install smartboards in classrooms that have no use for them other than providing a really white surface to display the images on? I could rant all day about the money that gets wasted here (new football bleachers/lights, motivational speakers that make Chris Farely look good, etc.) My apologies to the teachers.

The Keene High School students and teachers are doing such an excellent job! Every time they have students on the Granite State Challenge (a TV quiz competition for high-schoolers, I am so proud of these young people and the knowledge have absorbed. Since I am in my seventies, I am much in need of encouragement about those who will inherit this world. Keene High School students have made a difference already through their environmental work (which I know of first hand) and other projects about which I read in the newspaper. They give me courage.
