Anyone checking these reviews should take in to account two things; firstly, there are both positive and negative feedback given for the Kennett MIDDLE school! Completely irrelevant to the ratings given, with the additional fact that numerous children from other middle schools within the district will attend the high school as well. The second part is that the Kennett High School has been relocated to a completely NEW school built recently in 2007 rendering reviews such as the one mentioning poor ventilation to be a thing of the past. The new facilities of the HIGH SCHOOL (not middle) include an extensive security camera system of the hallways, cafeteria, and parking lot to help discourage bullying and if an act does happen to occur, this event can be recalled upon using the feed and proper reprimand can be given. There is also at least one police officer on site always. Overall, anyone complaining of academic issues should be held accountable for their own grades considering the Kennett Staff provides ample teaching, material, and out of class support to those who want to succeed. How you go about your high school career relies solely on how YOU wish to hold your own head.
If one looks atr the reviews they are mostly from students. I thought this was a parential review. One names a teacher . The school is lacking as test scores are dropping. The teachers state they are overwhelmed by their workload. They never get back to parents whom are concerned , even after promising to do so. Students are being railroaded from school into the courts. If a student skips class the courts are used to put a child on probation. In my day we recieved detention. I find labelling is extensive from JH thru HS. I am not happy with the Conway school and have raised Grandchildren whom attended Conway schools.
I attended the school prior to it moving to its current location in North Conway. I had a wonderful experience and I had great teachers and mentors, especially in the foreign languages and math departments.
I am a student at Kennett High and i love the school. The teachers challenge us. I love my teachers this year. They are very supportive and give you help when you need it. We are also number 1 in the state! There is very little i dont like about the school.
After being awarded the NH school of Excelence award (meanin our school is #1 in the state based on their criteria) I think we can safely say that kennett is a very good school.
I believe this school doesn't have the techniques it has to be a well educated school. The kids go there for a place to be safe and they should feel safe not threatened and bullied by other kids.
Kennett is a wonderful school with many motivated, caring and helpful teachers. With a new facility on the way, the respect and pride of the students and faculty has greatly improved over the last year. Opportunities outside of the classroom are abundant for those looking for activities. The teachers truly care about the students.
Kennett is very educational the teachers and Mr. Richards rules. I am an eigth grade student who has so far enjoyed her experience. I also can't wait to go to the new highschool when it's open
I enjoyed my experience at Kennett High School. While, it has its problems I think that overall it prepared my for college. I think that Kennett is a work in progress and that the brand new school will definitely raise moral amongst students, faculty and parents.
This School isn't a very good place to bring your children, which I am very sorry to say. Kennett has a terrible facility with a countless number of problems. Poor air quaility and a heating problem are just a couple of them. Along with that the teachers at this school are of low standards. Many of the teachers are coppurt for lack of a better word. They add points to tests for no reason. The grades you children may recieve are usually not an accurate reflection of them. The children at Kennett are a whole different story. There are some good students but I would guess that about 40% of students are 'Bad' students. There is an extreme number who use drugs as well. This school is not the place to bring your children. Do not be fooled.
