Kennett High School5

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 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.
