Every high school has issues with drugs and bullying. Schools can try and shelter their students from it all they want but it's gonna happen. That being said, Kilbourne's drug problem really isn't that bad! The education is decent, it's slipped over the years but retains an excellence rating and is one of the top 1000 high schools in the country. Nonetheless, as a student i feel unchallenged here. I do not mean to sound conceited, but I just don't feel as though i'm being pushed very far in the classroom. Also, our course selection is somewhat barebones. We offer three languages (2.5, we cut half the french program), and do not offer more ap courses such as world history, comparative government, physics c, psychology, etc. I would like to see that change, but alas, it probably won't happen. As far as school spirit is concerned, i do feel that kilbourne students, at times, want to be students elsewhere. They want to be westerville north, they want to be dublin jerome, hilliard davidson, etc., and aren't always proud of the K. At other times (football games + lax season), however, i've never seen a more rowdy student section :D.
