BASIC

Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

Having went to over half a dozen different schools before graduating, I think I have something to offer here. Don't get me wrong. I really liked this school. Some of the nicest kids I knew growing up went here. But, with that said, I also have to call a spade a spade. Some of the meanest kids I grew up around also went here. I simply cannot look past the 5 years where I was bullied by over 20 different people - nearly all of of whom went to this school. On and off school property, mostly off, these bullies inflicted pain upon me which nobody should ever have to endure. Not just verbal "picking", which was a daily thing. If you dared to stand up for yourself, you were made an example of. You were ganged up on or beaten quite viciously. Yes, I've been beaten to the point of being bloody and had broken bones. Oddly enough, some of these same people are teachers now. Pennsylvania is way behind the times compared to other states when it comes to bullying. KJHS is a perfect example of this. The policies are vague, general and watered down. They are mocked, and it shows because nobody takes them seriously. Once I started going to school in other states, my life improved tenfold.

KAMS is a small town school with big city troubles and the kids have no help from the over sized classes and staff very much. The staff put things under the rug or leave the kids to deal with things on there own.

Too many students per teacher, teachers do nothing about sexual harrassment. Children are expected to be solicitors to gain finances for computers, field trips, and such. Children's needs at this school are not being met.
