I'm a student of Kenwood and despite what the media says, Kenwood is an amazing school. If you feel the need to judge the school, take a walk though it. See the loving people. Everyone is a family. Kenwood has great teachers and they really help you if you have a problem or even need something. The school is just great it's self. The STEM academy is great because it gives you a chance to fulfill what you want to so one day with hands on stuff, and critical thinking skills. I may only have been here one year cause I'm a sophomore but I'm having a great time at this school. It's a great school and I wouldn't change a think about it. :)

This school is awful and I am concerned about my child being able to get the knowledge she needs for college!! The teachers have such disruptive students that they don't have time to teach cause they are disrupted all the time. Something needs to be done about the numerous amounts of miss behaved students.

My son went to kindergarten here last year and it was not parent friendly at all. Parents are not allowed in the classrroom. We can only go to the caferteria to see our children. My son was having son dislpine problems but all I was ever told was that it was normal and never allowed to see what was happening in the classroom. As for the office staff they are unhelpful and often rude. I emailed the principle several time, and she responded back back but never told other in the office that I was coming in so when I arrived she was out of the office and no one knew about my situation to help out.

I am in the STEM Academy at Kenwood High. The teachers there are amazing. They answer all your questions and are open for discussion. I am proud of my school. I have and older brother and sister who graduated quite some time ago, but they only said that it was a good school. The principal is really nice, and is fun to talk to. Despite what all the media says about Kenwood, we actually have some of the top scores in our county. Several of our academic teams have competed and placed high at the national level. I love this school and hope you will too!

My daughter goes to this school and I think they could be so much better but no one cares. The kids and parents are apathetic and some of the staff couldn't care less. I rarely see a parent. There are some very good teachers and some decent teachers and some not so much. Unfortunately, it seems like the good ones are always leaving almost as soon as they get here.

I love Kenwood because of the diversity we have within the school. Regardless of all the bad stuff the media has to say I think it's a great school and I'm VERY proud to go there and I'm going to be proud of being a khs graduate in May!

I went to Kenwood and I thought is was a great school. I went to other states in the USA like VA MA AL and I looked at the schools. They were not that good at all so I am glad that I was a graduate from Kenwood High.

People have so many wrong things to say about Kenwood, but don't judge without first hand experience. Kenwood, to me, is one of the best schools in its district. I have attended NWHS,CHS,RHS, and Kenwood.

I'd like to say that kenwood is an ideal schoolastic environment, but that would be a severe oversight on my part. True, though, as it may be, that Kenwood needs to make changes it also has a very different 'feel' than most of the other CMCSS schools. Some of the staff is a little bothersome and may be a little out of sorts. But where will you find a placethat doesn't have a few of them. I must say that I have been met with nothing but love and great care by my teachers. They'll go out on a limb for you, they'll push you, they'll get you to push yourself. I have never met more wonderful adults in my life. The school itself is diverse and blended and the tension experienced in other schools due to economy is virtually absent. KHS is like home; warm and protective.

I am a student at Kenwood High School and I was reading this and I was appauled at some of you all have to say. For one, the principals are everywhere. We have 4 principals, atleast one of them comes to every game, they walk around in lunch, and come into classes to observe. I personally love KHS it has got to be one of the greatest schools. It is very diverse and accepting.The teachers are great and very understanding and are there to really help us.

I taught at KHS for several years and moved to another city when I realized I wouldn't want my own kids there. There were many teachers there for whom I have great respect. There was little parent involvement. There were many activities for students, but students are mostly apathetic. KHS maintains strong wrestling, track and field, and cross-country teams, and has an uprising football team. There is a variety of academic programs available, and the technology is favorable. Other than the last 2, my years there were positive. Bottom line, the community isn't a good one to raise kids.

Hi! I'm Angelica Fuentes and I am a graduate of Kenwood High school. I came to Kenwood my Sophomore year from a private school and I have to admit it was completely different and I was a bit scared at first, but the environment, faculty, and students made me feel welcomed. I am currently in the Air Force and attending college and I feel Kenwood prepared me as much as they could have to be successful in life. I loved Kenwood and don't regret any of the time I spent there. I think you have to have the mindset to get the most out of things in order to be successful. Angelica Fuentes

Without athletics, and other extracurricular activities, Kenwood is nothing. Everything is taught in test format, and is not taught to be retained. Parent involvement did not exist this year. If your are looking to go to college for track, choose Kenwood. If your looking to go to Harvard...

As a former student of two years at Kenwood High, I have to say that in whole, the school left a lot to be desired, but compared to others in Montgomery County, it could have been a lot worse. The teachers and principals seemed a lot more concerned with the dress code than with teaching, and as a student who spent my whole life in the Houston, TX school district, I came here and was learning adverbs in advanced 11th grade english, which I learned in Houston in grade five. They definitely have a long way to go.

My name is Amanda Flarida and i'd just like to say I LOVE KHS! i attended Kenwood my freshman,sophmore, and junior years.The end of my junior yr. was rolling around and i was beginning to be so excited for my senior year until my step-dad was deployed to Ga.Now im in a total diff. curriculum,facing tons of new/weird things. If i could go back to KHS i most def. would :)As much as i miss my old friends i miss the faculty aswell.My mom says she wishes i could be back there because we feel there at KHS more of the teachers are focused on helping students rather than just pushing them on their own way.

The previous comment that said, 'you barely see the principal' obviously has not been inside Kenwood. The principal is everywhere. I am writing to comment on the teachers. They are fabulous! Tough, but very helpful. Some parents do not like for their child to have accountability, but I am all for my child being held accountable. It teaches them responsibility. I fully trust the staff at Kenwood because I know they have my child's best interest at heart. I am very happy with Kenwood. I would like to add that overall, parents are not involved. That is too sad. With the lack of parental support the school does 'magic'. Thank you Kenwood!

Thank God, we are finally at the end of another school year. I was looking forward to my daughter entering her first year of high school, but things have changed a lot since my school days. What a disappointment Kenwood High was for both of us. I tried after the first six weeks to get her to transfer to Northwest, but because of a boyfriend, the thought brought her to tears. Therefore, the school year was full of complaints from her about teachers and counselors. I met with some of those teachers and her couselor and found out her complaints were very justified. Kenwood High staff needs either an overhall or major attitude adjustment.

Academic emphasis and success is promoted. This school's facilities are beautiful. An ideal place to have extra-curriculars. At the same time it is located close to Fort Campbell and the city of Clarksville. Kenwood Highschool caters to a diverse population.

This is a wonderful school and an even wonderful environment to have your child in. The only semi bad thing about Kenwood is that you barely see the principal. Some students will do a lot better by wanting to be like his/her principal. There are many kids who dont know what he/she looks like. Maybe if the principal would come to games and meets and poke their head in at times during class. That might be something you would wnat to look into next year. Thank you for your time and support. Good Luck in the near future, Pamela Nicholson
