This school has some good aspects such as being able to provide students with dual enrollment classes and AP Classes but the way I see it, the school is definitely getting worse. There are teachers who truly care about the students but the principal seems to find ways to make their hard work go unnoticed and instead pressures them and makes it seem as if they are in the wrong, causing the good teachers to leave. On the other hand, there are teachers who barely do anything and still get plenty of praise for it. The principal also tries to make it seem like students are doing better academically but that is surely not true. Some do deserve the grades they get because they work hard for them but others rarely go to school or do any work and they still receive the same grades.The teachers are also told that they can not fail students which just contributes into making it seem as if the students are doing better academically. Students also get suspended for the dumbest reasons and for a long time while others who do worse things get suspended for little or no time and are back at getting away with what they want. I see little hope for most of the students there if things do not change.
The workers in the front office are HORRIBLE. If a parent comes in, they will make you wait while ignoring you until they finish gossiping. Very unprofessional employees with the worst attitudes . They will suspend students for any reason and I 'm actually surprised they are still open. Gang territory . They will pass a child that never goes to school. Worst school ever ...
Kingbury High School administrative staff needs to be replaced with people who actually care about the students. Sending a child home because the staff didn't put the child in the system don't make any sense whats so ever.
I loved KMS when the principal was Mackin, he was a great man and great at his job. The teachers worked so hard for the kids and it was a very safe zone. However, at kingsbury high school it's HORRIBLE! The staff is so disrespectful and rude. I went up to the office one time picking something up and a staff lady named ms. Bosstick was ordering food and made me wait a hour. The principal is ok, but all he's good for us suspending people for no reason. The kids that are the worst at the school are treated better and don't recieve a big punishment. In the office they have 3 students every time just hanging out on the teachers desk skipping class, but if a straight A student did that they would literally suspend them for days. Also if you're a good student wearing pants that are 98% cotton, but they think it's jeans you will get suspended. They won't even tell you not to wear it again. No body really cares about your future at KHS. It's a horrible school and you're on your own. Their night be a couple if teachers helping you, but that's it. MCS should really fire all the administrators and hire new ones. This school really needs help!
I am a recent graduate of Kingsbury High School. I attended Kingsbury Middle as well as High School. The school has always been my favorite place to be. I was a great student, but that was not my reason for wanting to be there. Kingsbury offers it's students more than just a wonderful education. It offers a whole new world for students. Kingsbury's diverse atmosphere and programs makes every day worth going. The orchestra program was my favorite part. I was in it all 6 of my middle & high school years. They have the best orchestra teacher in Memphis City Schools. The school also offers piano and guitar; also taught by the same wonderful lady. Band is also offered, taught by another wonderful lady. The AJROTC program is nice. The only problem I ever had with the program was the lies they sometimes told. Overall Wonderful School!
