I started attending Keller High School at the beginning of my sophomore year in 2014. I'm a senior now. I honestly thought my experiences at KHS were going to get better with time, but they haven't. Recently, the school underwent construction for updating and remodeling. It's a beautiful school and I'm very impressed with the changes, but the atmosphere of the school created by the students and teachers makes being at school every day very uncomfortable and unsettling. Growing up, I switched schools often and I can say, I've never been to such a divided school before. The students tend to be excessively judgmental and they aren't very accepting at all of newcomers. Although it is my third year attending, it has still been extremely difficult to connect with other students and make new friends. It seems like the only way to connect with other students is to take part in the use of drugs. Over these past 3 years, I have noticed a rapid increase of drug use within the school. It's mostly popular among the younger students. With some groups of students, drugs will be all that they talk about. That's a major problem that needs to be addressed. Most of the teachers aren't very friendly either, but I think that's just a product of KHS being a very large school. I have to say that I'm glad to finally be graduating and leaving Keller High School this year.
The teachers at this school are very traditional, (not all, of course) but not in the way that may be seen as "good." Their methods of teaching are mostly lazy, handing out homework and only focusing on memorization instead of learning. The atmosphere for new students isn't welcoming at all either. Any events held only seem to be a boast-fest of students and teachers showing off why KHS is the best, and not in the way you may be thinking such as a sort of patriotism for the school, but rather just bragging. They don't mention how the education system can help the students reach the goals they're passionate about and how it can benefit them, but rather how it can benefit the school. In all, the school's education system isn't up to date, but the school's extracurricular activities seem to be doing well. (When I mention the teachers, I am talking about a select few I know and have experience with)
The attitudes of some of the students here come off as passive aggressive or aggressive in general, which doesn't seem to have a good effect on the freshmen as they look to the upperclassmen and may reflect the same attitude as them. I don't know enough about this topic however, and is only from personal experience.
