Kecoughtan High School 5

I am a KHS alumni at a top-tier university. Kecoughtan has a rigorous, large AP program that helps students prepare for college classes. Many of the AP students are accepted to top-tier schools, like Virginia Tech Engineering, William and Mary, and UVA. Calculus at KHS gets perhaps the highest marks in the Peninsula with their teaching, especially in BC. I know that AP Psych consistently gets 5's for many of their students. This is the best high school in Hampton and students across the city go here to take our AP classes since we offer so many.

So disappointed. Seems this school is getting by on 'reputation'. I'm not impressed with the academic standards, student behavior, parent involvement or administration. Best choice...move out of the city.

I think everyone should know that this High School has some really good math teachers. They are just like any other High School with issues. I would not recommend this school unleass you are from this area, students are not treated fairly.

Best High School in Hampton, VA. Great all around - teachers, sports, academics, preparing for college, and the list goes on and on.

After 14 years of teaching in another district, I decided I needed a change or might leave teaching all together. I joined on at Kecoughtan 4 years ago and felt like I died and went to heaven. The students tend to work hard and are well disciplined. The staff and administration works very hard to maintain a positive learning environment. I would send my children to KHS on ay given day!

Having worked in all of the HCS high schools I can say without any reluctance that Kecoughtan is by far the better of all. Its management, programs, skill levels, teachers, staff, adminstation is far superior. This is a known fact. The children are safe at KHS.
