Horrible. My mental and physical health declined the entire time I was here and I had to watch amazing teachers get layoffs due to budget cuts.

I think the rigor and quality of instruction has really slid in the last 5 years. I believe it's content to ride on its reputation, and it embraces every new trend in education, whether proven to be a good thing for the students or not. Parents have no voice. Specific examples are their change to a reassessment policy that parents fought and lost and their recent switch to block scheduling, which parents fought and lost again. We moved our child after freshman year because there was no challenge in the academics and the 4x4 block schedule was coming, which has many cons.

KMHS is a wonderful school. Very engaged parents, teachers and administration. Very strong academics. We have been very happy.

They have a grading system where you don't have to do any homework (it's not graded) and on the 'benchmarks' aka tests, final papers & projects where you can get a majority of the questions wrong yet still get an A. I find it extremely difficult to receive even a C, it is next to impossible. A C is like an F in any other school. They changed to this grading system in 2010-2011 school year, and I have to say people in the school don't even try and they get B's! I took a biology test one time and got half the questions wrong on the scantron, but still managed to get a 5 (a+). LOL. Oh and they use the round up system too. If you want to get a scholarship (this school is floating on past rep) or just graduate doing next to nothing for work, join this school. If you want to actually learn something go to another one, like arrowhead or something lol. Oh, BTW, 3 sem gym required, 4 years of english, 2 of math, biology is required, etc. You can only take one year of study hall a year, they don't let you have any more even if you have excess credits. Non-open campus and lunches are decent and cost around 4 dollars for a meal. Cool people for the most part, but some bullies.
