    "Kirkwood is very diverse. Kids are okay with telling other kids there transgender or gay. Being when you are is ok no matter the color or religion. Honestly its a pretty relaxed environment in the aspect. There are of course peer pressures like drinking or smoking weed. But the kid makes that final choice to do it or not."

    "My overall experience has been very nice. The teachers that I have had are well educated and seem to have an understanding when things are to much. The school sponsored activities are well put together. My personal favorite is the football games and the after school pep rally's."

    "The academics at Kirkwood can be challenging but the student is the one who picks the challenging course. They offer the option of honors, AP, or regular. If some are not at the regular level then there are classes that suit there needs. The scheduling is a little weird, we have all class Monday, Tuesday and Friday; then we have block days on Wednesday and Thursday. So the homework load is a challenge but manageable."

    "The main thing I wish Kirkwood teachers/staff were more supportive. For me specifically regarding academics because of a few circumstances I had. In high school I did have to give a hundred percent in non advanced classes, and I wish teachers would have encouraged me to try advanced classes. My sophomore I was talking with my counselor about my Plan (practice ACT) test scores. My test score was a sixteen, and my counselor said based on the scores my highest score I will get on the ACT is an eighteen. Looking back I wish I had not listened to my counselor, and worked hard to prove her wrong. Then as a junior when it came time to create new schedules for the following school year another teacher was not very supportive when I asked him to sign off on my class choice. I decided I wanted to try Advanced Placement Psychlogy because I had heard good things about the class. When I went to talk to my teacher I went in very proud of my self that I wanted to attempt a college credit class. When I sat down with my teacher I did not get the supportive reaction I was hoping for. He said "I don't think you can handle AP Psychology. How about Sociology or Modern Amarican History?" I was crushed because I was hoping to challenge myself academically. However, looking back this made me a stronger student and person because of this experience. I learned that people are it always going to be supportive, and you just need to find people who will support you. But the most important thing is I need to support myself by saying "I am capable of doing this." "I believe in myself." Learning to believe in myself has made me more confident, and allows me to take risks in life."
