    "All teachers are knowledgeable and have their different ways of teaching the class. Most of the teachers push their students to work their hardest and help the student in any way they can to improve their grade. However, there are a couple of teachers who do not interact with students well and they do not help students when students ask for it. Overall, the school spirit is great and teachers push the path towards college."

    "What makes this school unique is that they give the children freedom to express theirselves. When we have homecoming each year, we are allowed to decorate the hallways to a dfferent them. Also thoughout the art department, students get a chance to have their art work displayed throughout the school. These classes include photography, digital imaging, art survey, and studio drawing. I love that we can admire the different artworks that others have created and not just the ones we make. I also love the clay sculptures displayed on the outside of the school because I participated in creating them while I was in art survey my sophomore year."

    "My experience at Kenwood Academy was great. I transferred to Kenwood from a failing school during my sophomore year and it showed me a whole new look on high school. Kenwood had many clubs and activities unlike my previous school. Caring teachers and I made great friendships with my peers. Kenwood is just overall a great school."
