"The teachers at Kansas have always been good to me. They are helpful in class, out of class, and out of school if you know how to contact them. Many of the teachers are very laid back and enjoy a little bit ofclassroom freedom, but will not stand for any disrespect. There was one teacher, who retired this last school year, that was my favorite. He set out the rules, had an aura of authority, was intimidating, but also very nice..if you followed his rules. His rules were very simple, no gum, no talking unless permitted, no sleeping, no drawing on tables, bring textbook everyday even if we were only going to be in ther for five minutes, and no cell phones or electronic devices. Simple as they were, kids still tried to break them and he gave no flew in the rules. He required all students to follow accordingly and had no exceptions. He taught the students more that just history and world geography, he taught kids about respect, something students these days sorly needed to learn. We also have great English teachers, one in particular teaches English II and III and Speech and Drama. He also has been a sponsor for the Beta Club, and founded our school's Drama Club in 2015. His goal in every class is to have as much fun as possible, while learning to be college level writers. His teaching style works very well, his passing rate of EOI's has been over 90% for the past 8 years, over 97% the past 3. While he is laid back and wants the class to be fun, if things get too out of control, no one listens, and people don't do their work, there are dire consequences. He warns everyone on day one of the school year about "Apocalypse Week". Where, we still have our "Articles of the Week", a full page response to a topic he chooses that is at current controversy, and have to use whichever of his note taking methods we are on to describe 2 stories a day, and they're all due the next day. Though it is hard and a lot of work, afterwards it greatly improves our writing skills."
