    "My brother had went to this school and he had a GREAT time! I could see, compared to his other school he had went to, he loved going to this school everyday, because the teachers would actually TEACH, the principle was nice and nice to everyone too, even me myself! He says he had lots of friends there and he had a PERFECT time, so I am writing this review for him. I have decided, all on my own that when I get out of middle school, I will go to this high school because my brother had went to this high school, and the teachers had taught him very well considering that now he goes to Harvard University. I am very amazed and impressed at this school, seeing how it has academics AND the arts and very good programs. I'm a big singer myself, I love singing, I am currently in this singing group at my current school, but Kinnelon seems so cool and I would really like to join the community! I hope they would let me sing also ^_^! Because I would be glad to attend every class, I can see myself from now and see my future self at Kinnelon."

    "The ONLY thing that drives decisions by the administration at Kinnelon is how they will fall in the NJ Monthly High School Ranking. The prinicipal and superintendent are puppets to the parents, many of whom treat the teachers like their personal servants or dirt under their fingernails. It is very common to see administrators screaming at each other or at teachers in full view of the students. The day after back-to school-night is like D-day at this school because of the hundreds of phone calls that come in complaining about this or that. It is also very common for parents to call the teachers names like "idiot" or "moron" if they do not concede to allow their offspring to retake a failed test. Teachers are seen more as a hurdle to getting the A's that the student needs on his transcript than as any sort of respected figure who imparts knowledge. They allow almost anyone into AP courses to boost their rankings, and the grades are severely inflated because of the absolute pressure coming in from the community. As a result, the teachers are stifled and henpecked. They are constantly on the defensive, rather than being encouraged to be creative in the classroom."

    "Kinnelon High School does a great job of encouraging ALL students to be involved in extracurricular activities. I rate KHS as top notch!"

    "I'm a KHS alumni. My experiences with the school ranged from stellar to abysmal; there was no standard level of educational quality and if you wanted to actually learn anything you needed to pick and choose your teachers - there are some very, very good educators working at KHS, but they are restricted by the dismal education of the students when they arrive. If you do not have an active drive as a student to be educated, you will be allowed to skate through this school on bare minimums without fuss."

    "The school district is outstanding as is the principle. Most of the teachers are great. If we didn't have tenure we could get rid of the ones that really don't relate well to the students."
