    Food: While there is wonderful snack line full of unhealthy, greasy food, there is practically no healthy food provided for at Kenwood with the exception of a very small salad line with minimal choices. The Kenwood cafeteria has four lines to provide for a large student body, the snack line, the regular menu line, and the pizza line. The pizza provided for in the pizza line is overly greasy and undercooked at times. The regular line does serve a variety of foods, but the food is not very healthy. Even though fruits are provided every day, most students through them away or do not get them. Furthermore, none of the lines are convenient for those students with allergies or those students who eat gluten-free, Halal, Kosher, or Vegan foods.

    Sports & Fitness: While sports such as swimming and lacrosse are not available at Kenwood, the basic, traditional sports such as baseball, basketball, soccer, football, and tennis are provided for at Kenwood High School. In order to boost morale amongst the student body and staff, Kenwood hosts numerous pep rallies throughout the year with intriguing activities such as a basketball game between teachers and students. Furthermore, every Friday, Kenwood's sports news and clips of games are displayed on KNN, a school-based show produced by students. With these resources provided for, the majority of students at Kenwood are actively in sports or actively supporting their fellow classmates.

    Resources & Facilities: While my school and teachers utilize general computer labs, online resources, and presentation tools, my school and teachers do not have access to distance learning or online courses. Even though virtual schooling is available at my school, only certain students are allowed to be in the program.

    Academics: While I occasionally encounter a teacher who does not seem as knowledgeable in the given subject or tends to teach off topic, overall, my school's teachers are proficient. The strict policy for teachers such as lesson plans force the teachers to strictly adhere to the state curriculum in some form or fashion. Acknowledging the fact that most students are busy after school with extra curricular activities, the teachers are generous with the workload outside of school. Also, caring about the proficiency of the students, my school has established a study hall period in order for students to get tutoring or do homework.
