High School Senior

On Health & Safety: No bullying and there are many security guards and there is even a health club. And somehow we still don't even have a school nurse.

High School Senior

On Resources & Facilities: The building is kept in good shape (but they don't use their money for the important things). We make use of technology with smart boards and some computers. However there is no library anymore and it is constantly closed because there is no longer a librarian which is desperately needed.

High School Senior

On Teachers: In Killian there isn't much middle ground for teachers. They either don't know much or they are fantastic teachers.

High School Senior

On Student Culture & Diversity: There are the typical social groups but people usually belong to more than one. Theres average student involvement and no one is picked on because of their race or sexual orientation. People usually keep to them selves and try not to offend anyone.

High School Senior

On Food: Basic cafeteria food, theres a salad bar in one cafeteria and outside food is sold in the other. Mostly there's pizza and sushi but you probably don't want to eat their sushi. Not many options and you are not allowed to leave campus for lunch (or for anything really).
