    Overall Experience: I like this school, but there are things that keep me from loving it. Some teachers are very disrespectful to students, but expect respect from us. There are teachers that don't know how to discipline students and let them get away with whatever. Also there is no school spirit, we don't have any pep rallies because students don't know how to act their age. The faculty also thinks that the pep rallies take away from the education.

    Overall Experience: When I first came here, I didn't talk to anyone for three weeks. Everyone seemed to already have their group of friends. Boy was I wrong. In my time being here, I've realized that, yes, everyone has their specific group of friend that they hang out with the most, but it's not clique-y. It's not looked down if you hang out with other people, and diversity is celebrated here. That's what makes this school so unique.

    My favorite experience so far is probably going to states for HOSA competition. My team spent three days at Opry Land Resort to compete. Two of our members even placed and went to nationals, and it was awesome to see their success. The thing is though, none of us really hang out outside of our HOSA meetings. Besides health occupations, we had nothing in common, but those were three days that I hope I never forget. We celebrated and just had fun.

    I would choose this school all over again. I'm not zoned for this school, so I could easily go somewhere else. After the first semester, however, I knew belonged at Kenwood. I just feel more comfortable here.

    Overall Experience: Good School, students there to learn but sometimes can be rowdy. Teachers love to help students on all low and high points and most are willing to stay after school to help.
