    Overall Experience: I feel like I've been cheated of my education from all the time wasted in class. My teacher left the other day to go to the bank! When he got back we had 17 minutes left in class, then he answered his phone when trying to explain something to us. The counsellors are fantastic at their job if you can get past the watchdog. School spirit is dead. Died with whatever is making that horrible stinch in the history wing. The only skills learned at KHS are those of physical talents and trickery. The most funded organization at this school is football, and all the strict rules teach kids to be sneaky.

    Sports & Fitness: The main sport that has funding is football. The rest are forced to find funding their own way.

    Teachers: There are only two or three teachers that go beyond what they can to teach their students. Most just give worksheets and sit at there desk. There is also favoritism for students in drill team or football.
