Kenwood Academy High School Reviews

By on

I think Kenwood Academy High School is a really good school.  But, the location makes it hard for the young children who attends.  It makes it hard for them to concentrate, because, they are focused on getting out of school/or skipping to hang out in the neighborhood.  If parents/community members instill in children that hanging out in the streets around Kenwood is not healthy for their future and check often to make sure they are following thru with focusing on school related issues only.  Overall, I think a child can go to Kenwood and  become very successful in life it they are focused.  My own daughter will be attending Kenwood this fall and I am eagered to help her make Kenwood one of the best schools in Chicago.  Parents/teacher involvement is the key to success in any school.  So parents please become active in your child's high school career.

Kenwood is the best high school I know of, there are several reasons why Kenwood Academy is the best.  First, the principal Ms. Kirby is very active in her school, she believes in success and helping those in need.  Second, the administration overall is very helpful and they do they best to assist those in need.  Third, the classes and the teachers are very challenging, which is outstanding.

My Famous quote is "Failure is not an option, unless you concur to it"
