Kankakee Valley High School Reviews
I am currently a sophmore at Kankakee Valley High School. I have attended the KV school system my entire life, and have never had a problem here until i begun my highschool career. Almost all the teachers here are very unmotivated and I, normally not having problems, have struggled a bit trying to understand everything. I have found the staff very unhelpful. I also feel the school systems does not use their funds on wise things. They have raised the school lunches and lowered the quality. The disiplinary actions have deffinetely went up, but the caring and everything else beneficial has went down. Things are stolen on a daily basis. I know that the policy is, dont bring things you dont want to be taken, but how does it feel knowing that most of the people surrounding you are thieves that could potentially take things you own at any second. There is also a signifigant drug problem here. If I was a parent looking to send their children here I would think again. It is not a good environment and I hope you found my review of some help.
I am a sophmore at Kankakee Valley High School. Last year, I loved this school. Our principal, Mr. Apple, was very kind and always did his best to keep our school running smoothly and keeping everything under control. We had so many options for classes and extracharicular activities. This year, however, our school went down the drain. They are cutting our gym and art classes, as well as firing 33 teachers. The reason for this is our school ran out of money because they were building a new middle school. You have to have a gym and art credit to graduate. Next year's freshmen will not be able to graduate with the credits they will recieve by being in this school. If I were a parent, I would deffinately NOT enrole my children in this school.
