  • I believe KMHS is wronh in making junior & senior students do a senior project. This is causing students to drop out of school because they feel as if they cannot do projects that other students have parents that do theirs for them. It is costly and some students cannot afford it. The teacher is also very strict on making demands on them. No other school in Cleveland City. has this. Stop the nonsense, before we loose very good students.
