  • The school is in need of a face lift. What happened to Ken ton it used to rate with Williamsville and Amherst!!! I don't know the answer but I do think that some major changes need to happen.

  • When I went to this school way back when, I know life was good and very different. We did not have such worries as there are today, and for that I feel really bad that this has to be such a burden on the teaching of our students now. However that should be even MORE reason to brighten up the inside and outside of the school itself. I have gone to every activity that our grandchild has ever had, and I must say how drab the inside of this school is. No color, no pictures, no paintings and no laughter. I overheard some parents from other schools (that were there to watch a volleyball game) say "How boring and dull this school is." I felt really bad not only that I used to go here, but that our grandchild was here. I have seen the cracks in the walls, the dull looking halls and most of all the sad and not motivated kids that come out of there day after day. The administrators really need to stop talking down to the kids as if they were 5 and 6 years old but show them that they matter and they mean something to that school. We also just got done seeing the so called "stepping up day" for the eighth graders, how sad was that. ALL of them should have gone across the stage and have their name called, after all they are STEPPING UP AND OUT. Again nothing special was done, and what was that, the kids had to pay for the pizza and drink. The PTA should have stepped up and paid after all we do pay very high school taxes and everyone there is paid VERY well. As far as the ranking of the Ken-Ton schools we should be very, very upset and we are. Start looking at the big picture and that is the student body, because as a whole they ARE good people and should be told more often and not group them all in the same package with the few who cause trouble. Lets have MORE parent nights at school with an open talk about how ALL things can be better, after all every year more great minds are coming. Have the parents sign in so the school can keep track of the parents that are really doing their job. Have so many meetings mandatory, therefore when trouble arises it can be pointed out that these parents did not make the effort that they should have and therefore really are going to be accountable for their child. Maybe a new beginning should happen, starting with uniforms, and the teachers taking pride in what they wear also. I know there is hope for this school and all schools in Kenmore-Ton, its all about going back to the basics and respect for one another. It will be hard at first but all good things take time, but stick with it and make parents accountable as I was and my parents were before me. Thank you for your time, and thank you on behalf of our grandchild who is STEPPING UP!
