I have two children in this school and have found it to be a school of high character. It is a safe place for young people. They have regular drug searches by drug dogs and random drug testing to help keep the school drug free. The faculty and staff are more than willing to help anyone that wants to advance in any area . It is a small school and in my opinion very family oriented.
Kiowa High School is a public high school in Stringtown. The principal of Kiowa High School is Ron Slawson. 95 children attend Kiowa High School and identify mostly as White, non-Hispanic; American Indian/Alaskan Native; and Multiracial. 45% of the 95 students here are paying reduced lunch prices. The ratio of students to teachers at Kiowa High School is 9:1. Pittsburg High School is one of the nearest high schools.

|Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander||0%||%|
|Students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch program||45%||58%|
I was a graduate from Kiowa High School & then attended a DIVISION ONE university. The education I received at KHS did NOT prepare me for college. There were no options for Advanced Placement classes or any additional challenges for students who were "coasting" through. This caused a rude awakening to me when I started college. Maybe teachers don't challenge their well-performing students because they are busy focusing on the ones that are struggling who might fail the state test that directly affects their funding. Both the behind and ahead students need to be focused on. There is VERY LITTLE diversity in this school and I believe that diversity is KEY to student development and learning. It is important to learn from each other. Also it is a small school in a small town which I believe really made the bullying that happened even more terrible and personal because literally everyone knew about it. Overall I graduated college and I'm currently working on my Master's so I can't be too upset. I just know that I was NOT prepared for college when I began & I know that's very important for potential students to consider.
