    Very pleased with King Philip. Teachers that really care about our children an energetic involved principal and plenty for all to do whether an athlete or a musician. Colleges must think highly of this school system as from my own experience and from what I hear from others students are accepted at a wide range of colleges/universities. Many AP courses are offered as well. Like any school it's all about making the most of it

    If you're a student considering transferring to KPHS or you're a parent looking for a school suitable for your children I highly recommend looking elsewhere. To be quite frank the administration here is downright poor. Their decisions frequently put students in danger e.g. refusing to close school the morning of a 6" snow when road conditions are awful (we only missed one school day for Nemo and that's only because the governor instituted a road ban) not closing school during gas leaks (they happen a little too frequently for comfort) keeping school open when the ceilings schoolwide are blatantly leaking (a sign of possible roof-collapse) etc. It's actually quite comical and the teachers will frequently note this. Their elevator is coming up on 6 months since the expiration date and it's still used frequently. The 7-period a day schedule is a far-cry from being "college preparatory " and it ends up increasing workload while decreasing learning. I'm not some disgruntled student writing a review about how X teacher is a jerk I'm a high school senior who's been to several high schools who can offer some insight. This school has it's plusses but the cons far outweigh them.
