U.S. News included Kennesaw Mountain in their 2013 list of
Best High Schools. The list
evaluates schools on overall student performance on
state-mandated assessments, as well as how effectively schools
educated their black, Hispanic and economically disadvantaged
students. Performance on Advanced Placement exams was then used

Kennesaw Mountain was rated as one of the top 25 high schools
in the state of Georgia.
2013, the Washington Post
again included Kennesaw Mountain in its listing of
Most Challenging High Schools. The list is based on the
Post's "Challenge Index," which looks at the total number of
Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate and Advanced
International Certificate of Education tests given at a school
each year and divides that number by the number of seniors who
graduated in May or June.

Prepare for the SAT with The Princeton Review at Kennesaw
Mountain High School!
During the SAT course The Princeton Review administers three
full-length diagnostic SATs, each with a detailed analysis
pinpointing individual strengths and weaknesses. The individual
attention The Princeton Review gives each student is only one
reason for the success of this program. Equally important is the
focus of the classes. The Princeton Review approach includes a
thorough review of all math, reading and writing skills tested
on the SAT--including the student-written essay. However, they
go beyond that--they teach test-taking techniques that make
students feel in control of, rather than controlled by, the SAT.
The tuition covers all the work they do, including classroom
instruction, three diagnostic tests, 24/7 access to online
student resources, and all course materials. To learn more about
The Princeton Review, please visit
