Kenwood Academy is all about peer groups, why not fit into one? There are many different peer groups within Kenwood Academy, and there is always enough room to fit in. Never go to think that “this group is too popular” or “this group is too lame” or even “Maybe I won’t fit in,” think about the differences many differences that lie within the school of Kenwood.

There are, about 2000 students that attend Kenwood Academy, and each and every one of these students have their different personalities that fit into different groups depending on the people they click with.

Many students may start at Kenwood with no peers and may end up with many peer friends and develop many clique groups maybe because you have lunch with this person or you have most classes with this other student or maybe even you just wanted to be a friendly person and develop friends. It’s okay because eventually you will soon meet your own friends and create your own clique groups.

These photos show the different peer groups that are formed and show how many people can click together and wound up being friends together. These students find opportunities to click together and associate with each other whether it’s through their lunch period, during their free time in gym, sitting in the hallway chairs during 8th period or even hanging out in the hallways; before and after school; Somehow, some way, students will always find someone to associate with during any period throughout their school day.

Before you go to thinking that you have no friends or you cannot obtain any because you are not a friendly person or other friends may be too mean for you, think about the many opportunities that you can have to eventually earn a friend and create your own peer group. You can also think of the fact that you can make a friend when you would like to fill up free time or just because you are bored; There is always going to be a friend there for you.
