What Students Are Saying

3.68 Average Rating
Classes are hard. Stay in touch with all teachers, always ask questions, get help because Knox has so many resources to help the students succeed. Although classes may be difficult, it is really easy to pass if you work for it.
Steven from Chicago, IL
knox really has great academics. the teachers are top-notch. they're definitely interested in helping students, so take advantage of that! form relationships, they'll be useful, and really fully take advantage of the academic opportunities!
Sara from Littleton, CO
Seeing as that you only take 3 classes per trimester (ten weeks), none of the work assigned to you will be meant to keep you busy. Also, your classes will be (or should be) ones that you have an interest in but also follow the guidelines given by Knox. With that in mind, the rigor of each course will be proven essential for what you are interested in studying.
Adilene from Atlanta, GA
The classes are challenging, yet educating. Even though the classes can be tough, there is always someone to help. There are a lot of readings to do for class, but most of them are interesting. The professors at Knox expect a lot from you and always give you their support.
Brenda from Chicago, IL
We only take 3 classes a term, but the workload feels as though you might have 4-5 classes instead. Students definitely work hard and academics are taken very seriously.
Courtney
The classes I have taken at Knox have been challenging but not even close to impossible. The work load can be large at times, but it is nice to be able to concentrate on three classes per trimester, and professors are almost always willing to work with students in order to maximize their educations.
