I love Kennewick School District. They do an amazing job at keeping us safe, making sure we follow the rules, all while still letting us have fun! I would change one thing though if I was in charge. That would be how harsh they are on the girls especially when it’s really hot outside. A lot of girls get sent home even when there outfits arent that bad. Most teachers at my school base the dress code off of what they like and what they dont.

As a former student i can really say that the Kennewick school district is a double edged sword. When i was a student i could see how some schools were favored more than others. Yes, some schools has amazing staff and atmospheres but this was not true for some of the schools. I've heard stories from teachers themselves about others schools staff being under preforming and not caring about their job and it seemed that certain schools were filled with these staff members. What I'm trying to say is that the district picks favorites with its schools. Other than picking favorites when it comes to supporting its schools the districts has been making strides in order to compete with other schools. The district has been making strides to improve and has been progressing in the right direction.
I believe Southridge is a welcoming environment for students to improve their academics, athletics and social experiences. The teachers are great at making a personal connection to the students, which makes it easier to stay focused. Southridge prepares their students for college by offering many Advanced Placement (AP) classes that push them to do their best and expand their knowledge.
