Kennewick School District Reviews
Though the location causes seasons to go into extremes, the people of the school system are amazing, really friendly and helpful. Even though the district administration follows the neighboring districts (Richland and Pasco) with almost all major decisions, it is a great place for students K-12!
The Kennewick school district has provided me with the basis of my education and brought me to a 3.9 GPA. The community is well connected with the KSD website proving to show a willingness to improve itself throughout this modern age. They have a variety of hybrid programs (GED) that provide me with a mixture of online and onsite courses not dissimilar to a college. They have proven to provide safety instructions and modern camera hardware around their campuses for the student's protection. Then, the educators themselves show an understanding for those who wish to go above and beyond with entertaining yet educational projects. Their college readiness shows disparity with a fairly common social-driven crowd that shows more regard to pop culture rather than future growth. Now, I ultimately rate this school district highly for anyone looking for a higher form of education or accommodations to mental/physical disabilities.
I thought the student engagement at Kamiakin High School was great. If you're an athlete you have many chances to exceed in your sport as the coaches just want to see you grow. The facilities such as the weight room and other facilities used for sports were great and were well kept. Everyone respects the equipment at all times. The classes for me were not specifically challenging, I found them to be very easy. Teachers were all around very helpful if I had any questions if I needed to ask. Most of the faculty let us eat in classrooms if we needed help with a particular assignment that we found tricky. Although they aren't too fond of necessarily making us college-ready, mostly just teaching to a test. The school itself is not very diverse, but everyone is given the chance to involve themselves with the school. There are many clubs to choose from as well. All in all, I would this school made my high school experience bearable and fun.
