By sharing my experience at kennedale high school. I would like to say this school makes you feel like your part of a family. My 3 years of going there plus my 4th when school opens up. It brings nothing but joy when you have all the teachers , principals, academics , administrators playing a part of your education those 4 years in high school will fly. I wouldn’t want nothing to change from this school. Happy to say I been part of a wonderful family and for my education couldn’t get any better then this.

Kennedale High School is a class 4A school. Kennedale is well known for their sports, they have had multiple state titles, runner ups, and many playoff runs. Academics are another strength at the High School as they have won consecutive UIL district titles. The football stadium and the performing arts center are some of the best facilities in the State. Kennedale offers its students a variety of clubs and organizations to join so that every student can be involved in something.
During my years of at Kennedale High School there have been many highs and lows. Kennedale has an amazing sports program with nice facilities and great athletes and coaches. The class sizes are not too big nor too small. The teachers (from my experience) show that they care about the students and the content they teach. Kennedale overall is a nice and organized small school. However, I would love to see improvement in the food department.
