Kennewick High School is known throughout the area for its diversity and culture! It has many clubs and extracurricular activities available for students to participate in. It's International Baccalaureate program has aided in the education of countless students over the years, including me. It exceeds academically and our sports programs do decently well every year against other state competitors. The only thing needs to change is parent involvement. Many students come from rather poor demographic areas and their parents are too busy working to help volunteer at the school, so many club or sports activities are not as supported by the community as they could be.

Kennewick High School has such an inviting atmosphere that is great for students! The teachers are very helpful when it comes to student learning, they go out of their way to give them the best education possible. During my three years at Kennewick High School I made many memories at school, with friends and teachers. The available programs and clubs are perfect for students. There is great diversity in the school that allows students to learn more about different cultures. There are many after school clubs. Counselors are very supportive and helpful when it comes to college preparations. I highly recommend Kennewick High School.
Kennewick High was my favorite part of my years in school. I felt so welcome and so accepted! It made learning so much easier and I actually WANTED to learn. There were a few set backs because of high school drama that I had got pulled into somehow. Besides that, this school gave me life long friends that I still have today, being in college. I actually learned the material in my classes because the teachers were so good about giving me extra help with whatever I needed. I loved this school.
