Kenmore West Senior High School 2

The school has regressed for the past 40 years. Test results are dropping rapidly and slightly below average at best. Furthermore, they lag the expected results projected by socio-economic norms. Over forty percent of students receive reduced or free lunches. Athletic teams, once routinely competitive, are perennial bottom feeders with the exception of the boy's football and basketball programs. Real estate prices are depressed. Crime is up. Do not move here or send your children here, if you value their posterity. This is a union district that pays top dollar to its employees. The taxpayers, such as they are, are getting robbed.

School learning programs based more on passing a test than actually teaching the kids something new. Inalienable rights are being restricted, overall i feel Ken. West could use new teachers and the rumor of west and east combining is absurd.... If it happens my son repeatedly claims he will drop out... Although the school has an outstanding number of clubs and extra curricular activities and a great atmosphere Kenmore west is failing kids based on the tedious work they refuse to use

My daughter had some wonderful teachers who helped her during a difficult time when her father became ill. The school has a diverse student population, many sports and clubs, and overall a great atmosphere. I would say that one teacher Mr. Conrad spoiled the school getting 5 stars. He has no business being a teacher as he does not care about the students or their future. I hope he is removed as a teacher. Now I have to worry about my son who will be a freshman in the fall getting him as a teacher. I will object and have him moved out of his class. But like the old saying goes there is always a bad apple in the bunch. Otherwise I love Ken West!
