My daughter and son-in-law both graduated from kamiakin HS. Two of my grandchildren recently graduated from KHS. We were originally from Richland so I had my doubts. 27 yrs later I am impressed with this school. Academics is their first priority, though they have excellent sports program, it is a must to maintain a passing GPA to participate. The music program is great. There are programs for everyone and parents are really involved. They prepare their students for graduation, workforce, & college. The principal and teachers closely monitor the success of each student. The math/science programs are excellent. The students are respectful. The dress code is excellent compared to other high schools in this area. All schools have problems with drugs and bullying. Kamiakin has fewer incidents. The only problem I have is the school sits in an undesirable neighborhood. I give this school 8 out of 10.

You are going to find good and bad in every school. Kamaikin is no different. On the positive side there are some very good and caring teachers, academics - pretty strong. Negative side, possibly because of the schools location there are some dangerous elements and temptations present. I feel that there is a blind eye turned towards many of these issues with too little effort to rid the school of these problems. As always be involved with your kids and watch who they hang around. If I had to do it all over again would I have sent my kids here? I am sorry but probably not.

Great school! Excellent programs and caring teachers. The sports could be a little less political in cutting players especially in basketball!

Teachers are great! Love the variety of programs. Sports is good just tough to get playing time for all my efforts. I feel safe at school. Great music program.

Kamiakin is an excellent high school. Definitely the best high school in the Tri-Cities. The kids do not get lost in the shuffle.

My child loves his school. The academics there are great. Great sports program, Great Principle, but I think they need a complete overhaul of there math dept. kids are getting pushed through without learning. Do not get the helped needed so they can pass the class. I think with Wasl it has taken away from learning real math. But otherwise I think it is the best High School in the Kennewick district.

I have had four students go through this school and it is the best in the area by far- much more rigorous than other high schools. Discipline is excellent, students do not bully or treat one another badly- adults are on top of it. Wonderful experience for all four children.

I have a senior this year and we've all enjoyed his high school experience. KaHS teachers and staff have done a wonderful job in helping to prepare our students for their futures as adults. Please support KaHS and help them continue providing excellence to our students.

Good school for motivated students. Some very excellent teachers. Sports are limited for boys unless you are into football. Average Joe may struggle for a good education because of lack of consequences for failure to follow rules. Some classes are hard to concentrate through the spit wads and talking of students. Gifted students are in paradise!

The school has a history of having spirit ,but people need to remember that these students are the future and need to be treated like young adults not little kids.The school also has one of the better G.P.A.'s in the area .Keep up the good work and let's help the students continue their journey into the real world .
