Excellent principal leader, high quality teachers, and a state of the art school facility welcome and nurture all students. Our richly diverse Kennydale children are supported by an active PTA, volunteers in core subjects and the arts, caring neighborhoods, and a school district community focused on successful teaching and learning for all students.

I'm so very proud that my children go to Kennydale Elementary. The teachers really care, challenge students, and provide a great learning environment. Parent involvement is encouraged and there are great volunteer opportunities. I can't say enough about the principal and staff - they truly excel in their work. Since some of the last reviews have been written, the Kennydale Elementary school has been torn down and rebuilt, and another Renton Elementary school has been opened - alleviating overcrowding and providing a beautiful new school for our students.

Talented teachers, amazing staff, and gifted students all in one building. We're so blessed to have a school with such a strong PTA/school connection. The caring extended by the staff and teachers starts at the top with our amazing principal and extends all the way to our lunch lady who has her own Facebook fan page. Our amazing school is just one of the many reasons we love it here in Kennydale. Go Kodiaks!

My child was in 4th and 5th grade at Kennydale. He said that there were too many kids for the teacher to handle. The teacher often forgot his name. The advanced kids get left behind. It is average. If I could I would have pulled him out sooner.

I have 2 children attending Kennydale Elementary, going into 1st and 3rd grade. We moved into the district this spring from Seattle. Overall, we really like Kennydale. The teachers this year were top-notch. The kids were challenged appropriately, and individual needs were recognized and addressed accordingly. The atmosphere in the school and classrooms is respectful, cooperative, and kind- ultimately more important than any academics. Office staff, custodian, teachers all seem friendly and helpful. Both children were enthusiastic about lessons from the classroom, sharing frequently at home about what they were learning. The school population is economically and ethnically diverse, and that seems to be largely appreciated and celebrated. The PTA is active, organized, and open to new ideas, though lacking somewhat in fully diverse representation. Many parent volunteers in classrooms. Strong music, art (incorporated), and PE. There is no after-school program, but hopefully in new building, one will be started.

My son is just finishing kindergarten at kennydale. His class was too big, 27 kids to one teacher. Fortunately, the teacher was great! She developed self esteem. I was impressed with the teaching of reading and math. There was a lot of parent involvement-in the PTA and volunteering in the classroom. I was concerned at the beginning of the year because the kids (kindergarten) weren't being supervised in the 10 minute window before school. I complained, and the problem was solved.
