Schools Recognized For Student Achievement

Seven elementary schools and two high schools met or exceeded the Kennewick School Board's challenging goals for student reading and math achievement and graduation success.

The School Achievement Awards celebrate 90 percent or more of students in specific grades being at or above grade level in math or reading on the Measures of Academic Program (MAP) test, or having the most improvement in reading scores over the course of the 2016-17 school year. The district also recognized high schools that met the district's goal that 90 percent of students graduate high school within five years of enrolling as a freshman.

“We set challenging standards because we know how important they are to future success in school and life,” said Superintendent Dave Bond. “While the national average is to have about half of your students above grade level, the fact we’re getting above 90 percent at or above grade level in many of our schools says a lot about the quality of instruction and our commitment to growth.”

Congratulations to all of this year’s achievement award winners!
