Your family doesn’t have to worry about looking at apartments for rent in Kennewick’s “worst school district.” Kennewick has thirteen elementary schools, four middle schools, three high schools, and one quality school district.

Here are Kennewick’s most critically successful schools:


Ridge View (K-5)
A clean, safe, and orderly school, Ridge View achieved the best scores on the WASL (Washington’s standardized test) out of the thirteen elementary schools in the district. Every tested grade scored 80 to 100% (far above the state average) on every subject.

Middle School:

Desert Hill (8-10)
Desert Hill is a quality middle school that scored 10-18% above the state average on the WASL. This was the best score out of all four middle schools.

High School:

Southridge (9-12)
This high school has very strong athletics and technology programs. On the WASL, students scored 2 to 7% above the state average in most subjects (except science, in which they scored 7% below the average).
