For over 90 years, Kennett High School (KHS) has been the flagship of what innovative education in a close-knit community can look like. Amidst the darkest days of the Great Depression, citizens of Kennett Square, the surrounding townships and independent schoolhouses united in making the conscious decision to fund the construction of the Kennett Consolidated School with the help and vision of our friend and neighbor, Pierre S. DuPont.
The opening of KHS was covered in the New York Times for its innovative design and amenities, many of which were not seen outside of major cities in the 1930's. Even as the years have passed and many changes were made, KHS remains a paragon for what this community stands for and happy students traverse the front steps every day as they have since January 4, 1932.
Today, KHS continues to serve the community and the 1,300+ Blue Demons that call our school their second home. Students receive a high-quality education in a number of core subjects such as English, Mathematics, Social Studies and Science, along with countless other electives taught by a passionate faculty whose top priority is inspiring our students and building positive relationships with the leaders of tomorrow.
