The Kennett Consolidated School District is proud to announce that U.S. News & World Report has named Kennett High School one of America’s Best High Schools.
To produce the 2017 Best High Schools rankings, U.S. News & World Report teamed up with North Carolina–based RTI International, a global nonprofit social-science research firm. The comprehensive rankings methodology is based on the key principles that a great high school must serve all of its students well, not just those who are college bound, and that it must be able to produce measurable academic outcomes to show it is successfully educating its student body across a range of performance indicators.
“This award is meaningful because it reflects the growth in academic achievement realized by our students. I congratulate our parents for their influence on our students’ efforts to work to their potential, our teachers and principals at all grade levels who teach and give of their time to our students each day with the expectation that they all succeed, and the students themselves for their desire to do their best,” says Kennett Consolidated School District superintendent Dr. Barry Tomasetti. “This type of high school recognition is a credit to all of our teachers, from kindergarten through twelfth grade, as each teacher has a hand in molding our students for a successful future.”
“It is motivating and satisfying to see the hard work of our students and the dedication of our teachers recognized by U.S. News & World Report,” says Kennett High School principal Dr. Jeremy Hritz. “The success of Kennett High School is the direct result of their daily efforts. I am very fortunate as principal to work with such amazing students and teachers.”
