Kennewick High School

The Kennewick School District completed a $109.5 million project to replace Kennewick High School with a modern, two-story building that can serve up to 2,000 students.

The project, funded from the district’s 2019 voter-approved bond and state funds, consolidates the school in a single 292,000-square-foot high school. The project incorporated the existing Lions’ Den Gym and remodeled auditorium into the new design while retiring the original school, built in the 1950s.

Ryan Jones, capital project manager for the school district, oversaw the work. The project team included Fowler Construction of Richland and manager Wenaha Group of Kennewick.

MMEC Architecture of Kennewick and DLR Group, which has offices in Seattle, served as architects.

The project was completed in August and the district held grand opening ceremonies on Aug. 28, just days before the start of the fall term.
