Kendrick High School provides a wonderful, high quality learning
environment where all students can achieve success and become prepared
to pursue future educational, professional and career goals. We have
excellent teachers and an efficient staff who work together to
make Kendrick High School a great place for students to learn and
blossom into productive citizens.
In an effort to provide an education for all students which prepares them for the 21st Century, we continuously invest in ways of making technology and new innovative research best practices a part of every student's experience. In 2004, the entire school was renovated to include new paint, new doors and many other technological improvements including fiber-optic computer network wiring throughout the building with over 1000 network drops. Kendrick has since continued to embrace technology by adding SMART Boards in the majority of all classes. Several classrooms are also equipped with Elmo or SMART document cameras, SMART slates, desktop computers, MacBooks, iMacs and netbooks.
Kendrick High School is the home of the Academy of Communication Arts and Design (ACAD) magnet which is comprised of Graphic Communication, Art, Journalism and Marketing courses. In the ACAD magnet program, students will gain fundamental work place skills, technical application skills, and interpersonal skills necessary to enter and succeed in diverse careers associated with the graphic/print communications industry. Academy students will learn about artistic expression, computer operations, graphics and imagery software applications, machinery operation, desktop publishing, photography, camera equipment/digital electronic printing, image assembly, offset processes, print, journalism, teamwork, problem solving, and communications skills necessary in today’s modern graphic/printing communications facilities.
