The township of Tonawanda, a community of 75,000 residents is the most immediate northern suburb of Buffalo, New York. Because of this location, Tonawanda residents can easily take advantage of the cultural and recreational activities of the city as well as those in the Kenmore-Tonawanda Community. Most of Tonawanda is residential with a heavy concentration of industry along its western border (the Niagara River). The current school enrollment (K-12) of the Kenmore-Town of Tonawanda School District is over 7,000 students.
At Kenmore East High School, we strive to develop 21st century learners by helping our students become effective communicators, global learners, critical thinkers and socially responsible citizens. The high school program focuses on preparing students for higher education.
