Kenston High School is a public high school located in Bainbridge Township, Ohio, near Chagrin Falls. It serves most of Bainbridge Township and all of neighboring Auburn Township and is the only high school in the Kenston Local School District. Kenston High School was established in 1953 with the consolidation of the Auburn and Bainbridge Township schools and moved to its current facility in August 2006. Academics include a wide array of courses and it fields numerous boys and girls sports teams. Athletic teams are known as the Bombers and the school colors are blue and white.

History[edit]

Kenston High School developed out the now defunct Bainbridge High School in the mid-twentieth century. At its inception it was a vocational school, similar to the nearby Auburn Career Center of today, but eventually evolved into a four-year academic high school. In 2006 the high school was moved from the current middle school to where it is now.

Athletics[edit]
