Kenmore West High School, Athletic Complex

Kenmore, New York

Physical-education programs have changed dramatically since 1938, when Kenmore West Senior High School was designed. The original gymnasium had barely enough room along the sidelines for team benches, let alone bleachers for spectators. With the new gymnasium complex, the school can meet today’s needs easily and is prepared to meet the needs of the future.
