Kent City School District has amazing schools with wonderful opportunities. They have many extracurriculars, in sports, the arts, and sciences, which are very valuable for the students. I have done a lot of things in colorguard, drama, zoology, and GSA, all of which I have had wonderful experiences with. With academics, Kent schools have very high standards for education and have wonderful teachers that care about their students, both in how prepared they are for life outside of high school and in their mental health. I was supported immensely in my high school and middle school career.

I went to school at Kent State University and graduated with a bachelor's. Kent provided me with the necessary tools and mindset to get out into the real world and pursue a Master's degree. Kent had wonderful nightlife and a safe campus with security options available at the press of a button. Kent is far enough of a commute to feel like a college, but close enough to home. I graduated with a 3.6 and almost all of my professors were fantastic. The principal is lovely, too.
The sports at this school are not the best but there is a lot of spirit. There is a good variety of classes that can be taken. The high school has many different programs, Career Technological Education Programs, along with CCP which is a post-secondary program.
