The Kent School District is a department that truly cares about the students who are part of the Kent community. The superintendent, Calvin Watts, creates the time to visit schools throughout the district meeting students and staff. Through his actions, he shows that he genuinely cares for us because of how he engages with the students and talks with the staff. As a whole, the district is undoubtedly attentive, takes into consideration our concerns, and makes sure that they are fully met. The Kent School District is one of the best districts in Washington, even though they were in debt, they were able to jump right back up and make a fair deal with the teachers to make their goals met of better pay. Overall, the Kent School District is an incredible facility! That ensures the safety of all students and staff members, and that is why I am proud to be part of the Kent School District.
My experience in the Kent school district was really good. The high school I’m at right now is Kent meridian and two of my three Siblings graduated from there and I’ll be graduating in 2019 form Kent meridian. The Kent school district would always plan ahead of time and would always let my parents know if something was coming up. They would always involve your parents no matter what was going on. Also What I liked about the school district is that they would help you and do whatever it takes for you to graduate. They only took the best out of the best teachers they could get and every teacher there wanted the best for you. So Kent school district is a really good district!
