Kent School District Reviews

I am a student at Kentridge High School part of the Kent School District and my school is diverse and the teachers take the initiative to connect and communicate with their students. There are many clubs, sports, and activities offered as well for student involvement. Also, many of the teachers stay after hours and offer extra help and guidance when confused in classes. We also have an advisory period for the culminating project which prepares us for our colleges and career in the future. I appreciate how the Kent School District provides technical resources for every single student in secondary school. We each get a laptop which makes homework, connecting with the teachers and completing assignments much easier.

The Kent school district is rather diverse. Many religions, ethnicities, and people reside together. The people are welcoming and great to be around. Oen school in particular that I have personal experience of is Kentlake. The teachers are hard working and put in the effort to help children grow to their potential. The students, on the other hand, are different. Some are very unmotivated and rude. Some put in the effort to succeed which can rub off on others while the rest just come to school to socialize. The school does a horrible job at controlling the behavior of students that break the rules. For example, I have sat behind a student that vaped on the bus. The bus driver didn't' do a thing. He even blew the smoke in the bus drivers' direction!
As a senior at Kent-Meridian High School, I can truly say that our high school celebrates diversity. In fact, Kent-Meridian is the most diverse school in Washington state! We have people from literally all over the world and we accept each and every student here in the Kent district. Personally, I have grown into a much more well rounded person from being surrounded by a variety of different cultures. I've learned more about culture and even religions that I never knew existed! I love the Kent School District and their values in diversity.
