Kent School District Reviews

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.
I really like the Kent School District. I have been a part of the Kent School District for 13 years (K-12). I have always felt safe, comfortable, and encouraged. Comparing the curriculum of this district to other districts, I feel like this district is really above other districts, and that was awesome for me because I love to learn and be challenged in education. Overall, the KSD is a really great district!
