Sitll needed to improve.ME School visited our education center at Curious Kid and I must say, they were very well behaved when handling our animals, they listened to all the teachers instructions diligently, and there English was excellent!

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.
Kent School District is a diverse community with students who come from all sorts of backgrounds, and around the world. My experience was good so far, help is offered a majority of the time and opportunities- Volunteer, jobs, programs, etc. are sent through email. There are many clubs to try, and the student environment is mixed from ambitious students to relaxed rebellious ones as well. Staff is kind and understanding as far as I've seen, however some teacher's classes are, at times distracted. There are quite a number of students who do misbehave and disrupt the class, and some teachings on subjects are not effective. A few classes are a bit difficult than others due to the personality and methods of teachers, who at times don't make sense or offer help. Overall there are improvements to be made, but my school journey so far was enjoyable.
