New Kent County Public Schools Reviews

New Kent has been my home for the past 7 years. I have loved how the school community takes you in and really makes you feel welcomed. They are very good about safety and what to do when something terrible has happened. The teachers are great people to talk to and learn from. i really feel like they want to be there. The only negative part is that this is my last year here! I am very sad but excited that next year when I visit I will be an alumni.

They offer a variety of classes and most of the teachers are very helpful. Additionally, there are several clubs designed to give students a place to be. One example is the Gay-Straight Alliance which is a comfort zone for all those students who need help expressing their sexuality. However, there are groups of students who mess with other students. They also tend to be loud and disruptive, which often interrupts learning. Additionally, there are teachers who seem to target certain students in their class.
New Kent is a school that offers a lot. There are so many classes you can take and you can also take classes with Bridging Communities and they help you get into college quick with your specific career choice. The teachers and administration care about the students and they will do so much to help you. The clubs and activities are a big thing, there are a lot of students who join and are actively participating in clubs and activities. I do feel safe in this school, not any one guest can just walk in, you have to push a button and wait for an officer or office person to allow you in the building and we always go over the procedures to make sure all students know what they are doing.
