Small school, close community with great educational opportunities. Smaller class sizes allow for more one on one help. Involvement in sports makes the high school experience that much better. It's easy to make friends because everyone is extremely inclusive and ready to involve you. The counselor that works there is very interested in helping every single student that attends the school. He can help with anything from relationship problems to college worries. The principal is ALWAYS involved in student affairs and makes the school and very tight knit community. Overall, an exceptional school with great staff. Loved going there for my entire life!

I liked the closeness of the community. Everyone knows everyone, and everyone gets along. The teachers have been there for years and are highly trained. The learning environment is fantastic, with many opportunities to do well in and out of school. There are many clubs to join, and very experienced members to help you do your best. Overall a fantastic learning environment, I enjoyed growing up in this school, and making all the friends that I did.
The experience I had from Kent City high school was a great one. Sports were my largest enjoyment from the school. The teams that I was on included football, wrestling, and track & field. Wrestling was the main focus for me through my high school experience. The team was coached by a man that is unequal to any other coach that i had ever had, his name was Chad Kik. Mr.Kik coached the team with great determination and ability to bring out the most from every wrestler. The skills he tough us in practices and tournaments were skill that could be applied to everyday life. Dedication and honor was the main focus of couch Kik's agenda, it could be seen by everyone whoever competed against us.
