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!

Honestly, Kent City is a great school. I am currently a part time student there and a part time college student at GRCC, and I love the teachers and the atmosphere at Kent City High School. All the teachers are nice and helpful, the students (most of them) are eager to learn (like me) and are so friendly. I participate in sports and academic activities and everyone is always a team player and we usually do very well in our league. There are many opportunities for success at Kent City.
Overall I rate Kent City High School a 4/5 and I would recommend people to go there.
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.
