From Kent Denver School

There has never been a better time to be a Sun Devil! Since our founding in 1922, Kent Denver has delivered the highest quality college preparatory experience in the Mountain West. More than 7,000 students have earned a Kent Denver diploma, thrived at top colleges and universities and gone on to lead full, meaningful, self-determined lives.

Our 200-acre campus is in the midst of an exciting transformation. In March 2018, students moved into a new, state-of-the-art middle school building. A new Visual Arts Center will open soon, and we will complete construction of a new high school classroom building and welcome center in spring 2019. In sum, we're creating more than 100,000 square feet of cutting-edge instructional spaces designed to foster the best learning environments and encourage innovation by teachers and students alike.

Learn more—and experience Kent Denver for yourself—at our Open House on Sat., Sept. 22, 9:45 a.m. – 12:05 p.m. Click the link in this box to RSVP.

    Although I have mostly enjoyed my time at Kent, after 6 years, I have seen an increase in issues with the overall administration. The academics are challenging, but the teachers and quality of learning are both excellent. The sports, food, and resources are all very good. My major issue lies with diversity, which is extremely limited as I feel the school is almost all white. Also, I have found that the administration seems very focused on its image rather than addressing problems that have lately impacted the school. I do also feel that the small student body can cause many divisions within grades. The school is excellent for academics and college prep, yet I do feel the diversity percentage, administration, and school culture can be frustrating and constricting.

    Academics: They’re pretty good, hard. Except for the upper school honors math program. You’re expected to learn through the other kids
    Teachers: Some are a little annoying, but not bad. You feel like they care. They might hate you, but they will still help you
    College: a lot colleges don’t like rich kids who went to private schools, even if they’re very smart
    Admin: A bunch of idiots. They care more about Kent’s image than what goes on inside
    Sports: Students are required to take sports, which is dumb. I wish they required kids to do any extra curricular, like theatre, make them get involved even if sports are not their thing.
    Both of my children attend Kent Denver's middle school (6th and 8th grades) and their experiences have been nothing short of extraordinary. The teachers in the middle school really know how kids learn and they help them accomplish extraordinary things. They also really love the kids... they know how important good relationships are to learning, and they work hard to make sure their students feel understood, respected and appreciated. The school community is so friendly and welcoming overall—I could not ask for a better place for my kids.
