    Kent Denver School Reviews

    I had a great experience at Kent Denver. I was given every opportunity to succeed academically, and in any other path, I chose to follow whether it was football or music. I grew close relationships with my fellow students and many of the faculty.
    The only aspect of this school that leaves a lot to be desired is how ignorant many of the students and staff are. This is undoubtedly a product of the lack of cultural and socioeconomic diversity absent from both the students and faculty. I was unintentionally coined the token racial student by my peers and teachers, yet I was mistaken countless times for the few other students who shared my ethnic background.
    Despite the lack of diversity at Kent, I never felt out of place there. The only thing that was genuinely frustrating was the people around me who made over-enthusiastic attempts to normalize my identity as if it was somehow abnormal by default. I am glad Mr. Mundy returned, and I hope he stays busy over the next few years.

    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.
    The teachers and academics are truly top-notch at Kent. However, any time you want to try something new or bring something new to Kent in terms of events or programs, expect a fight with the administration. Kent tries to market itself as somewhat diverse but it really isn't at all. You'll be college-ready coming out of Kent but you won't necessarily be prepared for the real world beyond their artificial bubble.
