I've been a student at Kent Mountain View Academy since the third grade. It's a small school with a great environment for students to grow with one another with the attentive care of a wonderful staff who evidently care for the student body. As wonderful as my years have been at this school, there's unfortunately some limitations that come with attending a small academic environment. For instance, we don't have sports team or clubs which make it difficult to participate in extracurricular activities and honor societies like most other conventional schools. However, it was this very type of environment gave me incentive to take initiative and think outside of the box to find opportunities for my academic and professional achievement. The intimate environment of Kent Mountain View makes it a great place for young students, especially from elementary to middle school, to develop in a caring but competitive curriculum.

Ever since I came to this school in 3rd grade, learning for me has been a wonderful experience! All the staff value every student and cherish teaching each individual student. There is a wonderful sense of community among the students and staff.
I loved that KMVA was the perfect niché for intelligent, introverted, minds. While we lost a great teacher, the staff are wonderful and personable. However, while KMVA is praised for the academic minded, there aren't enough resources to really give a variety of classes. If scientific minds are inquiring, a regular school has more funding and opportunities.
