I attended Kent Place School from 2nd grade up until I graduated! When I was enrolled as a student, I strongly disliked the all-girls aspect of the school, however, now as an alumna, I believe that it served as quite a benefit. I was able to focus exclusively on academics and was not distracted by the need to impress boys (because they weren't present!) As a result, my reading comprehension, writing, mathematics, and foreign language skills were strengthened and I truly learned the value of a quality education. I absolutely loved my teachers and they were always open to helping me outside of class. Regarding some of the more negative aspects, I believe that the price tag on this school is a bit high. In addition, I felt there was a sense of competitiveness among my class due to the fact that there were such small class sizes and I disliked the pettiness that circulated the halls. Overall, however, Kent Place is a great school with very high quality education.

Leadership x 100 -If you want your girl to have authentic leadership opportunities, send her her. She will be surrounded by ambitious, smart, caring girls who celebrate each other's accomplishments. The school has great diversity. Girls work hard here but also get to be silly and have fun. The new STEAM (science, technology, engineering, visual arts, and math) center will be amazing and the Ethics center and teaches what is lacking in our schools today - character counts. I do wish the food choices for lunch were better but they are working on it. They take safety seriously here. Athletics - they have just added ice hockey and sailing. Wow!The parents are very supportive and involved here. Lots of opportunities for clubs and activities. Colleges seem to really like KPS students - take a look at the college list and you will be impressed. Thumbs up for this school - best choice I made for my two daughters!
Kent Place is the most amazing school! Everybody gets along and there are not really solid cliques, you are allowed to hang out with whoever you want to on any given day. The classes are challenging enough and far superior to classes at other schools, making a Kent Place student more prepared to college in comparison to her peers. The college placement and SAT/ACT scores that come out of this school are legendary. If you want to attend an Ivy League school or top 50 college, KPS is the place to be.
