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!
Review Kent Place School
I've attended this school for a long time and I love it! It's such a welcoming and tight-knit community that has become a second family to me. Besides the people, the academics are astounding and the teachers are simply amazing. All my teachers want to see their students succeed and get to know each student individually, which is something not every school can offer. One of the best things about Kent Place is that clubs, orchestra, singing, etc. are built into the schedule, so people can be in clubs, and sing, and play sports without them conflicting. Finally, Kent Place has also recently begun construction that will create the Center for Innovation and Design, new athletic facilities, and a new theater along with new facilities for the arts. It will make Kent Place even better than it already is! Bottom line-- it's a truly amazing school that creates amazing students and leaders that are very prepared for college.
I was a student here from pre-k to 9th grade and every year had the same problem with bullying. The only help I ever got was the wonderful Dr. Hayes. Although I had many wonderful friendships come from my time at KPS, many of my colleagues overall experience was damaged by the lack of care towards our emotion rather than only academics.
