Like any other high school, Kentlake was filled with unnecessary drama. My teachers weren't terrible nor were they the best. The students, especially the "popular" kids were rude and cliquey and often made racism, sexist, Islamaphobic, and/or homophobic remarks and were never held accountable for their hurtful words. During junior year, I left Kentlake to do running start and had a much better experience at the local community college.

Kentlake was a good school where teachers sought to harness an environment of learning, but some odd decisions where made occasionally that I believe did not assist the learning of students or increase school spirit, but were just a distraction from both. There was a nice variety of classes and a great music and drama program. This could be a great place to go to school and increase in knowledge and wisdom.
There are so many great things about being a Falcon. I personally loved the spirit marches, sporting events, and pep assemblies. Also, a lot of the teachers I had were very like able and made class pretty fun. However, there are also some downsides to Kentlake. I didn’t really like how admin handled certain situations. Overall, it’s a really great school.
