I am currently a junior at Kentridge High School and so far I have enjoyed my experience at this campus. I have made amazing memories with the music program, sports/clubs, and AP classes. The people (students and teachers alike) have made a positive influence on this school, which is rare to find. Overall, this school has impacted me for the best!
I like how diverse the school is. There are 4 highschools that start with “Kent” in the kent school district. Kentridge, Kentlake, Kentwood, and Kent-Meridian. All different school with similar campus’s, but our school is the most diverse school ratio-ing from all races and all types of religions and backgrounds. It just made the whole “high school experience” really an amazing overall experience. With the teachers are getting degrees from top schools in the state of Washington and all teaching valuable lessons in all classes, the teachers get in depth and in touch with the students on daily issues and answer any or all questions asked by students.
