Senior: District 30 is one of the best places to visit because you get a very welcoming feel. The people there are also very community based in which they value the sculpture parks, the beautiful murals on the walls, and even the two community gardens they've raised. Long Island City High School is a community school so students like us are privileged to go on trips and constantly be aware of our school environment .Being in this community has even inspired me to hopefully move to a similar community where you can get to experience a culture of kindness and respect to our surroundings.

Parent: Overall, my daughter had a positive experience at the Upper School. She is well prepared for college academics.
As with many prep schools, the students at Kent Place are overwhelmingly goal oriented. Everything these kids do seems directed towards the college application process. The culture of achievement, of resume building, can be overwhelming. There are many bright and talented girls who go here.
Strengths of the school currently include the English department and the History department. It has been challenging for the school to recruit strong math and science teachers, despite having a nice new STEM building.
If you're reading this trying to decide if your daughter should go here, do your homework. If she is smart, ambitious and hard working, this might be the place for her. She will be challenged. She will be tested. She will be stressed. And she will be very proud that she endured all of this, and go on to a great college somewhere.
