Kent County Reviews
Kent County is decent. I feel Coventry is the best part of Kent County. Warwick and West Warwick, I feel, are the worst parts. Schools in Warwick are poor, they can't afford the use of in-school laptops, and they couldn't even afford sports, and same goes for West Warwick, while Coventry has a good school system. Warwick is only populated because it's off of Route 37, and has an airport. Warwick is also running-down. The neighborhoods, look like they're falling apart. The only good parts of Warwick are, Warwick Neck, Gaspee Point, and Governor Francis Farms. West Warwick is decent, Arctic is the worst, and the only good parts in West Warwick is Lippit, Crompton, and Natick. Coventry, is very distant from house to house, and is very safe.
Kent County is great for middle income families that want their kids to go to safe public schools without the outrageous cost of living as some other counties.
