School Notes:

Kent School is a regional, independent day school serving students from Pre-Kindergarten through Eighth Grade. We accomplish our mission by setting high academic and personal standards; by having a devoted and highly skilled faculty; and by actively living our community values of integrity, respect, responsibility and friendship. We honor the diverse backgrounds and special talents of our students and strive to maintain a strong school-home partnership and a safe, warm environment. Our students leave Kent School ready for the challenges of college-preparatory secondary schools.Central to our mission is a school philosophy built upon several principles. We understand that the child is at the center of the learning process. We encourage our students to be resourceful, independent and disciplined learners who have the confidence to take risks and who readily accept new challenges. We recognize the power of interdisciplinary teaching. We value our commitments and connections to our local and global communities. 
Kent School admits students of any race, color, national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.
