School Notes:

Kent Denver’s forward-looking college preparatory program inspires students to think critically and creatively, to write and speak persuasively, and to deepen their understanding of the world around them. Our students thrive in small classes characterized by individual attention and a heartfelt sense of advocacy offered by teachers, coaches and mentors, as well as peer groups of motivated young people. Through a wide variety of academic and co-curricular opportunities, we encourage our students to build a lifelong intellectual curiosity and a generosity of spirit, and to think hard about challenging questions and problems. All members of the Kent Denver community—students, faculty, staff, parents, and administrators—embrace the school’s core values: Integrity, Respect, Personal Growth, Community, and Wisdom.
