    Aef Schools Photo - Kentwood Preparatory High School represents a significant shift from traditional high school philosophies with limited enrollment and a self-governing body, and is also characterized by high expectations for all students. Accordingly, "We Prepare Children for Life?" is much more than a slogan here at Kentwood. It is the driving force behind our curriculum, the structure of our program.

A finer school to teach at, one will never find. That rare school that allows the teacher to actually formulate each lesson specific to the learning modalities of each individual student. This allows the teacher to not only insure that every student is able to learn according to his or her best potential, but also feel a part of the overall instruction. Students are empowered to learn, and the results are wonderful to witness on a daily basis!!

This school provided an awesome education for my child; I found they were able to help when no one else could. They did not charge above the McKay and provided support to my child and family in a time of need.
