  • What Our Parents Are Saying

    The response from Kent School to the need for Distance Learning was seamless for our children.  Even before a single day of school was missed, administrators and teachers were already in communication with us about their initial plans to handle continuing the education of our young children. As their plans evolved, teachers communicated about the changes and we are never wondering what to expect next.  I talked to friends all over the state and country who, weeks later, still don’t have any communication about what their children should be working on, let alone things like virtual circle time, school work packets from their classrooms and activities for “extras” such as Spanish, Music, Art, Science and Library to keep their studies going forward.

Morning homeroom meetings, lunch buddies, engaging classroom assignments, as well as the ability to talk face-to-face with her classmates and teachers. It has really helped her establish some normalcy during these challenging times."

One thing is certain, all who teach and learn have always appreciated our unparalleled setting, and we cannot wait to return.
