Welcome to Middle School
Kent School, an independent school located in Chestertown, Maryland on Maryland’s Eastern Shore serves children in Preschool, Elementary School and Middle School. The Middle School is comprised of Grades 5 through 8. The Middle School program is designed to promote academic and personal growth in our students. We expect them to be responsible learners and help them develop an awareness of self and others. With appropriate challenges and the support of a caring faculty, our students develop a genuine sense of self esteem. Critical thinking, research, and organizational skills are taught across disciplines; an integrated language arts and history program is offered in fifth and sixth grades; and small group teaching, collaborative and cooperative learning, and peer review are stressed. Our students graduate from Grade 8 prepared for the opportunities and challenges associated with a variety of secondary school selections including rigorous boarding schools, private day schools and area public schools.
