Head of School


I am especially excited to help you learn more about Kent School, its programs, and our unique learning community. One of the many reasons I am grateful to be at Kent School is because I get to see and experience the joyful learning that takes place here each and every day. 

From Little School to Lower School to Middle School it is my firm belief that the educational foundation we provide at Kent School is essential to create the kind of world leaders we need in our increasingly complex world. Kent School’s child-centered approach nurtures students who possess empathy, are able to work effectively on teams and who are, most especially, critical and creative thinkers. Our signature Chesapeake Bay Studies program, foreign language concentration in Spanish, Middle School Geography, and Third Grade World Studies all foster global citizenry. Our students care deeply about their community and the environment, and they bring kindness and integrity to their endeavors inside and outside of School.

As we build on our nearly 50 year history, the meaningful traditions that are a hallmark of a Kent School education will continue to  be celebrated even as we look to the future and bring innovation to our approach to teaching and learning.

I am delighted that you are exploring the Kent School website and I hope you will come visit us in person to see for yourself how joyful your child’s education can be.
