Kent School serves children in Preschool through Grade 8 on our scenic campus on the bank of the Chester River in historic Chestertown, MD. All teaching is guided by research informed mind, brain and education science.
Kent School students in Grade 4 and Grade 7 recently engaged in STEM activities related to their Chesapeake Bay Studies curriculum. Grade 4 students, in conjunction with The Center for Environment and Society at Washington College participated in a buoy building activity.
Students were challenged to design and build a buoy that would both float and support at least fifteen golf balls. The golf balls represent equipment that a real life buoy might hold when in operation.
Kent School is a Maryland Green School designated by The Maryland Association for Environmental and Outdoor Education (MAEOE). Maryland Green Schools are part of a national and international community of sustainable green schools. Our students are becoming better stewards of our Earth’s resources and developing a deeper understanding of their own local environment.
For more than two decades, Chesapeake Bay Studies has been a signature program at Kent School. Led by long-time Lower School Science Teacher Pam Deringer, the nationally recognized Bay Studies curriculum is a highlight of fourth grade science and includes several hands-on field learning experiences for the students.
