Chesapeake Bay Studies
Middle School students continue their Chesapeake Bay Studies learning with area field trips including supervised team building exercises, sailing, fishing and crabbing experiences with Echo Hill Outdoor School. Eighth Grade students take a culminating three-day hiking trip that brings them to the highest elevation in West Virginia, where on a clear day they can get a panoramic view of the entire Chesapeake Bay watershed, the area they have been exploring at Kent School since their earliest years.
Bay Studies topics are regularly integrated into Middle School Lab Science, Mathematics and History. This interdisciplinary approach, incorporating our environment in our teaching, is a unique Kent School attribute that enhances our students' sense of curiosity about and responsibility for our natural world.
