Diversity & Academic Excellence
New Jersey is one of the most diverse states in the country. As an independent school that pools from over 80 different communities, we have the opportunity to truly reflect diversity in many ways.
Diversity enriches the student experience by building problem-solving, critical thinking and other crucial 21st-century learning and leadership skills. In our increasingly shrinking global world, awareness of multiple perspectives beyond our own is necessary for success and leadership possibilities. At Kent Place School, we are committed to our mission to educate students for responsible participation in a global community. We value diversity and seek to be inclusive and affirming of all the different voices and stories at our community’s table. Through our curriculum, conversations and our campus climate we seek to be culturally responsive and equitable. Diversity is not a program, but rather the fabric of our community.
