Primary School | Grades K-5

Welcome to the Primary School

Kent Place's entire Primary School curriculum is driven by our firm belief that a girl's first school experience should be her best school experience — and using these early elementary school years to establish building blocks for rigorous study and to encourage self-advocacy and build self-esteem is critical to long-term academic success. Our highly integrated private school curriculum, taught by experienced faculty who know how girls think, feel and learn, provides an unrivaled foundation for excellence in all fields of study. Daily leadership opportunities — along with Morning Meeting, classroom presentations, class trips, computer skills, world languages and more — give our girls the tools and self-confidence they'll need to successfully navigate the Middle and Upper School years.

It's a privilege to guide students through the challenges and joys of early learning. Our curriculum and our programs provide dynamic experiences that foster a deeper understanding of themselves, one another, and the world around them.

Our Primary School is a vibrant, welcoming community that offers numerous opportunities for students to develop into brave, brilliant learners. We embrace our girls’ natural inclinations to question and explore the world by designing programs that promote curiosity and investigation. In our classrooms, students make connections to the curriculum and work with classmates collaboratively. Our Primary School girls belong to a community that amplifies their voices and supports them as they build the skills and confidence necessary for personal and academic achievement. -Kimberly Walker
