Welcome to the Upper School
The educational experience — both inside the classroom and beyond it — is designed to achieve these ends. Whether Kent Place students are experimenting in the STEM lab, competing on the playing field, leading a club meeting, editing a publication or performing on stage, they are engaged in learning that is creative, collaborative and inspired; students learn to think critically and to solve problems through multiple lenses no matter the task. They also learn in an environment that prioritizes their well being; we want students to be the academics, athletes, artists, activists they aspire to be and we know that this can only happen if they are happy and well. High school is a time when young people want to be independent and free from the pressure and influence of adults but they are also looking for mentors and role models to emulate. Faculty choose to teach at Kent Place because they want to mentor ambitious young people and to partner both with parents who want this experience for their children and also with students who want this for themselves.
