Amy Meislin Pollack, Class of 1970 and a children’s-book author, returned to the place where she was first inspired to write — the Kent Place Primary School. Amy visited the fourth- and fifth-grade classrooms to read from one of her books and lead writing workshops to foster creativity and explore the art of storytelling.
At Kent Place, we love nothing more than getting to know prospective families and showing them what makes Kent Place “the school for Brave and Brilliant Girls.”

Kent Place is located in Summit, New Jersey, approximately 20 miles west of New York City. With green spaces, towering trees, and a blend of historic Tudor architecture and more modern facilities, our 26-acre campus is comfortable and welcoming. Many students come to school by public and private transportation, including the New Jersey Transit train, which brings students to the Summit train station — where KPS provides a shuttle bus to and from campus.
Kent Place's campus is just a five-minute walk to the center of Summit, an historic downtown that offers variety of attractions and resources from hotels and inns to playhouses and an arboretum to shopping and dining. Seniors have the independence to walk to town when they are free during school hours (when their senior privilege is granted!). Many students take advantage to walk into town to shop local business or get an ice cream after school with friends.
OUR VIRTUAL TOUR
We hope you'll come and experience Kent Place in person — it's the best way to see our community in action. However, we have a virtual campus map and tour if you are unable to make the trip or just want to check us out before booking an appointment. When you are ready to join us in person, give us a shout at email@example.com or (908) 273-0900, ext. 254.
