Kent Place second-graders have been studying the people, animals, and geographies of our world’s continents — as they are today and from many years ago — as part of their science and social studies curricula, and this week they went on an exciting field trip that would bring their lessons to life. Equipped with their backpacks, notebooks, and adventurous spirits, the girls visited the Museum of Natural History, in New York City.
Track and Field
Over the years, the Dragon Track & Field Team has amassed an impressive record in both the Union County League and the New Jersey Prep School League.
The team boasts NJ Meet of Champion winners and sets records at the conference, league, and school levels. Our program develops strong, self-assured scholar-athletes who consistently raise the bar for themselves and one another.
The team has many event-specific coaches, whose goal is to help each girl to build her skills in order to help the team perform as a competitive unit. Recent graduates of the program have gone on to participate in some of the best Division I, Ivy, and NESCAC programs in the country — at, for example, Vanderbilt, Yale, UPenn, and Hamilton College.
