Meet Susan Bosland, Head of School

Welcome to KPS! We are delighted you are exploring our website. Kent Place has an exciting mission of providing a top educational experience for girls and young women, and a comprehensive, coed early childhood program. Kent Place graduates leaders, scholars and pioneers — bright and self-confident young women.

My "Welcome from the Head of School" page highlights my ever-changing Top 10 list — which gives our community members a snapshot of what is happening on campus, an opportunity for me to share recent data and a place where I can share articles and books of interest on a variety of topics. I will be writing Top 10 lists specifically for this page and hope that you will come back often to read about the exciting and innovative things that are happening on the Kent Place campus. Be sure to follow us on social media, as we will let people know when a new Top 10 list is generated.

List of 11 items.
