Curiosity Becomes Knowledge

"How fast does a zucchini grow?" "What's inside a computer?" "Where is Machu Picchu?" "Quelle heure est-il?" Primary School is all about questions — and at Kent Place we're not just interested in the answers, but in the challenge, enrichment and self-awareness that come with learning whom to ask, what and when. Our students learn to code computer games, write poetry, harvest their Three Sisters garden to investigate how different plants work together, and design and build an entire Native American village. Whether they're performing Pucchini, crafting persuasive essays or breeding trout to release into the Passaic River, our girls freely, fully investigate the world around them while discovering the mathematicians, scientists, artists and leaders within.
