Kent City Public Schools
Strong Schools, Strong Communities
Kent City Community Schools is large enough to offer a comprehensive academic program and a wide variety of extra-curricular activities, while still small enough to maintain small class sizes and individual attention and support for our students. Our devoted teachers, administrators and support staff take a very personal approach to educating students at every level. We encourage parents and community members to join us as we guide our students toward their peak potential. Strengthening our schools strengthens our future workforce, helping develop talent right here in our district. The students and staff in Kent City Community Schools are grateful to our voters for approving the Strong Schools, Strong Communities millage, which we are putting to good use for students.
To provide a nurturing learning environment and educate all students to be lifelong learners
We help students consider and connect with possible careers, build the skills expected in the workplace and learn about options after graduation, including college, technical training or going directly into the workforce. We offer career and technical coursework through Kent Career Tech Center.
Academics and Beyond
Strong academics are the basis for all of K-12 learning, beginning with literacy, mathematics, science, social studies. In addition to these areas, we engage students with a wide range of courses including College for credit classes through GRCC and after-school opportunities ranging from literacy and reading help to enrichment activities.
Early childhood is a crucial time in children’s lives – when they engage in the world around them and learn all the basics they’ll use in school and beyond. Our Great Start Readiness Preschool classrooms help children prepare for school success.
Support for Students
Most students will need a little help at some point in their schooling. They might struggle with a particular subject, an assignment, or a life challenge for themselves or their family. We work hard to support students so they succeed, including hiring the best staff to assist them. In addition, we have both student services staff, school social workers and behavioral interventionists to work with our students.
