Celebrating Student Success
Your Dream is Our Dream is an initiative of Kent ISD and its member districts to showcase student success stories at every step of the education journey in our schools and unique programs. It features interviews with and stories of students who are succeeding at every level from early childhood programs to pre-K, K-12, Adult Ed, Special Ed and Center Programs, along with the educators who are helping them reach their dreams and goals. When our students succeed, we all succeed.
