12 Parent Reviews for Kent Place School

I agree with an earlier post regarding the very narrow "box" into which Kent Place expects its students to fit, in spite of the claims about nurturing creativity and individuality. The administration is not supportive of girls who fail to fit the mold, and if they struggle or encounter emotional difficulties ...  Read more

My daughter recently joined Kent Place. I am very happy with the school. Focus on Personality Development: The school wants to develop the child's personality so that they can be effective leaders as they grow older.

Fantastic school for girls! Excellent curriculum and leadership from preschool through high school. The faculty is caring and willing to meet the various needs of students. KPS is the only secular all-girls school in NJ, and fills a real need. Great place!

I am a senior at this school, and I can honestly say I loved almost every moment of my high school experience in Kent Place. Middle school was not the best because I had a hard time adusting to the Kent Place culture. The people here are all friendly and always have each other's best interest. They are ...  Read more
