Open Quote My daughter has been a student here at Kent Hills Elementary since kindergarten,she is now in fifth grade.Over the years I've watched the school decline.I've seen some good teachers get let go.The conditions of the playground are disgusting which always seems to be littered with trash&bags of dog poop.There is no math tutors for children in fifth grade.The school has gone down hill since Mr.Rodgers,their principal took over.I would never recommend Kent Hills Elementary School to anyone.

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
