Open Quote As my last child graduates this year, I'd have to say the difference with Dr. Potts versus the previous principal is astonishing. I've been a part of Kentlake community for the past six years with my kids and the kids I mentor. Dr. Potts is outstanding - now the challenge going forward for parents, teachers, community, administration and students alike will be to continue the enthusiasm and energy going forward. Kentlake is improving, but the bar must be set higher, which you can repeat for the entire Kent school district. Close Quote

Open Quote Staff not as involved as I have seen in other districts. Maybe its the pay, Kent school district is the lowest paid district in Washington. I see that much parent/ teacher interaction is mostly done by email if at all. Some teachers expect older or second year subject students to help the younger ones. The problem with this is the older students have their own work to do and it is not their responsibility, not to mention they are teens. And the freshmen students most likely don't know the older ones.

On the good note if you AND your child put forth the effort there are an abundance of programs available at Kentlake. From Academics to Sports to Hobbies, you can keep your child very busy. Just stay on your child's studies and monitor the teacher interaction. As a parent if we are not hands on ourselves how can we expect a teacher to be? Close Quote

Open Quote Inept administration, coupled with teacher apathy results in poor student test scores compared to region and state. Compare to Tahoma school district, Bellevue School district and segregation can be extrapolated. This opinion applies to the middle school and high school levels as I have no experience with the elementary schools in this district. Close Quote

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.
