What Our Students Are Saying
“I wish I could go back and meet everybody again. I would love that chance. I don’t even remember how I did that…it just happens. You just suddenly know everyone.”
—Kellie S. ’21
“Kents Hill is like a family. Coming from a francophone, North America people are always in a bubble, they don’t say hi when you pass by them. When I came to Kents Hill to visit people were like ‘Hey! Do you want to come to Kents Hill?’ and I was shocked, but I was shocked in a good way because I was not used to that. That’s what made me want to come to Kents Hill.”
—Manu R. '21
“I was homeschooled up until eighth grade and I was at home doing homework with my siblings. We toured a couple of schools before Kents Hill, but none of them had a community feeling. It just felt like empty hallways, moving from class to class, but when we came to Kents Hill, going on tours with the students, it was a whole different feel. It was like a big family.”
