    "I went to school here when I was younger and had such a great experience. After graduating in the top 5% of Auburn University I wanted to come back to the place that made me love learning. I now teach here. It is an outstanding school."

    "I have two sons at Hall Kent and can say without hesitation that it is a treasure. Going into our fifth year at the school, my children have had contact with most of the staff; I can report that across the board, the quality of teaching is top-notch. The culture of the school celebrates every child's uniqueness and bullying is not tolerated. Don't be discouraged by the great school's rating on this site. Out of the three Homewood elementary schools, Hall Kent houses the special needs preschool and successfully mainstreams many children with developmental delays. They have a full staff of speech and language, as well as reading specialists. While this may bring the overall testing score down, it makes for a beautifully diverse and accepting atmosphere. The gifted teacher is second to none; many parents who consider moving elsewhere in the district do not so as to keep their child with our amazing enrichment teacher. Physical fitness is encouraged and the cafeteria serves a progressive menu (whole wheat breads, brown rice, etc). Hall Kent is truly a little-known gem in Homewood."

    "This school is great! There is great parental involvement for every grade level. The students are well-rounded. The teachers have an open door policy. You can contact them any time via email and they respond very promptly. They send parents emails when there is a concern about a child, they send notes home to parents on a regular basis of each child's strength and weakness. The principal has set everything in place for the school to run like a well-oiled machine even in her absence. The assistant principal and staff operate effectively and efficiently from car pool to before & after school activities to preparing for tests. There is no area lacking; the utmost attention and care has been taken to ensure that our children get the best education!"

    "Hall Kent is the best school! I have two daughters one in first grade and another in the pre-school program. The teachers are excellant. They work non-stop year round. My daughters kindergarten teacher would email me weekly updates, even called during the summer to offer some extra summer homework..lol...You truly will not find a better elementary school in the state of Alabama. Homewood Schools are the BEST! Hall Kent is worth every tax dollar we spend and more."
