    "I go to Kent Middle School at the moment, and this year and throughout the years, its been horrible. The kids are snobby and all teachers except for a few (Mrs. Ward and a couple others understand) don't understand what the children are going through. For example, I have after school activities that take up most of the day, and the homework that the teachers assign will keep me up too at least 11:00, which is an hour past my bed time. What the teachers don't understand is that we have lives outside of school, and we don't have time to spend an hour on math and an hour on science both, with another hour and a half of history, language arts, and spanish combined. I honestly believe that the academics are great at this school, they get you ready for highschool, but with the social pressures and excessive amount of homework it makes it hard to focus. I wake up before 7:00 every day, and going to bed late because of homework doesn't make my mornings any brighter. Children my age are supposed to get 8-9 hours of sleep every night, but at Kent Middle School, that won't happen. You'll be getting 6-7 hours. Back on the topic of the snobby kids, they gossip like CRAZY. Don't trust anyone."

    "Unbelievable principal and assistant principal set the tone for an incredible middle school experience. Wonderful transition provided from 4th to 5th (elementary school 5th grade experience but on the middle school campus) and from 5th to 6th ("real" middle school with lockers, changing classes, electives, etc.). Extremely involved parent community, outstanding PTA, and tireless KIK Foundation that provide a "private" school enrichment experience at a public school. Most teachers not living in the District petition to have their own children attend Bacich and Kent. Programs like Mathletes, Archery, Robotics, Mural Design, Project Fashion Runway, and an amazing Student Activities teacher round out the experience for all ages. Nothing better in all of Marin, public or private."

    "Kent is over-rated and on the decline. Generally, good kids at the school, but the administration is poor and pays lip service only to parent's concerns and feedback. There are a few very good teachers, but on average the teachers are adequate only, comfortable in their tenure and coasting. Many teachers are rude to their students, and the quality of the curriculum is declining quickly. The math program in particular is weak and getting worse. We had teachers tell us they couldn't help our children because they were too busy with their private tutoring practice class outside of class hours."

    "Beware, Kent middle school is poorly run by staff. The principal is stuck up, when I told him where I had plans of going to highschool (redwood) he laughed. The school generally takes the side of the accuser (when a student conflict), and nourishes that person like a baby. Much like Redwood high school, the teachers are overrated and take little kindness in the students outside activities. Forget what the parents are saying, I was a student and I went there. The rules are outrageous, detentions are given out for simply holding a basketball in the library. Pressure is overly high on kids to do well (think about it, its only middle school!) which takes away the fun of actually learning. You might ignore the only one star this school has, but Kent middle isn't a smart choice for your kids. I wouldn't be writing this much if it was... Just prepare yourself and your kid for an unenjoyable time. God bless you."
