Kentlake High School Ratings & Reviews

December 05, 2017 Submitted by a parent
Both of my kids benefitted from the theater and music programs at Kentlake. Although both graduated a number of years ago and the teachers may not be the same, those programs regularly took prizes in national competition and the statewide 5th Avenue Musical Theater Awards. My daughter's class included several nationally successful recording artists (Daphne loves Derby, Tess Henley) and both of my kids went to top private schools with scholarships as did a number of their classmates. The main negative was that colleges on the East Coast look at weighted scores (WA didn't weight for AP courses) and the school year ends later than most meaning that year-end honors aren't available until long after most districts have finished. Not the fault of the school but the state which wants scholars to stay in WA even when they can get into top schools elsewhere.

Kentlake is an excellent school that has shown much improvement over the last five or six years. The new administration (with Dr. Potts) has done a great job. On average, the staff and teachers are very nice and helpful. I think the only real issue with this school is some of its students. But hey, it's a public school, you're going to have a few misbehaved students here and there. Overall great school.

Dr. Potts has really turned this building around, attitude-wise. The population has decreased to under 1400 which also helps. Students at Kentlake have finally taken a sense of pride in their school; they are more empathetic and caring than 4 years ago, and are more likely to get involved beyond 2:30pm. Bringing in Dr. Potts 5 years ago has turned this school from the least pleasant high school in the district to a school that is among the best to be at. Academic rigor has been stressed, and most students have an Honors, AP, or UW level class because the staff has made it a priority to encourage students to reach farther than they're used to. The school itself even paid for the SAT and PSAT to be taken by all seniors and juniors the past two years. The only thing which has worsened is the school's athletic records and, when your school loses 400-500 kids in 4 years, that's to be expected. The teams all play with a bit of a chip on their shoulders, which is understandable when you're a 2A-size school playing in a 4A league. They're a scrappy bunch with a lot of pluck, some great teachers, a lot of good kids, and the school truly gets better year after year.

Reading another comment, I strongly agree. Many KL teachers would make you believe if you didn't make one deadline on a project you might as well give up and fail the project or even the class. I transferred my senior year not only because teachers were unhelpful, but also because the students really were allowed to be defiant and outright rude to faculty and other students with little or no punishment. (I even witness students cuss at teachers with no repercussions) Also - SERIOUS drug problem. Students smoke and drink and get high on pills at school and almost never get caught.

I've taught at 12 of the 13 secondary schools in the Kent District, and of those 12, Kentlake is the only one with a serious attitude problem. The kids there act like they run the school, because they do. They have more power than the adults because the school is run so weakly. Example: I was talking to a security guard who said that security there never takes phones away from students by force. He said it could injure the student and that the students must be tiptoed around. Neither the adults nor students seem to realize its supposed to be the other way around. The result is a rude, defiant, dishonest student body despite their not being that way at the feeder middle schools. Test scores are OK, although they'd be higher if students cared and did their work honestly. Easily my least favorite school in the district since I love the other Kent schools.
