Kent Island Christian School Reviews
Outstanding Education in a caring Christian environment
Our girls are presently in their third year at Kent Island Christian School. The academic curriculum is outstanding. In addition to the outstanding education, they have nurtured our children's spiritual growth.
My son has been attending KICS since kindergarten and he is now in 5th grade. These 6 years have been wonderful. The teachers begin teaching phonics in kindergarten so when my son took the SAT in 3rd grade his scores showed he was reading at college level. The kindergartners learn to master cursive as well as print in kindergarten also. The school now has a computer lab but what I like about the school is it's old fashion type of teaching/learning, sort of like homeschooling at church. The religion is very strong, mastering memorization is necessary to succeed in this school but once your child does, it will be a tremendous tool to have throughout his/her education even through college. All the kids in the school are wonderful children, respectful and well behaved. Each teacher teaches several grades together in their classrooms. This has worked fine for us and it teaches the kids to learn to work well independently and they are always invited to ask the teacher any questions they may have. The teachers are wonderful, very committed and truly care about the children and their succeess. The principle, Mrs. Wright is just as she presents herself, genuine, committed to the success of the children and the school and is an excellent administrator. The tuition cost for the school is very reasonable. I definitely reccomment this school and trust you won't be disapointed if you enroll your child. I hope this review helps.
The transition to Kent Island Christian School (KICS) has been a wonderful experience for, not only our daughter, but our entire family. Most Christian parents have taught their children about God from an early age; therefore, entrusting their children to educators who share the same values is important. At KICS, good Christian values are taught daily, having a positive influence on the everyday lives of the children. Our family believes that a good Christian School is one which is committed to the truth of God’s word, and applies that to every area of learning.
We feel the staff at KICS constantly demonstrates an unconditional and wholehearted love for God, which is why religion plays such an important role in the daily curriculum. The academic curriculum is rigorous and challenging because it is built on the foundations of biblical truth. Teachers are definitely the most influential role models in a students’ life. That is why the teachers at KICS set high standards and expectations, allowing every student to reach his or her full educational potential.
Since our daughter has been at KICS, we have seen tremendous academic achievement. The small classes allow for individualized attention that she needs. She can’t wait to go to school in the morning, and in the afternoon, she can’t wait to tell us all the new and exciting things that she learned that day. Another thing that puts a smile on our face, are that the children are all so kind and accepting of each other. This is what is taught and expected of them at KICS. We have also seen how our daughter has grown to love the Lord more and more every day. All of these wonderful things have happened because the staff at KICS openly shares their faith in Jesus Christ with each and every student.
We love Kent Island Christian School! The teachers and Staff provide a loving, nurturing environment that enables each student to excel. They support the child’s individual learning ability, whether the child needs al little extra help or if the child needs extra material in order to be more challenged. This school also encourages children to be able to speak in front of large groups, which I feel is an invaluable skill. The students are taught computer skills and music, as well as the academics and the Christian faith is at the very heart of everything. No matter where the students finish their education they will be very well prepared, solely due to the educational foundation they received at Kent Island Christian School.

My granddaughter began with Kindergarten at Kent Island Christian School and is now in 1st grade. It has been an absolutely positive experience for her as well as her family. The small class sizes are extremely beneficial. She has been reading fluently since kindergarten and is now reading as well as any adult. She is also excelling in all of the other subjects. We have a great school at a reasonable cost where the children excel far above the public schools in a Christian environment.
Wonderful learning environment! Small class sizes reap individualized learning experience. Children are exposed to a Christian atmosphere of moral, caring staff, parents and fellow students.
