    Kenston Forest is an excellent school! It has a close-knit family atmosphere. Teachers and administration know the children personally are quick to offer individual guidance. The atmosphere is conducive to learning and my children are encouraged to become upstanding citizens. The values we teach at home (faith in God respect and loyalty) are reinforced at every grade level.

    the school is a waste of time energy and resources. better off in a public school. they tend to judge a book by it's cover if you know what i mean.

    I go there and i think it is a great school. We have a resource every day. The teachers are nice and treat every kid the same. I think it is the best school ever!

    Kenston offers a well-rounded academia including band and art dual-enrollment classes which allow college credits. Classes are small with teaching staff dedicated to encouraging and supporting each child's success. Athletics are available for those interested in basketball football volleyball soccer baseball softball tennis golf and cheerleading. Sportsmanship and fairness are stressed. Community service is required of high school students each year. I love this school and feel that my children are safe encouraged and challenged!!

    The school is obsessed with its athletic program and has languishing academics and an almost nonexistant arts program. If you're a sports nut go here. Otherwise you'll get a much more well-rounded education elsewhere.
