    I have a daughter who just graduated 5th grade and another daughter who just graduated kindergarten at Geneva Kent. I absolutely love this school and the staff. I hate to see Mrs. Faller retire she is a wonderful principal. I am grateful for the quality years my girls have spent and will continue to spend at Geneva Kent! Stacey Rowe Shannon and Halley's Mom

    I am a mother of a 3rd Grader. Brandon Brown. He has attended Geneva Kent since kindergarden. I love this school. They have great and caring teachers. My hat is off to Mrs. Vickie Smith one of the greatest teachers to teach a classroom. She is caring and determined that the children get the advantage that their education offers. The Principal Mrs. Goodson is wonderful. I have lived in Huntingon for 6 years and had plans to move to Florida. I reconsidered knowing it is almost impossible to find a school that is as exceptional as Geneva Kent. My son 'Ducky' loves it and excels. I am proud of him and grateful to the teachers and their commitment to education. Sincerly Carmen R. Brown-Pryor
