Vision and Mission

Kentwood Vision

We believe all children can learn and grow to succeed as safe, responsible, and respectful members of our diverse and inclusive community.


Kentwood Mission

Our mission is to foster a diverse and inclusive Kentwood Community that:

  • Honors all perspectives, cultures, and voices while ensuring students see themselves in every aspect of learning.

  • Invests in the whole child, including a student’s social-emotional well-being and academic success.

  • Encourages students to take risks and advocate for themselves and others in a safe, welcoming, and collaborative environment.

  • Embraces the idea that conflict can be solved through reflection, empathy, dialogue, and ownership of one's actions.

  • Cultivates positive, meaningful, lasting relationships between students, families, caregivers, teachers, and staff.
