“The hunter high school admission prep at Kent brought to light a new aspect of test prep for me: community. For the first time, I didn’t feel the need to compete with the other students there. By the time results were released, I felt comforted that even if I didn’t get in, the friends that I had made there made my experience at Kent worthwhile. With that in mind, I was ecstatic to hear that 7 of my friends that I had made at Kent were accepted as well as me. The collective acceptance enabled my experience at Hunter to be far more enjoyable than I would have imagined, and I recommend that you should apply to Hunter as well.”
