To insure appropriate tone and content, we require each author to adhere to the following guidelines:

Be:

Honest
Thoughtful
Consider the review questions
Appropriate in tone; criticism is appropriate; bashing and ranting is not
Limit your review to only your experience
Well written with good spelling and punctuation

Avoid:

Personal Attack
Institutional Disparagement
Opinion presented at fact
Any false information
Using or disclosing your personal information

Examples of inappropriate comments include but are not limited to any writing that seems libelous, defamatory, indecent, vulgar or obscene, pornographic, sexually explicit or sexually suggestive, racially, culturally, or ethnically offensive, harmful, harassing, intimidating, threatening, hateful, objectionable, discriminatory, or abusive, or which may or may appear to impersonate anyone else.

AdmissionsQuest will not post any statement containing a threat of violence against a person or any other remark that would tend to be seen as intimidating or intends to harm someone. AdmissionsQuest maintains final editorial control over all submitted reviews. Reviews must evince appropriate tone and content.

    Please share a few thoughts about your experiences with Kents Hill School: Kents Hill truly helped shaped me into the young woman I am today. I came in as a very quiet and naive girl. And while I am still naive in many ways, I am a little bit smarter and bit wiser than when I entered. And that was because I had amazing friends and teachers who took the time to know me and who had my best interest in mind. I can only hope that I reciprocated that same kindness.

    I will forever be indebted to this school and I love it with all my heart.

    Please share a few thoughts about your experiences with Kents Hill School: Attending Kents Hill School, was one of the best experiences of my life. I made great friends that I plan to keep in touch with throughout my life, and I was supported by the amazing faculty and staff that truly had my best interest at hand. It is a very special place that I am glad to say I was apart of and glad to be an Alum of a great institution.
