For me, it was a place to learn and leave. I would choose this school any day because of the diversity of staff and students which provides learning experiences of its own.

The thing that makes East Kentwood High School so unique is the fact that it has a huge foreign population who bring lots of globe and world life experience that shapes the culture of the school.
