"Cheaper - with a few good neighborhoods"
Kent is a great place to live if you find the right area. Some neighborhoods aren’t that nice while others are great. Kent gets a bad rap, but it isn’t as bad as people make it out to be. Houses are cheaper so we were able to get a four bedroom so the kids would have their own rooms. We live in White Horse Crossing, which has a great park and a walking trail. The Kids go to Martin Sortun Elementary School. It’s one of the best in Kent. Our oldest son loves it there and his younger sisters will be joining him soon! When they’re older, they’ll go to Kentridge High School, which is in Washington’s top twenty. The only downside to Kent is traffic. My husband commutes to Seattle, which is a big pain. It’s a terrible drive so he takes the Sounder. It’s much faster than the bus and less stressful than driving.
