Kent County High School
Welcome to KCHS!

After serving as the Assistant Principal last year, I am overjoyed to be named the new principal of Kent County High School. Kent County High School has been blessed with so many successes, and it is the focus and determination of our administrative team to build upon the great foundation of excellence. I firmly believe that every student can achieve academic success and that our wonderful staff is more than capable of helping each student reach new heights. A great school is the bedrock of a healthy community and I hope to forge new relationships with the community and with business leaders to add to and enrich our students' educational experience. I am also a strong advocate of robust Career and Technical Programs of Study that provide our students with high quality skills and industry recognized credentials. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, and we look forward to a prosperous school year.

Congratulations Mallory!!!

Mallory Helfenbein of Chestertown, a sophomore at Kent County High School was selected by her school to attend the 39th annual Hugh O’Brian Youth Maryland Leadership Seminar. Each year 1 student from each high school across the country is chosen to represent their school at their respective state’s program. 

The four-day seminar brought together a select group of students (HOBY Ambassadors) to interact with leaders in business, governmental and educational arenas to discuss relevant present and future issues.

The goal is to provide a stimulating forum for HOBY Ambassadors to learn more about the American incentive system and the democratic process, while gaining a broader understanding of their leadership potential and quest for self-development.
Mallory is the daughter of Kirk and Chrissy Helfenbein.
