Kent Island High School (KIHS) is a public high school in Stevensville, Maryland that first opened in 1998 to accommodate the growing population of Queen Anne's County. The school takes its name from Kent Island, the location of the school (and the entire census-designated place of Stevensville).

The school is often seen as the successor to Stevensville High School, which closed in 1966, and was renovated and reopened as Stevensville Middle School. The two schools have similar school colors and mascots (SHS's colors and mascot were blue and gold and the Pirates, compared to blue and silver and the Buccaneers of KIHS). Between 1966 and 1998, residents of Kent Island attended Queen Anne's County High School, with which KIHS now shares a sports rivalry.

Grades 10-12 are located at Kent Island High School, while 9th graders who would otherwise attend the high school instead attend at an anal of the high school located at Matapeake Middle School.

A common rumor exists that the school was intentionally designed to resemble a ship when viewed from above, in honor of Kent Island's rich Chesapeake Bay heritage. However, the resemblance to a ship is not obvious to the observer at first and is more likely a coincidence.

Kent Island High School's sports teams are members of the Bayside conference and 2A East region in Maryland where they have garnered multiple conference and regional championships as well as team state championships in dance, baseball, field hockey, and lacrosse. Kent Island has also had individual state champions in swimming, track and field, and wrestling.


A fire broke out in a boys' bathroom at Kent Island High School on 26 September 2012.[1] Nearly twenty-five volunteer firefighters, of the Kent Island Volunteer Fire Company, responded to the blaze; a police investigation valued damages to approximately $5,000.[2]
