School Notes:

  • Kingsley`s approach to teaching and learning is focused on each child`s individual potential, talents, and level of development - helping children learn in the best way for them. Our primary goal is to educate children as individuals, building on their curiosity and talents and empowering them to succeed socially and academically. For children from Toddler through Sixth Grade, Kingsley offers an individualized education that is geared to the talents and the developmental level of each student. Children who complete our Early Childhood Program excel in elementary school. Our graduating students move on to top public and private schools, and our students perform exceptionally well on standardized tests.
