My son has been at Kingsley for 5 years and we could not be happier. Not only is the school great, but he also does after school, specialty classes, piano lessons and summer camp there. It makes life simple for a working family. The sense of community is amazing with many opportunities to get together with other families throughout the year. The teachers care deeply about the students, while at the same time teaching them independence and ownership of their work.
My family has been a part of the Kingsley community for the past eight years. In addition to providing my family with a supportive and vibrant community (we've met some lifelong friends through this community), I have Kingsley to thank for helping to foster curiosity, the ability to concentrate for long periods of time, independence, and kindness in my two children. The school does a fine job of knowing each child and ensuring the students' social development while maintaining a high level of academic rigor. The teachers are top-notch, committed educators and the benefits of the multi-aged classrooms are numerous.
