    This is the 4th year my son has attended Kingswood. The teacher's and principal work hard to make sure all students are learning and if any happen to be behind they do whatever possible to help them get where they need to be. I really like Kingswood and I'm confident in knowing my son is getting a great education. Thank You Kingswood!

    Kingswood I believe shows great committment to its students. They have a monthly family day and the principal keeps us updated on things via voice messages and even emails. Teachers are great and they have an after school program that makes it convenient to parents.

    My child is in her second year here at Kingswood. We have been lucky to have really great teachers so far. The teachers are very committed to giving the children the best chance possible. However with budget cuts this year five teachers will be laid off. The class sizes will increase from 24-25 students to 34-35 students per classroom. This couldn't be happening at a worse time considering the district has made Kingswood a K-8 school. Next year we will have our first 8th grade class meaning the student population will increase and the staff will decrease. As a parent who is on the campus daily with my child I can see that there is not enough space to accommodate the student currently there so I'm not too sure what will happen next year with more students. The saving grace in that school are the teachers and I am very sad that we will be losing five.

    As a volunteer teaching assistant I can attest to the fact that Kingswood offers a fine primary school program for the students of our Citrus Heights community. Students arrive on time every day and are eager to enter the classroom to start a focused day of learning!

    This is a good school but next year 2005-2006 students will have to wear uniforms. This school is strict but that makes it a better learning environment. Example-Students in the morning when they get to school must walk in a large circle like a waagon train instead of running around getting in trouble on playground. I really don't agree with that but they say it helps to when students get in class they are not all hyper.

    I am impressed with Kingswood and the great support of staff in trying to best meet the needs of all students. Collaboration among teachers is a priority as well as training so teachers can differentiate their instruction. Parent involvement is up over the last 3 years by over 60%. I have found the staff for the most part very welcoming to parents and very supportive of family nights Kingswood sponsors. Teaching is a public act I have found that to be true at Kingswood where most teachers have no problem with parents observing and helping in the classroom. The Achievement Gap has closed since 2000. The real tragedy is that Kingswood has been sanctioned on technicalities. How many schools in the state have a score of close to 700 with sanctions? Interesting that as a 'low performing' school we were asked to apply for California Distinguished School Award.

    I have had 1 year experience with Kindergarten at kingswood and although we were initially happy with the school our son is not achieving well (he is distractable) partially we believe as a result of 1 or 2 other students disrupting the class. He initially loved school but now dosn't really want to go. Kindergartners that already could read and have no attention problems are doing fine in his class although children that started out behind are having difficulty learning the basics and catching up to the high expectations of being able to read and write full sentences by the end of kindergarten.

    I am very sad to see my kids enter into another school district. Kingswood became more than just a place to send the kids to learn they all became a part of our family. Dr. Liddell Mrs Louch Mrs MCaully Mrs Ciraulo went above and beyond always interested not only in the children in school but also after. With them I felt the children were doing and becoming excalty what they were supposed to. I always knew they were in good hands! Thanks to all of you!! We will miss you. The Hollibaugh gang

    My son transferred to Kingswood from a private catholic school when he was in Kindergarten. He has remained at Kingswood and will be in the 2nd grade in the Fall 2003. The principal at Kingswood is very dedicated to the school teachers and students. She is a very strong advocate for funding parent involvement and continuing education. The school is very clean and modern. It is a safe school and the staff keep close eyes on the children at all times. Academically the children work very hard and sometimes have a disproportionate large amount of homework (but I've found this to be teacher-specific). The school also has Discovery Club extension for before and after-school care lending itself to contiguous education and childcare all in one. I am extremely proud to have my son attend Kingswood Elementary!
