    My 3 children have been at 3 other schools with in the last 2 years and Kingsley has been the best to meet my kids' needs. The Principal has been a big help to me as well as the teachers. This school gets an A+ from my family. a happy parent

    Needs to work harder teaching the basics to children instead of teaching toward a testing program.

    I had 3 of my boys go through Kingsley. They are all professional now. Kingsley is the best school in the area for academics and the most caring teachers. The Principal has always been available for parents and students. The school is great!

    I have had 3 children go through Kingsley and I think it is a wonderful school. The principal is wonderful with the children and she really cares about them. Every time I have questioned her about the policy she seems very knowledgable. I have talked with different staff members and they all seem very happy with the school. The school is well maintained and everyone there seems to care deeply about the well being of the children.

    The principal of this school does not care about her students. She does not know the School Board policies or she lied to me. She does not deserve to be the leader of children.
