    The teachers and staff at this school are just wonderful. You walk in and they are happy with smiles on their faces. My son is learning so much in just the 3 weeks he has been there. I am so proud to call Kingston Hill Academy his elementary school.

    Lots of great teachers at the school but a second grade teacher once referred to my child as "colored." Her occassional bad grammar I can look past but not that.

    I have one child at this school and have been very happy. The teachers are great everyone knows you and your child. I know she is well taken care of each and every day while at school. She comes home happy healthy and having had learned a ton and had a fun/exciting day. She loves school her teachers and all the studnets a great place to be!

    This school is absolutely great for personalized learning. The small group instruction in math and reading has helped my child a great deal. The school has struggled a little bit with its curriculum but the new principal seems to be on target in getting things on track. This school is a very special place!
