My child has been at kingwood for about 8 years. Back then it was a terrific school. But last year we noticed she was falling behind significantly in math. She used to be very good at math. But when she got a new middle school math teacher last year, she kept complaining that she would not help her. I am considering putting her in public school.

Kingwood is such an incredible school! I have two children there and my third will be starting K next year. The teachers care so much about the kids and it is small and close knit that we almost feel like family. The principal knows my kids and makes an effort to know the names of everyone in the elementary school. The staff is amazing as well. My kids will continue to go to KCS until they graduate! Very, very highly recommended

We have 3 children at KCS. Our kids all started in preschool with Kingwood. We currently have one in 10th, 7th and 3rd grade. Absolutely love the school, teachers, students and Christian environment.!

I am a teacher for a public school system but my son goes to Kingwood. We placed him at KCS for the academics and the students. The students are kind to each other, I know that this is taught in school and at home but the students seem to enjoy each other in the elementary school. We have also been very grateful for the Christian values presented and practiced in the school, at the football games, and at PTO meetings. We have also been pleased with the academics-he is functioning about 1/2 a year AHEAD of a public school classroom. We love it and can not say enough good things about the school, teachers, staff, and principal.

My daughter currently attends Kingwood Christian School. She is only in the second grade, but has already experienced the incredible way this private school treats their students. From day one, when she entered Kindergarden, the teachers have gone above and beyond to make sure she is on track and have been wonderful about keeping me and her Dad informed. The only "bad" thing I can think of is that one of her teachers from first grade was slightly unsatisfactory, but the very next year, this teacher was no longer teaching there. We just last year have a new principal who is absolutely wonderful. I feel very confident that my daughter will receive the best education at this school. Her brother is currently enrolled at the Kingwood Christian Child Development Center (daycare), and will move forward to join his sister at Kingwood School. I just can not praise this school enough! Thank you, teachers and staff, for all you do each day! Oh, the summer fun program is incredible too. It is a "camp" where the kids go on field trips and play, but also have the opportunity for summer enrichment with tutors. Thank you, thank you, Kingwood!!! Go Lions!!!!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
