I have pulled my three children from this school because of countless problems. While I belive Mr. Tighe has tried more so than any other principal in the past 4 years, I feel, overall, the district needs to renovate itself in its entirety. My children were expected to act like adults while the adults acted as children. There are a few great teachers at Kingswood, but those same few cannot overcome the schools multitude of problems! 'Dr.' Seck needs to take a look at some of the 'top ranking' districts and actually implement some of their successful practices.
My child is learns in a different style that the norm, the teachers would not or could not assist instead the school councellor advised me that he may be ADD, which he is not. The environment is not condusive to anything outside the average childs educational need and the school doesn't provide its teachers with aides to assist in its over stuffed classrooms which contributes to both teacher and childs frustration. The teacher of my childs class had 2 kindergarten classes of at least 22 children each.
Communication needs to be improved. The upper grade section needs a lot of work. There are some great teachers and staff there, but then there are some not great ones.
