My kids did really well academically. They were honor students so am sure the teachers do great work but my kids(who are black) were constantly discriminated by non-black kids. This made their experience at the school a difficult one. I felt like the consequences for the kids that were doing this too lenient so it kept happening. It got so out of control, we moved out of the area. I feel the school needs to deal with problem seriously.

I was reluctant to send my son here for Kindergarten because they only received 4 out of 5 stars. I considered driving him to another city for Kindergarten but ended up choosing Kingston. I am so happy I did. Ms. Railsback was the most wonderful teacher we ever could have hoped for his first year of school. There wasn't a day that he did not want to go to school. He learned so much this year and I have seen the wonderful work she does with the children during class time. We moved out of the district with only a few months left in the school year but still drove him to Kingston. I am going to do a transfer so that he will attend next year. It has been a wonderful school so far and I'm looking forward to my other children attending this school in the future.

I really like this school. I like the staff and the fact that they have an after school homework phone number that kids can call up until 10pm and get help with thier homework! This is a great school! Keep up the good work Kingston Elementary!!!!!!

I forgot to add that we have a fairly new principle and vice principle, who are both outstanding. I see them among parents and students EVERY day. I hear them always greeting the children by their names. They both have contacted me right away when I heard concern about something. They are very involved and take great pride of our school. This is a big deal to me, and that why I needed to submit another comment!

All of my children attended Kingston from Kindergarten on until we had to move. I miss it sooo much. The staff and teachers are outstanding. My kids could all read in Kindergarten thanks to Mrs. Ferris and Mrs. Wiersma. Mr. Heywood is an incredible 2nd grade teacher, and I also agree that Mr. Apodaca is out of this world. My kids also loved this school and we never had a problem at all. I highly recommend it to anyone.

All 3 of my children have attended Kingston at one time or another. I have home schooled some years due to lack of teacher cooperation. Those teachers are no longer at Kingston and I think it's safe to say that they currently have an exceptional staff of teachers and office staff. The principal and vice principal really care about their teachers and the students making for an ideal learning environment. I believe that there are plenty of opportunities for parental involvement if parents choose to be involved. They have implemented programs such as FLAIR to help struggling students with their studies. Thank you Kingston.

My son has attended Kingston 3 years now and is currently in 3rd grade. So far I am very please with this school. They have always been helpful and patient with me. My son loves this school and I would reccomend to anyone. I am a parent helper and it really is nice to know what is going on in class and being involved in my son's learning and helping other's along the way. Great Job Kingston!

I was very unsure of this school at first, but my son loves it and they are wonderful staff. I have no regrets about changing my son to this school even though it is an older looking school, they do a great job and have alot to offer.

I believe the principal should be in the public when kids are arriving and leaving and during recess hours to be an example and watch over the area. Keep his many school or district meetings for classtime hours. Some teachers are reluctant to have parent volunteers in the class and dont believe it's appropriate in the older age groups.

I would just like to say that I've been a Kingston mom for 6yrs with my daughter and now my son has gone K-5th. He has had nothing but outstanding teachers but this year is exceptional. His teacher is Mr. Apadaca a new addition to kingston and as a parent I'm glad he came. I give a A+ to the kingston staff.

I have three children who attend kingston. They all are developmentally delayed and have had nothing but trouble with this school. They do not have special education resources in place for a child that is trying to stay in the mainsteam. Principal is fully aware of my concerns and has been no help at all. I had to file a complaint with sacramento before and only then did they cooperate.

I have three children at Kingston this school year and have had an overall good experience all of the 6 years that I have been a Kingston parent. When I did have concerns they were answered and handled with great care. The office staff and teachers have all been wonderful.

The previous comment is an indication of safety issues of which our educators are being faced. Every day there are cases of 'step' parents or parents with shared custody removing children from school without knowledge of the parent with sole custody. Their caution is understandable and necessary. My experience with the administrators and faculty at Kingston Elementary has been favorable. In particular, we had an incident when a teacher over-reacted to horse-play on the playground. I spoke with the principal about the incident, the teacher was spoken to and I received follow-up calls from both. The past two years at Kingston have been great and we are looking forward to a third.
