Kingsway Elementary School was my Elementary School for 6 years. I think that Kingsway really tries to make school fun for kids, from the 'award ceremonies' to the school socials. Kingsway also does a 5th grade 'graduation', or, promotion, as Kingsway calls it. During summer break, KES participates in the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge. At the beginning of the next school year, they give out prizes if they have read enough minutes. They also participate in the Sunshine State Young Readers Challenge. And they give out prizes to. KES really encourages kids to read! Recently, (to my knowledge), KES recently started teaching Pre-K. Even though KES has some strict teachers, none are mean. KES also cares about their students, and they really try to prove it.

My school is bad because of some strict teachers like mrs.santagota and it turns out that the school's leadership is too far

KES has an amazing staff and and awesome students. KES strives to prepare students not only to be successful in fulfilling their educational requirements to pass into the next grade, but to be successful citizens in life. Their support to keep arts central in learning is key to understanding that many of the students who participate in such programs are students who high performers both in and outside the classroom. KES reaches out to the community to plug in wherever possible to be a positive beacon to the society in which we live and work. KES loves their students, families, and staff members and it shows.

Best Elementary School Principal in our county. She is very resourceful and is very connected to our community. Networks well with organizations in our area to help her children be the best that they can be.

This is my third child to attend Kingsway Elementary (2007). We have been very pleased for the most part. Barring a few run-ins with a couple of teachers (you can't expect Utopia), our kids have been happy here and we've been satsified. We recently got a new principle (Lori Davis) last year, and she seems to love her job. I was impressed that she remembered my youngest was going into K, and remembered my other kids names without being reminded. Parent volunteering is always encouraged, especially as Kingsway has many special events like Book Fair, field trips, and the end of the year 'Cougar Carnival'. They've recently restructured the territory, so if you live outside that area, you're child will probably not be considered for enrollment. Call the office to check. We recommend this school heartily!

Excellent school, enthusiastic teachers. Parent involvement is always encouraged and supported. Secure parent pick up, with any special instructions cleared only through office personnel. Last 5 years have have zero abduction incidents and one or two minor student altercations. All grades receive quarterly rewards for perfect attendance, reading skills, the 'Giant Step' award for best improvement, and the 'Cougar Pride' award, which goes to the student that shows exemplary curteouness and behavior towards others. Kids alaso receive gift certificates to participating restaurants with their awards. Nancy Craw, the school's principal, keeps in touch with parents by using a new automated system that phone your house and plays a prerecorded message with any details parents need to know about. Teachers are great at keeping in contact with parents when your child needs extra help. We love Kingsway- it's one of the areas most popular schools.

My son, attended Kingsway for 6 years. (k-5th) He has grown from my little baby into quite the little man. He enjoyed his time at Kingswayand will have many fond memories of friends, teachers, and staff. He has been an A student there his entire time, and I believe that the teachers he has had are all wonderful, and excellent people, and all have touched our lives. Mrs Bohlander was the principal there for the first few years. She was a great blessing to the school, and is definetly missed. Mrs. Crawl is now the principal. She made alot of changes, some I think too drastic, but hey! She's the boss! Over all it's a great school, with great a staff. Thanks Kingsway for everything.

My daughter is a student at KWE. I am very pleased with her progress. She's in the Kindergarten and looks forward to going to school. That's a plus itself. Her teacher Mrs. Hodge is wonderful and outstanding. I am very much pleased. I don't get to participate like I want to. I have 2 other kids and I also work full time. Thanks kingsway for taking care of my little girl.
