How is it that other sites like School Digger have Kingsley rated much much higher? Out of 1233 Elementary Schools in Georgia, Kingsley is ranked 308. Kingsley is in the top 75% of schools in the state in achievement. This rating is a poor representation of the school, it's teachers and achievement. You're basically just rating on one measure, the CCRPI score....those are available on the state's website.
I can't say enough positives about Kingsley. Big shout outs to Colanino, Gonzalez, Rivas, Craven, and Glenn. They are incredible teachers who have inspired and engaged my children all year long! We are all so thankful for them :-)
Both of my children have thrived at Kingsley and I could not be happier with the education they received. I am so thankful for the outstanding teachers they have had throughout the years. Kingsley is our home and you cannot judge this school by how it looks on paper.
I’m not sure why the scores are so low. My oldest was there from kindergarten through fifth grade and our experience was great. I have a child there now in Pre-K. He is special needs and I’ve found the teachers, the principals and counselors there to be very responsive to his needs. I love that it’s a small neighborhood school and the staff there is very enthusiastic and the parent participation is excellent.
We have a acroymn the students use called PRIDE which sum up integrity, fairness and honesty. The students earn comet cash based on their performance against the PRIDE model. They all know it and love it.
