My son has attended Kingsley for 3 years now. I believe Kingsley is an excellent school! They have hard working teachers, a lot of parent involvement and the support staff is second to none! Best school in District 203 by far.
With regards to the last review where the parent said that they are 'constantly asking for money'...I don't see that at all. They have fundraisers, as all schools do, and I have NEVER been asked to pay ANY money to see my children's winter program. I have a 5th grader and a kindergartener so I've been with the school for some time already. I have friends who's children go to a Catholic school nearby and they have told me that they are always being asked for money when they are already paying a lot of money for tuition. The teachers are excellent and my children have been very happy here.
I am new to Kingsley school. The academics seem to be fine. Even though this is a public school, they are constantly asking for money. I was surprised to find out I have to pay to watch my child's winter program. I find it hard to believe they need so much extra money when there are private schools that function with much less funding per student.
Excellent academic quality, focus on overall development and best in class teaching staff. The teachers here are highly experienced, and extremely motivated in providing the best education. Parent involvement is high and encouraged. Our children really blossomed and accelerated in this great friendly learning environment.
My three children really enjoy going to Kingsley Elementary. I have a 4th, 3rd, and 1st grader. The teachers are excellent and parental involvement is very high. I enjoy helping out in the childrens classrooms and extracurricular activities. I would definately recommend this school.
