To the student who says there is too much of a budget cut: In business we also have cuts. But we have Cost Cutting too. That is where someone works out how to save enough costs or expenses to offset the budget cut. I expect this is unheard of in public schools so you might find lots of expenses to cut if you look a little. At one company I found $250,000 in expenses to cut and I learned some interesting things. My cost cutting idea was first of all a lot fun. Second it amounted to more than the profit of that company for an entire year. So, thirdly, costs cut are just the same as profit for businesses, just like Cash. I expect you might have your attention on one budget item. Why don't you get a few friends together, say a group of 10. Then work out how you can do what you want with the budget you have, by doing some 'cost cuts'. Make it a game. Have fun with it. This is a skill that is most valuable in the Real World. Believe me. I am here. - A Community member.

This school does not care about the students at all. They are only concerned about their name and rank in the state.

As a graduate of this school, I believed my children would be best served here. My children are part of the open enrollment program, they have been for over 6 years, and now we are moving back into the area to keep them there (their choice). All schools have problems with clicks and popularity; but I think it is becoming a larger and potentially uncontrolled problem for this school. My child is almost "bullied" as a Freshman because of rank. I also believe that some extra curricular activities are currently being placed before academics; this was obvious to me the other day as my child spent almost 14 hours at the school for one activity (and classes). Overall, I love this school, but I'm beginning to question the methods of its education.

My daughter began her school career and currently remains enrolled at Kingsley. I believe wholeheartedly that my daughter is getting the best education possible considering the public school system. My daughter is a school of choice student and I am so thankful for Kingsley. 97% of their staff are absolutely awesome!

I am concerned that this school puts to much emphasis on sports and not enough emphasis on academia for our children. This year they cut elementary art and a social worker for the high school even though they had a balanced budget. How many of the children in emotional crisis in the high school will suffer for this decision. It looks like money means more than children.
