Ok. Let's get real here. First, let's look at the scores for Kingston, and the surrounding schools. Or for that matter, let's look at the scores for the entire Mineral Area Schools. Let's see where Kingston stands there. Second, I am a former Kingston student. I have done just fine in Life. One thing I have learned, is to treat people with kindness and respect. Something a lot of schools don't touch. Second, I have two adult children that were students at Kingston. They both have a Master's Degree and are very successful. Schools do what they can, and do better with Parental support. So, the schooling starts at home and continues with the school. Kingston is a good school, and strives to become better, and will accept nothing less year to year. As for the Teachers, they are all Professional and friendly. What more could a Parent ask for...

As an upcoming Senior I'm very proud to be a Kingston Cougar! I enjoy walking through the halls and knowing everyone, it's like we are one big family. We also do great on all our yearly tests. We may not be a big school but being a student athlete I think have a great experience on and off the court. Kingston teaches you to be independant. To get the scouts and scholarship opportunities that others speak of you have to contact the colleges yourself. That shows the college that you are interested in them. It's gets you to start feeling the responsibilities of life. I couldn't even imagine going to another one of the surrounding schools for highschool. I love being a Kingston Cougar!!!!!

Lets get real here. I am a former student of Kingston K-14 and that school district is far from any incarnation of the word good. I'm not sure why a new independent high school was opened in such a small area, there were already two readily equipped, and recognized high schools in the region. The school is located in one of the poorest areas in the state of Missouri, so tax dollars fall short of what income is actually needed by the school. Guess who gets stuck with these short-comings, the students. If your student is athletically gifted, definitely do not allow them to attend this school. They will not receive the proper attention needed to cultivate these gifts into a rewarding collegiate experience, as well as the proper scouting for college athletic scholarships. As for academics, it's hard to score high in standardized testing when the teachers don't care either!!!

Kingston is a great school to grow up in. We might not be a large school or as impressive looking at first sight, but I know from experience how great it is to walk the hall and know everyone's name. Every single aspect of this school improves year by year, and I feel honored to be a Kingston Cougar.

About the tests

The EOC Assessments are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Missouri for each subject. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
