This school is the best school i have ever sent my child to! she has been here for one year, and she said she had made more friends here than any other school she has been to. She also says that bullies do not "exist" here, that everyone gets along.

The school does very well with few resources. The teachers put in a lot more time than many teachers from more affluent districts to make things work.

Kingston has high standards and expectations for students and staff. Their motto is'expect more and get more.' Students are expected to do their best. It really does show when the MAP testing time is here. Everyone gets excited and proud to show off what they have learned throughout the year. Kingston has a lot of parent involvement and has a wonderful positive climate around the school and throughout the community.

I always thought teachers were supposed to boost the students ability to want to learn, but not this year for my son. He like many other students are being singled out as a 'problem child' and has been told by his teacher that she is going to do every thing she can to get him kicked out. Well that has happened 3 times now since Christmas. And over totally stupid stuff. I don't know where to turn next but you can bet I'm not stopping here. No, my son is not an angel but what child is at this age. I don't think a child should be kicked out of school for spitting a piece of paper in the trash. Do you? Even the counselor has said he's being targeted and I've taken all I'm going to take.
