Kingsley Vision Statement

The ideal Kingsley School is one where an atmosphere of safety and order help foster the belief among students that they are accepted for who they are personally, emotionally and academically. The school is an exciting and dynamic place where staff and students feel secure, comfortable, and self-confident in their roles.

Teachers, in numbers sufficient to provide quality instruction, are assisted in continually refining and updating their skills and the school's curriculum through the availability of continuing education, staff development, and in service. State-of-the-art technology, and adequate supplies and materials assist with instruction and student learning.

Students take an active part in their education, both academic and personal, and in the process become responsible, resourceful, lifelong learners. Through ongoing assessment, they are continually aware of the expectations for their educational development. Parents of students and the community at large have a serious and prideful involvement in the school that has a direct effect on student achievement.

To the extent that Kingsley School is this, we recognize the need to maintain these high standards. To the extent that it is not, we dedicate ourselves to these goals.
