The mission of Kingswood Pre K-8, a premier school of academic excellence, science, and technology, is to engage all students in a dynamic education and inspire them to become 21st century learners and successful members of our society through innovative, student-focused instruction in a safe, collaborative, and caring environment in partnership with our families and diverse community.
We work to achieve this mission through a focused, well balanced educational approach to learning. Our entire community is committed to lifelong learning. We use frequent ongoing formative assessments and end of unit summative assessments to guide students’ progress and monitor the instructional program.
We ensure an orderly atmosphere that is conducive to learning in every classroom. All members of the school community are treated with respect. We encourage our parents to be involved with the school and their child’s educational experience.
