Kingswood Academy is a great school where parents are involved as the primary educators. It promotes an environment of community and family.

Kingswood Academy has been a blessing. My son began PK-3 last fall and loved it. The teachers are dedicated to not only educating but also to the character building of each student. The parent involvement is always welcomed and everyone is dedicated to making Kingswood Academy shine above the rest.

A board member changes the report card grade of their daughter and re-issues a new report card because they didn't "like" the grade she received. This undermines all teachers, undermines the mission of strong academics, and undermines the "character education" program. What does it teach that child?
