Kingsbury Country Day School Ratings & Reviews
Traditional testing is done, MSTEP & NWEA, but Kingsbury values students as individuals. Each student's growth is assessed by a real live teacher -- not a computer-based, one-size-fits-all standardized test. The Kingsbury Way is about instilling a sense of altruism and other core virtues that are key to the development of the WHOLE child. Academics is approached through inquiry-based learning which instills confidence and builds soft skills (collaboration, problem solving, adaptability) that will be critical for our students as we more further into the 21st century. Not things easily evaluated by standardized testing. This school is a treasure!
My daughter just began Kindergarten this year at Kingsbury Country Day School. Their approach to learning is very different than the normal system of keeping an even playing field. Children are encouraged to learn at their own pace. Those struggling are given the best resources possible to succeed. Discipline seemed extremely lacking at first, but I have come to learn that whatever discipline system they do have in place works. All of the children have this wild and free spirit about them yet seem to develop into well rounded and extremely well mannered young adults. The teachers and staff are very friendly and welcome all conversations that work for the betterment of the school.Having just converted to a charter school, Kingsbury does have a few hiccups they are smoothing out. Most of the confusion comes from miscommunication. Generations of families have attended Kingsbury through the years. Families new to their school might find the ski Fridays, Soup-er Bowl Party, and other traditions a little intimidating. It can be hard to find where you fit in. Overall, Kingsbury is a wonderful school catering from Kindergarten to Eighth grade. I would highly recommend attending there.
