Kingston City School District Reviews

Since I am homeschooled, I will be rating the homeschooled community in the area as a whole rather than my home, since I will obviously have a skewed bias in both directions. At times the district officials were difficult to work with, and my mother had to work to not jump through different hoops every year. However, we were able to complete our paperwork and neither my nor my siblings paperwork has been turned down thus far. The homeschool community in the Ulster County and surrounding area is incredibly diverse and everyone does a good job of supporting everyone else. This extends to social events, college preparation, resource sharing, and the interaction with the local schools themselves.

I am now a senior here at Kingston Public School. We are state wide recognized for our sports, music, vocal, and other extra criccular activities. Their teacher to student ratio is 1/13 students. The teachers pay close attention to their students like they were their own children. They are the most caring, safe, diverse, talented school there is. It is the most wonderful school you could attend.
Overall very good, although there is some construction going on and things can be hectic, the school environment is pleasant and there are many different programs and clubs you can get involved in. Offers college courses and AP classes as well. Large sports and Music departments. Pleasant and helpful staff
