    This is my child's first year at KCS. We have been very impressed by the individual attention she has received in the classroom. The teachers go above and beyond to help her. The school provides a safe, nurturing environment for their students and encourage them through biblical teachings and values to thrive. We have been warmly welcomed by the administration, teachers and students. The involvement of the administration is like none I've ever seen...how may school principal's give you their cell number and text you after hours to congratulate your child on special achievements? Mrs. Gray at KCS does! I highly recommend this school. It's truly a partnership in your child's education.

    Our kids have been at Kingwood for 8 years. We love the Christ-centered environment with weekly chapel services, small class sizes to foster close relationships with fellow students and the wonderful faculty and staff. We have been very pleased with all of our teachers and the education that our kids are getting at Kingwood. It is a safe, loving environment and our kids do not want to be anywhere else. They love going to school and that makes us so happy!
    I am a graduate of KCS and I’m now a parent of a student there. We love our family there! And that is exactly how we feel, it is like everyone is family. My child is greeted by numerous staff members by name every single morning. They all truly care about each and every student. I love the small class sizes which provides a very beneficial teacher/student ratio.
