Welcome to Kingsley Elementary School
Our VisionKingsley School is a safe, welcoming and creative community of highly dedicated and skilled educators, staff, and families working together to ensure high achievement for every student.

Circle of Responsibility
We believe that the years in which our students attend Kingsley are critical because they are developing the foundational skills and knowledge that will prepare them for secondary school and beyond. In this context, we each have an important role to play:
We expect students to come to school every day with an attitude of enthusiasm toward learning, a willingness to take risks, respect toward others and a sense of responsibility regarding their role as members of the school community.
We expect teachers/staff to honor student learning differences while maintaining high expectations for all students. School leadership and staff will create an environment and promote practices that welcome and encourage participation from and communication with all families and the broader community.
We expect parents to instill and reinforce the value of education, set high expectations for their child’s achievement and behavior, stay informed and develop supportive and collaborative relationships with teachers/staff that promote learning.
We expect our Evanston community partners to work collaboratively with the school, sharing resources, maintaining open communication, and providing opportunities that help expand learning outside of the classroom.
