I love the teacher's, they keep me as a parent involved in those things I need to know about. My son has soured acadmically since starting Kingsley and is moving right along. They have a wonderful support staff and a student teacher ratio like one never seen before. I am very happy. My son is emotionally impaired and this staff is truly qualified!
