Schools all over the world offer opportunities for families to visit, explore the school, and learn more about curriculum and culture. The Open House model is not new or groundbreaking, but at Kingsley we pride ourselves on delivering an outstanding experience at each Open House event. Our goal is to provide you with an honest, in-depth look at what Kingsley provides, in an efficient, pleasant experience. We strive for our events to be convenient, welcoming, and forthright.
One motif found throughout Montessori-inspired education is known as The Gift of Time. This concept comes up in a variety of ways when working with Montessori students and educators, but always implies a similar idea. When a student (or anyone, for that matter) is hard at work with something, we give them time and space to work out a conclusion.
From its humble beginnings as a one room school house, to its current 330-plus enrollment, Kingsley has undergone many changes in it's eventful lifetime!
Boston is a wonderful city in which to raise a family. The convenience of the local amenities, the proximity to amazing public and independent schools, and the wonderful outdoor spaces that can be found around every corner combine to create a truly supportive environment.
At Kingsley, we believe that our students can, and should, be in charge of their own learning spaces. One of the ways that we promote this is by allowing students to work together with their classmates to create their Class Charter. Each classroom chooses their own way to approach this task. In every class, students work together and share their ideas to create a charter that describes their ideal learning environment.
How to Make Good Choices about After School Activities
Families today are always looking for the "best" ways to spend their valuable time. It seems that we're always overbooked, and that new options are always being added to our choices of activities. While we may not be able to help with picking-up and dropping-off the kids, we can help navigate the confusion of choosing beneficial activities for your children.
Each year, one lucky student gets to experience a fun-filled day in the life of the Head of School!
Each year Kingsley celebrates D.E.A.R. Day, which is short for "Drop Everything And Read." Reading is such a fundamental skill that we love taking the time to celebrate this day, and get lost in a good book!
Kingsley loves to celebrate the successes of our students, big and small. One of the most important rites of passage for our students is when they move from Kindergarten into Lower Elementary. We mark this event with a unique celebration known as the Kindergarten Marathon.
Kingsley's Summer in the City program is a great opportunity for children ages 3 through 12 to explore Boston, learn, and have fun with new friends. Summer in the City is a five week program, with specific themes attached to each week.
