OVERVIEW
The theme of Kingsley Charter School is Brain Compatible Learning. Kingsley delivers instruction through the arts, literature, writing, and movement. The classroom climate supports learning by providing a caring, safe, and enriching environment, and instruction reflects high challenge and low stress. Higher order thinking skills are developed through a rigorous and challenging curriculum, and the focus is on differentiated instruction to meet each child's needs. Students participate in cooperative learning groups, literature circles, Reading Renaissance, and many other small and whole group activities to develop creativity, social skills and academic skills.
SCHOOL GOALS
The Kingsley Charter School provides brain compatible classrooms which are defined by four principles.

  • A safe and non-threatening environment is provided through alternative seating, movement, music and colors, which help children to overcome anxiety.
  • A stimulating and varied curriculum is reflected by the fact that the instructional activities in all academic areas are focused to provide for the different forms of intelligence.
  • Students are expected to solve problems, conduct experiments and draw conclusions about course content, thus developing concepts and critical thinking skills.
  • Students receive accurate and timely feedback which challenges them to extend their thinking and test their ideas.
