Kingsford Elementary School is committed to providing an educational environment that both fosters a sense of community and recognizes the unique needs of individual students to encourage success. The school's work is rooted in the philosophy that all students, regardless of background, can learn and achieve their full potential, with the proper resources and support. In order to provide this support, Kingsford Elementary School employs creative teaching techniques in the classroom and encourages parent involvement. Beyond academic achievement, the school's approach emphasizes the social, emotional, and physical health of its students.
In 2004, Kingsford Elementary School implemented the innovative technological program KidBiz3000 for its students. The platform is a web-based reading and writing instruction program for 2nd through 8th grade students, designed to integrate with the teacher's lesson plans and curriculum. The program allows every teacher to assign individualized reading and writing assignments according to each student's personal level, offering personalized coursework that can help improve proficiency.
