Kingston School: Respect and Responsibility
Welcome to a very special place for children where wonderful things will happen! Administrators, caring and supportive teachers and staff, and enthusiastic and involved parents, collaborate and work closely together to provide the best educational experience for the students in Kingston Elementary School. Kingston School is located on Kingston Road in the Kingston Estates section , and is part of the award-winning Cherry Hill, New Jersey school district. There are approximately 400 students attending Kingston School in Grades K - 5, coming to us from all over the world with various cultural backgrounds. Our school was built in 1956, and is named after the community in which it is located. Our school colors are blue and white, and our school mascot is the Kingston Bulldog.
Kingston School takes special pride in its faculty and staff and their dedication to the education of their students.
Kingston School is supported by an active PTA and is known as a tight knit community where our children come first.
A Rosa Reminder for parents of 5th grade students who participated in the Rosa Middle School open enrollment process for the 2019-2020 school year: You must return your decisions to accept or decline placement, or to remain or be removed from the waitlist, to the Central Registration office either in person or by mail by Friday, March 29, 2019.
After the New Jersey Department of Education announced on Thursday, March 7, 2019, that the Cherry Hill Public Schools (CHPS) will receive $18,424,908 in aid for the 2019-2020 school year, members of the Fair Funding for Cherry Hill Schools Committee, CHPS Administration, the Cherry Hill Board of Education, and Cherry Hill Township met with Assemblypersons Lou Greenwald and Pamela Lampitt on Friday, March 8 to express concerns about the funding. An overview of this meeting, including next steps, is available online.
The bond referendum designed to address many of the facility needs across our 19 schools failed in December 2018. The Board of Education must regroup and design an approach to the facility needs that will meet with the approval of the voters and enable Cherry Hill to provide safe, well-functioning and positive environments for our students and staff.
Before the next steps are taken, the Board of Education is seeking community members' feedback, constructive criticism and recommendations for moving forward. (Similar surveys were emailed to all Cherry Hill Public Schools parents and employees on March 6, 2019.) The responses to this survey will be openly and thoughtfully considered in the weeks ahead. Paper copies of the survey also are available at the Cherry Hill Public Library. Please take 5-10 minutes by March 27th to anonymously contribute to this important process. Your thoughts will be greatly appreciated.
The New Jersey Department of Education has directed school districts to include 11th grade students in NJSLA testing. To accommodate this, Cherry Hill Public Schools high school schedules have been adjusted:

On May 20 and 21, 2019, Cherry Hill High Schools East and West will operate on an early dismissal schedule, dismissing at 11:45 am.
