The Mission of Kingston Public School is to provide a safe, drug-free, supportive learning atmosphere wherein all students can become proficient and advanced in academic skills. We propose to provide encouragement in the social, emotional, physical wellness and growth of each student.
“We believe that all students can and will learn.”
Kingston 8th Graders had a blast at the Teen Summit hosted by the Madison County Health Coalition. Thank you for teaching our students to be drug free, rise above, be healthy, and inspire others!

Kingston School received the Toolbox for Education grant from Lowe's in January of 2017 for a Reading Garden. The library media specialist at Kingston School, Kaela Hawkins, wrote the grant based on the goal of encouraging students to read while providing an invigorating reading garden as the perfect location. The grant provided a walkway to the reading garden from the library, with new steps, an awning, and a deck with benches and flowers. Teachers and students are excited about using the garden for outdoor learning purposes. The Kingston School maintenance supervisor, Jim Nolan, completed the carpenter work of the project with Michael Meyers assistance. Doug Hawkins completed the welding and assisted in other areas as needed. C.J. Bellinger and Brent Mitchell helped with dirt work. Shannon Burcham, Riley Walden and Nikkoli Williams assisted with painting and dirt work. A special thank you to everyone involved!

Each year, the Office for Education Policy (OEP) at the University of Arkansas creates a report entitled the Outstanding Educational Performance Awards highlighting the highest-performing schools and those that have made great progress in Arkansas.
We are pleased to announce that schools in the Jasper School District have received an award. Based on the results of the 2014-15 P ARCC and Arkansas science assessments, performance is measured by the OEP-created "school GPA." High Achieving" Awards are given to schools with the highest GPA, and "Beating the Odds" awards are given to high-achieving schools that serve low-income communities where at least 66% of students are enrolled in the free/reduced lunch program. "Most Improved" awards were only given for science and highlighted the schools that showed the greatest gain from one year to the next. To learn more about how we determined the OEP award winners and to see the full list of award recipients, you can view the reports at our website, officeforeducationpolicy.org. We congratulate you on this accomplishment and hope that you will share this good news with teachers, students, and any others who contributed to your school's success. Congratulations again on your OEP award!
