Open Quote Kingston pulls in a greater number of disadvantaged children and/or children for whom English is a second language than any other elementary school in Cherry Hill. They offer great resources for our children who attend, including inclusion classes, a dedicated English as a second language class for each grade level and they have just brought in a dynamic principle who has been a principle at a Early Learning school in Cherry Hill. It does NOT deserve the mediocre rating it receives, when evaluated simply by test scores, for the above reasons. I would highly recommend this school!!! Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
