|My opinion: We were at Kingswood for over a decade - it used to be the best school in Melbourne, but since Elisabeth Lenders became Principal it has become the absolute worst. I am told that the school now troll social media and a staff member writes all the good reviews you might read (notice that they all sound like the school wrote them!?) and they delete all bad posts. (So this one won't stay here long.)|
Honestly IMO, it is very expensive for what you get, their academic results are generally poor, (they have no idea what to do with clever kids), they have a lot of special needs children, most of the senior staff have left and there are now a lot of inexperienced staff, but most importantly - bullying is covered up(!) I am not convinced that the school cares about the kids at all. I know a lot of kids that have ended up depressed and in counseling after going to Kingswood under E.Lenders. It's heartbreaking. So I can't warn people enough to not believe Kingswood's advertising and PR.
The grounds are nice but they rent out the facilities to gyms and other adult organisations so child safety is compromised, and the new car parking system is ill-thought out and an accident waiting to happen.
Being a Uniting Church school, the Council have zero power, so if you want to go over the Principal's head (and you probably will) there is no one to go to. She is the alpha and omega.
The Junior School Principal is nice - but that's about all I can say that is positive. My rating: 0/10

|My two boys in years 5 and 8 love this school. They have both been there a number of years now and are vocal about how much they love the school and the comparison to their last school. The school is very supportive and the teachers take great interest in every child- catering to their individual needs. The school has encouraged their creativity, intellectual development, sporting capability and social and community awareness and development. I cannot speak highly enough about the school, the teaching staff and school leadership and the community. |
