Your child only gets one shot at an education.
We are a small-town school district offering unparalleled opportunities here in Northern Michigan.
We give our students the skills and opportunities to pursue their dreams.
As a class B school system with 1,500 students, we’re big enough to offer a variety of programs, yet small enough to give every child the individual attention they deserve.
We offer 20+ activities, including our award-winning music program and championship-winning athletics.
Inside the classroom, our teachers and schools are consistently recognized for their achievements: Bridge Magazine ranked us 3rd overall for Academic All-State honors.
We’re underdogs with a track record of success. The Michigan Department of Education calls us a “Beating the Odds School” for maximizing student success and producing impressive test-results across the board.
Behind our achievements and success is staff that genuinely cares. Our teachers are humble, hard-working, and personally invested in our kids.
We can tell you all about what makes us great, but the Kingsley difference is one you need to experience for yourself. Give us a call, drop an email, or stop by any time for a tour or a chat. We’d love to welcome you into the Kingsley family.
Hi! I’m Dr. Keith Smith. I have had the pleasure of being the superintendent of Kingsley Schools for 11 wonderful school years.
I am honored to work alongside our dedicated teachers and staff. As a district, we are unified, organized, and committed.
I’m proud to work in a district that feels like a family.
We’re here for each other inside the classroom and outside of it. We're all neighbors, and we look out for one another.
To that end, I understand that life doesn’t always happen between 9-5pm: I have an open-door policy for all of our students, staff and families. I want to be here for you when you need me.
Feel free to call, email, or text me directly if you ever have a question or concern.
