Why Kingsley?

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.

Our Mission

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.


Superintendent's Corner

On December 14, the Kingsley Board of Education unanimously voted to hire Mr. Brad Reyburn as the new superintendent. He comes to the district with 11 years of administrative leadership experience, most recently serving as the principal of Newaygo High School.

"Something I try to live by is 'work hard and treat people well.' I hope to lead by example. Be visible, treat people well, and hopefully that will translate into some good things," said Superintedent Reyburn. 

I really do want to be a servant leader, that person who's in the district who people can come to, and we can have a good conversation. I don't want to lead by edict, I want to have conversations about how I can support them and give them what they need."
