Kingwood serves middle school students in grades 7th-8th. Students begin utilizing online and ibook (iPad) textbooks starting with the 6th grade year. BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) has become extremely popular in our society and has been fully embraced by KCS. Students are allowed to and encouraged to bring their devices from home to use within the classroom to stay organized, take notes, research topics, view pictures/videos and lots of other things that support the educational process.
Middle school students also participate in the ASPIRE ACT testing as well as STAR Reading and STAR Math testing. These are standardized tests that allow our faculty to accurately guage a students’ present level of functioning compared to his/her peers on the national level.
