Kinston kids have the opportunity to enroll in the Thompson School District, known for its collaborative culture and educating “the whole child” for life beyond the school walls. Its teachers, staff, parents, business and non-profit partners all working together to empower students, putting them on the path towards college and career readiness.
Riverview PK-8 School
Introducing Thompson School District’s newest school, Riverview PK-8. Inspired by the principles and programming of STEM, International Baccalaureate, and schools for The Arts, Riverview is designed to promote collaboration, innovation and flexibility. In an environment where kids are excited to come to school, have fun, and feel a sense of belonging.
Mountain View High School
Just a short drive or bike ride from Kinston, Mountain View High School offers a full curriculum of academics including Advanced Placement programs, plus a full calendar of extra-curriculars, from clubs and international field trips to all the major varsity sports. And as a designated Loveland Integrated School of the Arts, students can explore their creative side in visual and performing arts.
Resurrection Christian School
For parents who prefer an education for their kids that includes the heart, mind, soul, body and spirit, P-12 Resurrection Christian School provides a more faith-based approach. With a student to teacher ratio of 10 to 1 and high academic standards, it’s no wonder students have a 100% college acceptance rate.
High plains school
The nearby PK-8 High Plains School provides a well-rounded STEAM curriculum, turning students into well-rounded people. Science, technology, engineering and math are complemented with an education in art so that kids are developing analytically as well as socially and creatively. Students using both sides of their brains and learning to work together to solve problems is a reason to feel optimistic about the future.
New Vision Charter School
Not all kids learn the same way so not all schools should educate in the same way. Top-rated K-8 New Vision Charter School was started by a group of Loveland/Berthoud-area parents in 2004, with the idea that students learn best in an environment where they feel safe and where their differences are respected. The focus on individualized learning, academic achievement and personal growth is producing the next generation of lifelong learners.
Loveland Classical Charter School
The focus is on great works, great teaching and great character in this unique, tuition-free K-12 charter. Where students learn from teachers who are experts in their chosen discipline. Even elementary students learn history from historians, science from scientists and math from mathematicians. It’s a concept that has proven to keep kids engaged and academic standards high.
HIGH PLAINS ENVIRONMENTAL CENTER LEARNING
In partnership with Centerra and Kinston, High Plains Environmental Center is making our community more beautiful and sustainable – restoring nature where we live, work and play. In partnership with High Plains School, they are inspiring the next generation of environmental stewards – with programs in eco-literacy and hands-on learning opportunities in nature journaling, native plant and animal identification, and an Ecology Club.
Future On-Site School
One of the most important resources a community can have is access to a good education. We’re envisioning a way for kids who live in Kinston to walk to school in Kinston, learn in Kinston, and thrive right here in Kinston. So there are plans to provide the Thompson School District with a site for a brand-new school, complete with acres of sports fields. In a place that inspires a natural sense of curiosity.
Lifelong learning is the inevitable byproduct of a home surrounded by nature, art and culture. Yet, at Kinston, there are ways to take learning even higher. Colorado State University’s main campus is just up the road in Fort Collins. University of Northern Colorado’s campus is just down the road in Greeley, with a satellite location right here in Centerra.
