  • Park is a proud, close knit community. We provide our students with a globally com- petitive education, and our graduates contin- ue to attend some of the most prestigious colleges and universi- ties across the coun- try. The KPCSD is a great place to live and raise a family. Feel free to call us should you have any ques- tions regarding our schools, programs, and offerings.

    Educating children is not an isolated activi- ty, but rather a col- lective and collabora- tive one. As the Afri- can proverb states, "It takes a whole vil- lage to raise a child." I feel very fortunate to be able to serve in Kings Park and to have the opportunity to build bridges with the community and move this great American school dis- trict forward. Our staff is second to none! Our teachers

    are skilled and commit- ted to meeting the needs of all children. Our ad- ministration is reflective and responsive. Kings

    Kings Park is a suburban

    hamlet in Suffolk County

    located on Long Island’s

    north shore in the Town

    of Smithtown. Kings

    Park is about 45 miles

    east of New York City.

    Many of our residents

    commute by railroad,

    which is located in the

    middle of the town.

    Kings Park is a small,

    close-knit community.

    Sunken Meadow State

    Park and Nissequogue

    River State Park are two

    of the many treasures lo-

    cated within the school

    district. Since we border

    both the Long Island

    Sound and Nissequogue

    River, water sports such

    as fishing, sailing, and

    boating are very popular.

    Trails for biking, walk-

    ing, or jogging, as well as

    several local golf courses,

    provide ample opportuni-

    ties to enjoy the outdoors.

    Summer time events also

    include: a weekly

    Farmer’s Market (on Sun-

    days, a weekly car show

    on Thursdays and Music

    on Main live music every

    Friday evening. Addition-

    ally, we have annual

    events such as St. Pat-

    rick’s and Memorial Day

    Parades and Relay for

    Life.
