Kingston High School and Its Community

Kingston High School, nestled within the natural landscapes of the Kitsap Peninsula, is more than just an educational institution; it serves as an anchor within the vibrant and diverse community of Kingston, Washington. Located on the western edge of the Puget Sound region and conveniently situated near two ferry routes to the Greater Seattle area, Kingston enjoys a diversified economic base, including the influential Naval Base Kitsap. The rich cultural tapestry of the area is further woven by the Suquamish and S’Klallam Native American Tribes, who form an integral part of the local community and constitute 8.1% of Kingston High School’s student population.

Since opening its doors in September of 2007, Kingston High School has evolved into a microcosm of the larger Kingston community, embodying its diverse socio-economic composition, cultural richness, and forward-thinking spirit. The school operates within the semi-rural North Kitsap School District, which serves Poulsbo, and several unincorporated towns and includes two high schools, two middle schools, and six elementary schools. The unique organizational structure of Kingston High School, which is divided into four small learning communities, allows for a personalized approach to education, creating an intimate, inclusive, and engaging learning environment for all students.

The school's mission and vision are reflective of its strong commitment to the community. Guided by the belief that a quality public education is a civil right and a cornerstone of the American Dream, the school strives to equip its students with the skills and knowledge necessary for success after high school. Beyond academic excellence, the institution places a strong emphasis on civic responsibility and community engagement. Students are encouraged to form connections with the school and the wider Kingston community through involvement in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities, work, community services, and civic action. This community-oriented education model fosters the development of well-rounded individuals, ready to take on the challenges of the future and contribute positively to society.
