Building Minds and Memories

KES has approximately 450 students enrolled in grades Pre-K through 5th grade.  We encourage parents and other stakeholders to become involved in our school!  The KES PTO is always looking for parent volunteers to help with school fundraisers and other projects.  If you would like to become involved in PTO, please call Dr. Karon Ellis, Principal, at 729-5246 or e-mail her at [email protected] .

The KES School Council meets the last Monday of every month at 11:30 a.m. except in November and December when the council meets on the last Friday prior to student holidays.  All meetings are open to the public.  KES also has a very active partnership with the Trident Refit Facility at the Kings Bay Naval Submarine Base.


Kingsland Elementary School’s mission is to provide all students a challenging academic program in a nurturing environment that equips them with fundamental skills for lifelong success.
