  • This school has the finest principal in Wake County! She inherited a nightmare from a principal who tried to scare a student "straight"... Mrs. Schliesser managed to move Kingswood from a crippled state to a much, much happier, successful place for children. Many of the teachers who came with the school when Mrs. Schlisser arrived mid-year needed a lot of managing and attitude adjusting. I have seen Mrs. Schlisser try to make this happen. She is all over the school, in and out of classrooms and knows every child's name. The building is delightfully decorated and the front office people are by far the nicest I have met in any of my 7 children's schools.
