Kingsley Charter Elementary School is named Top Safe Routes to School in Metro Atlanta
Kingsley Charter Elementary School began its partnership with the Georgia SRTS Resource Center in 2009. Joining the Resource Center Partners was an easy decision as Kingsley Charter Elementary School already had a Safe Routes to School program in progress. One of the most outstanding features of the Kingsley Charter culture is Captain Kingsley, a superhero who encourages students to get involved in school activities and practice a healthy lifestyle. As a result, over 90% of Kingsley Charter students routinely walk to school. Their example has inspired other neighboring schools to join the movement and now they participate in walking and biking events as well.
