School Notes

  • Engaged Minds. Meaningful Connections.
  • Be inspired in a community that unites academic challenge, kindness, and personal growth.King School prepares students to thrive in a rapidly changing world. What sets King apart is academic challenge, kindness, and personal growth are united within our unique community of engaged minds and meaningful connections. Guided by expert faculty, King students take responsibility for their own learning as active learners in a student-centered program that challenges students to achieve their personal best. We think deeply about our approach to teaching and learning and understand that relationships between students and teachers are at the core of academic excellence.
  • King faculty are trained in child and adolescent development and stay abreast of emerging insights from cognitive science and educational best practices.
  • Our rigorous program is designed to challenge students of all ages to be able to create something new - new ideas, new things. Teachers make students feel known and safe enough to take risks in order to make discoveries. Underpinning teachers` deep understanding of each student is a comprehensive student learning profile, introduced in PreK and developed through senior year. This proprietary database captures learning strengths, challenges, and goals, and provides a window into a student`s social and emotional development.
  • The King community prioritizes kindness. Our students thrive in a multicultural, diverse community and together we embrace our shared virtues of integrity, kindness, perseverance, and respect. King students emerge as their best selves - as self confident thought leaders who are able to analyze, synthesize, and communicate their knowledge in ways that demonstrate engagement and connection in the world community.
