School Notes

  • Further. More. 
  • At King School, we seek more than achievement for our students.  We open minds and spark courageous thinking. Every day, our students discover and forge their unique paths to excellence, as we teach, guide, and cheer them on. Because when we set better standards for both the experience and outcomes of education, students cultivate the insights and heart to own their future.   
  • When children are told there are only a few achievements worth striving for, and that their friends are really their competitors, their creativity and independence are stifled. At King, we set a better standard by daring young people to ask more of their education than a race to the finish. Our better way to be your best means amplifying students` passions and uncovering the talents they don`t yet know they have. King students celebrate achievement within community, and know that their King experience will take them wherever they want to go. 
  • When students are known, supported, and understood at a school, they feel more confident in exploring new things and taking risks. As a result, they are more likely to discover new strengths and push beyond what`s required to "make the grade." King students pursue meaningful research, boldly intertwine academic subjects, and share their learning in diverse formats. They deepen their understanding through the give and take of different perspectives. King students discover a better way to be their best.
