The King Open community is an amazing one- supportive, engaged, and diverse. King Open focuses on social justice as its theme, which means it's integrated into the day to day curriculum rather than being a one-off topic. The school spends more time on Project Based Learning and Social Emotional Learning than most schools in Cambridge, which contribute greatly to the school's atmosphere. Teachers and staff alike are dedicated and highly skilled. King Open also houses the Olá Program, Cambridge's dual immersion Portuguese language track (you need to sign up for this program separately in the lottery). Olá teaches children in Portuguese half the day and English half the day. No Portuguese knowledge or background is needed (most kids in the classes don't have any connection to Portuguese). King Open will be moving into a brand new facility in Fall 2019. Love this school and community!

Committed diverse staff. Resources lacking for teachers & students who struggling. Not much involvement from adults part to help students socialize appropriately. Bus had chaos, after school had low engagement. Several suspensions of Kindergartners. Not that good of a school.
The school is safe and open. But, when it comes to health and visiting the nurse not much help is done. However, the staff are very helpful and care for the students and will make an effort to know them personally.
