From King School

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.

At King, we know that the path to excellence is different for each of us. When children are told there are only a few achievements worth striving for, 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 their talents. King students celebrate achievement within community, and know that their King experience will take them wherever they want to go.

    King School more than lives up to its aims of living by "the strength of trust, mutual support, and collaboration" in everything they do! My daughter is in her third year at Upper school and it has been the happiest period of her life. Academically the school excels, but this is balanced by the loving and supportive attitude of the "Staffulty." Truly an amazing school experience.

    King School is the model average private school. Now keep in mind that I said an average private school, meaning that it has many things that can help students academically. For example, the science fair. King's science department has put a lot of emphasis on the science fair and pays for everything needed for student's projects, allowing kids to explore topics in a place that supports and helps them. However, King has a gaping lack of diversity in the student body. Around 90% of the student body are caucasian, but honestly, this doesn't make a difference in day to day life. Friend groups aren't based on race but interests, hobbies, and other things like history together. Other than that, King does have some problems like with the occasional fight or some vaping incidents but, let's be honest with ourselves, no school has fully avoided that problem as of yet.
    My experience with King was nothing but positive, and it is clear why the school's popularity and reputation are surging. My years at King were marked by excellent teachers, rigorous programming, and most importantly, a culture of warmth and kindness. Several programs, such as Advanced Research (in STEM and Humanities fields) and college counseling (see most recent matriculation list) go above similar offerings at other private schools in the area, and the campus is continuing its beautiful transformation with a new PAC, makerspace, and turf field all being built within the last ten years, to go along with the renovated upper school.
