Martin Luther King Jr. School Reviews

1 review
MLK, Jr. is a small student body, with a great teacher to student ratio. A very diverse student-body and committed teachers make for a rich community. The school has been under-funded, under-supported and ignored for many years. It is digging out of a deep hole - but the current administration expects the kids to strive and succeed.

We've been a part of the Mandarin Immersion Program for 3 years and find it fantastic. Our 2nd grader is speaking, writing and reading Mandarin and English - and loving school. The MIP program is explicitly college-bound, with direct ties to 16 universities. We look forward to sending our other two kids in the coming years.
