    I spent 4 years at The King's Academy and it was amazing. I had caring teachers who were always accessible, small class sizes a very safe campus. One highlight of every year was when over 400 students, faculty and parents got in buses and travelled down to Mexico for 1 week building houses for the poor there. Our school has been doing this for 20 years. King's was more like a family than just an academic institution. It was an awesome and life changing influence for me!

    Great school culture, teachers are amazingly supportive of the students. They really focus on all aspects of the child: academic, spiritual, emotional and physical. Truly feels like “home” for my 3 children. Not at all institutional like the public school where teachers are gone 1 minute past the end of school bell. And we live in one of the top 3 school districts in the Bay Area. If you care about the “whole child”, King’s is the place to be!
    The King's Academy: Convergence to a Subpar Mean.

    TKA is a great place to get by—the teachers are kind and competent, the atmosphere is laid-back, and if you want a cushy, uncompetitive educational experience, King's is a great choice.

    However, as much as King's likes to tout the title of being a "college preparatory academy," this is pure fantasy. King's boasts lackluster academic opportunities and non-rigorous classes, a stark contrast to the excellent public and private schools in the area. While there is nothing inherently wrong with the low-stress style, their approach breeds a sinister culture of apathy.

    There is no growth. Sure, King's students have Bible classes and mandatory chapel and even service trips, but when do they challenge their spirituality? When are they encouraged to be skeptical, to converse openly, to think? High school should be a time when we rebel a little, evaluate the status quo to find out what we hold dear, get pushed and push back. That is not TKA.
