As a student of TSK, I really enjoyed my experience there. For the most part, I had very good connections with all my teachers, and if I was struggling, I knew they would be there for me. King also offered me an extremely wide range of activities and opportunities. From the Gay Straight Alliance to the chess club, you can become an active member of change in this community. Just like every school, I had to navigate my way through students in order to find the perfect friend group for me. Now these friends stick by my side through up and threw down, making my experience at this school amazing.

Thomas Starr King is an excellent school. There are 3 different magnets at the school. From my experience, some magnets were better than others. The gifted magnet had students who were much prepared than the other magnets. Out of the other two, I feel film and media was worst on an academic level. Balance would have been much better between the none gifted magnets.
I only came to king for 8th grade n I hav to say 8th grade was my only good year in middle school. May I include that for every grade I didn't stay in just one school . But KING was THE BEST MIDDLE SCHOOL AND I MEAN IT. i am honestly realllllly gonna miss going to king :(💗It gave me the best experiences like all the 8th grade activities. This has also only been the year I had no drama. And if your worried that your child won't eat at school ooooh honnnneyyyy trust me you will not have to worry about that anymore cuz we have vending machines that have fruity snacks, granola bars, grandma cookie,... etc and not only that we hav a student store that gives ice cream and what other middle school gives ice cream. So if your looking for a middle school to enroll your child in out them in KING because trust me you won't regret it one bit !
