About Our School

The King School was ranked a Level 1 School by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.

Expanded Learning Time School
MLKThe Department of Education awarded the school an Expanded Learning Time (ELT) grant, which funds all of our classroom and homeroom teachers an additional two hours. As a result our hours are 7:55AM – 3:55PM, except on Wednesdays, which are 7:55AM – 1:55PM (with the exception of Wednesdays, September 3 and 10, which will dismiss at 3:55PM). There is tremendous support for this program and we have received a great deal of local and national acclaim for our ELT design. Learn more >>

Mandarin Chinese Learning Program
Our Mandarin Chinese Language Program was one of the first in the nation. Students study Mandarin Chinese for forty-five minutes daily, starting in junior kindergarten. Students learn to write traditional Chinese characters, come to appreciate Chinese culture and learn to speak the language.

Responsive Classroom Program
We use the Responsive Classroom Program to build a positive classroom and school community. The program is a professional development program for teachers, which supports the philosophy that the greatest cognitive growth occurs through social interaction. Students in all grades participate in a morning meeting first thing every day. This allows the children to get to know one another and provides the teachers an opportunity to teach lessons about cooperation, responsibility, empathy and self-control.
