The Power of Wonder
At King, the smartest person in the room is not the one with all the answers but the one with all the questions.
Our students are the curious ones – the ones who aren’t afraid to ask why, to try something new, to get it wrong before they get it right.
Because if it wasn’t for curiosity, no one would have ever discovered that the earth is round. If it wasn’t for questions, we wouldn’t know that we can ﬂy. If it wasn’t for exploration, we would never have reached the moon. Questions took us there.
We believe in the POWER OF WONDER.
Lower School (PreK - Grade 5)
The Power of Inquiry
It begins with students as agents in the learning experience. When students are exploring, reflecting, questioning, evaluating, making connections — and expert educators are creating and welcoming these moments of discovery — students are truly learning.
Every day students are engaging as curious thinkers, challenging their intellect, and building the skills needed to lead lives of ongoing inquiry.
The Power of Belonging
We welcome different viewpoints and perspectives. Ensuring that every member of the community enjoys a sense of belonging is paramount to the school’s mission and aligned with our virtues of Integrity, Kindness, Perseverance, and Respect.
We celebrate our differences and various backgrounds, and we become stronger together.
The Power of a King Education
King alumni thrive in college and rise to the top of any field or industry. Powered by their curiosity and guided by dedicated and expert educators, our students learn and learn how to learn. Armed with all the necessary skills that they will need in their lives beyond King, they leave ready to tackle the next chapters of their lives.
Our students strive to make an impact as bold, curious, and imaginative leaders and change-makers. By the time they graduate, they are better prepared to better the world.
