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)

We create an environment that elevates wonder, curiosity, and joy. Our program is an interactive, hands-on experience that nurtures a love of learning and working with others. 

We foster self-discovery and encourage students to explore their academic, artistic, and athletic talents in ways that promote balance, growth, and overall wellness.

We empower students by emphasizing self-knowledge, expansive learning, and courageous thinking. These qualities lead to happy, healthy, and purposeful lives.

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.
