Open Minds. Courageous Thinking.

King students engage in an expansive curriculum that is based on student-driven inquiry and experiential learning. Our teaching methodology is guided by educational best practices and focused on strong relationships with faculty, creating a foundation for lifelong curiosity.

We value diversity and are inspired by our different backgrounds, perspectives, and lived experiences. Our students chart their own path; they are confident, prepared, and ready to make an impact — they are better prepared to better the world.

Our academics set us ahead

When students are supported and understood at a school, they feel more confident and encouraged to ask questions, explore new interests, and take risks – key components of deep and transformative learning. 


Our community sets us apart

Our community is empowered by diverse talents and inspired by our different backgrounds and perspectives. Together, the King community celebrates every student’s uniqueness.
