About King


A Better Standard for Education

At King School, we seek more than achievement for our students. We open minds and spark courageous thinking.

Every day, our students discover and forge their unique paths to excellence as we teach, guide, and cheer them on.

Because when we set better standards for both the experience and outcomes of education, students cultivate the insights and heart to own their future.


King is dedicated to preparing its students to thrive in a rapidly changing world.

We provide an excellent, progressive education, grounded in the traditional disciplines of the arts and sciences, committed to the nurturing of individual potential, and designed to promote critical thinking and reasoned reflection. Using rich and innovative methods, our Teachers facilitate each student’s fullest academic and personal achievement. We champion the development of character, self-confidence, and talent through challenging intellectual, creative, athletic, leadership, and service opportunities.

King believes that individual accomplishment must go hand in hand with respect for others. Our culture of respect fosters collaboration as well as independence. We embrace human and cultural diversity. We value responsible citizenship.

King graduates are well equipped to succeed in college and to pursue lives of ongoing inquiry, learning, accomplishment, personal fulfillment and social responsibility.


Our Values and Virtues

When individuals are known and valued, the result is a teaching and learning community powered to greater heights through the strength of trust, mutual support, and collaboration. King School sets a better standard by  intentionally establishing a welcoming culture. Students, families, faculty, staff, and alumni thrive because they are included and encouraged at King. 

King School Values

History Defines Us

Our relationships with the schools we attend are deep and complex. Our education lays the groundwork for continued learning, careers, and our relationships with the communities we join. Our alma maters remain part of us forever.

King School today draws on and is inspired by the ideals of all of our predecessor schools: Low-Heywood, Thomas School, King School, Low-Heywood Thomas, and most recently KLHT. We value how a deep connection with our alumni family enriches our entire community.
