At King School, we know each student well, both as a person and as a learner. We believe knowing students well is crucial to academic excellence because students who feel noticed, known, validated, and valued as individuals are more likely to engage fully and even joyfully in the challenges of learning with resilience and success. They are more likely to feel safe and take the intellectual, developmental, and emotional risks needed to enable growth.

Our teachers know the power of knowing each of their students as an individual -- using their students' interests, learning patterns, and personal goals as part of lesson planning, course selections, and activities outside the classroom -- all directed towards creating a challenging experience for each learner. This approach to teaching and learning allows students to reach their personal best.
