Welcome to the Middle School

Endless Self-Discovery

Students are told from a young age they need to focus their interests. By the time they reach adolescence -- precisely the time when they should be broadening their passions and talents -- they are instead becoming specialists.

Our children deserve schools that encourage self-discovery and build their confidence in exploring more things -- not picking one thing. King School sets a better standard by cultivating a student-centered environment in a private school where children thrive because they can become “both/and”: a rower and a robot-maker, a designer and a defenseman, a chemist and a choreographer.

A Better Standard for Middle School

When adolescents can delve into an expansive range of interests and topics, they are more likely to discover the multitude of their talents and passions, as well as identify opportunities for growth. Students who feel supported in keeping open minds ask, “What’s next?” and “Why not?” as they look to their futures. As a private middle school in Stamford, CT, King promotes this self-exploration and self-awareness, encouraging students to discover their academic, artistic, and athletic talents in ways that foster balance, growth, and overall wellness.

Skeletons emerge from Grade 7 Honors Biology students' closets, kitchens, and garages

Students were tasked with building a skeleton using only the materials that they had at home. They were required to follow a rubric, which outlined what bones they had to present, the composition inside of bones, the types of tissues that would surround a joint, make two moveable joints and demonstrate their movement, illustrate a fracture and name its type and then show the types of muscles and name them.
