Meet Dr. Josh Deitch, Head of Middle School

I am very happy to write to you as the Head of Middle School at King School.  Every day, I watch students participate in discourse, dialogue, collaboration, and experience their willingness to take risks. Our reflective and thoughtful educators are passionate about ensuring that every member of their community is seen and known. I could not be happier to work at a place where everyone feels seen and known.

Over the course of my career, I have sought to build communities and cultures deeply devoted to the value and power of every individual student.  Middle School students go through more change during their young adolescence than at almost any time in their lives. They require a unique blend of personal relationships, caring support, authentic academic challenge, independence, and process orientation.  I work with dedicated teachers in the Middle School, who are clearly invested in helping our children develop both as scholars and as citizens of the world.

I actively partner with students, families, staffulty, and leadership to continue to build a student-centered and engaging middle school experience that always reflect the needs and passions of every King student.

All the best,

Dr. Josh Deitch

Head of Middle School

“King School guides every student in the discovery of who they are and how they learn. Students explore a wide variety of fields and topics deeply and intentionally. They seek to understand the ways that strong communities are built upon differences both in experience and perspective. Only then can students begin to see learning as a way to understand their community, their place in the world, and the possibilities they possess to drive positive change.”


— Dr. Josh Deitch, Head of Middle School

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.
