At King School, we believe that wondering minds go further. We unleash our students' curiosity and help them discover the power of wonder. 

Students PreK-12 become agents in their own learning. When students are exploring, questioning, making connections, — and teachers are creating these moments of discovery — students are truly learning. 

From the wide variety of active, immersive learning experiences to intentional efforts to reach each and every child, King students embrace learning in a diverse community where multiple backgrounds and perspectives are celebrated. 

King graduates leave school full of possibility — ready to succeed and better prepared to better the world.
