Congratulations to the new King inductees. These students have chosen rigorous academic programs and have met the requirements of all those courses of study and have often exceeded them. It is their sustained excellence over the entire course of their high school careers that marks them as worthy of consideration, although that is not to say that they have not grown emotionally and intellectually during the journey.

There were 65 projects from 98 total students and all of them included stringent statistical analyses even at the Grade 9 level, every hypothesis was tested in at least three different ways, and finally, with the inclusion of student projects from the Advanced Math & Science Research (AMSR) program, this year marked the first time that students presented rigorous, high-level research that was performed off-campus in professional laboratories.
"Big props to King School for bringing Christopher Dial to Stamford to talk about implicit bias. Many thanks to the KInD parents for the work they do to support the Committee. And may we all be patient with ourselves and those around us as we strive to understand how our brains work for us and against us, as individuals and as groups."
Alonna Christy '19 shares her inspiration behind her piece, which will be showcased at the Colloquium. Visual Art and Athletics at King have empowered Alonna to become more vocal and involved. "Art and athletics provide a safe space for me - it makes me feel comfortable, be more vocal, and come out of my shell," adds Alonna.
At King, we empower students to think for themselves, respect other opinions, and find their voice. Thank you to Grade 8 student Kareena Pasumarti for her reflections on her grade's recent trip to Washington DC. This trip offers a valuable bonding experience for the students and also provides meaningful curricular connections.
