Welcome to King

King School is a highly selective, PreKindergarten-Grade 12 co-ed, independent day school. We believe academic excellence stems from the interaction among a challenging program that requires students to be engaged, active learners; support by exceptional faculty; and a kind community. Our students are empowered to achieve their personal best. King graduates succeed in the top colleges and universities and pursue lives of ongoing inquiry and accomplishment.

Our great strength is that we are able to inspire students to achieve their personal best by helping them discover and build on their own unique strengths. Our faculty know each of our students at an extraordinary level of detail, and partner with students and parents to create the best possible learning experience for every student at King. Over 87% of Faculty hold advanced degrees; they are experts in their subject matter and in understanding how children learn. Our Trustees are committed to quality strategic planning that ensures the future development and strength of all aspects of the School. And our Alumni add their own perspective to the rich and unique tapestry that is our school community.

I hope you will take the time to browse through this site and gain a fuller understanding of what a special place King is. This website is an important resource for all members of our community that I hope you access and use on a regular basis.
