A Better Standard for Education
At King School, we seek more than achievement for our students. We open minds and spark courageous thinking.
Every day, our students discover and forge their unique paths to excellence as we teach, guide, and cheer them on.
Because when we set better standards for both the experience and outcomes of education, students cultivate the insights and heart to own their future.
Open Minds. Courageous Thinking.
The knowledge and empathy to thrive in today’s world
When you learn in a community of people just like you, you’re not being fully educated.
At King School, we set a better standard by intentionally exploring how all facets of diversity and identity shape our perceptions of fact and truth. We know inspiration flourishes when students further their learning alongside people who don’t think alike, look alike, or act alike.
Diverse voices are heard and valued at King, and we are committed to making our school even more inclusive so that it reflects our community and the world our students will impact.

No Two Paths Are the Same
Discover and forge your unique path to excellence
When children are told there are only a few achievements worth striving for, and that their friends are really their competitors, their creativity and independence are stifled.
At King School, we set a better standard by daring young people to ask more of their education than a race to the finish. Our better way to be your best means amplifying students’ passions and uncovering the talents they don’t yet know they have. King students celebrate achievement within community, and know that their King experience will take them wherever they want to go.
“We are mathematicians, actors, athletes, writers, artists, debaters, and so much more. We are a family. We are all unique individuals who bring something special to our grade and larger community.”

“Follow your dreams and follow your heart. Whatever you're dreaming and whatever you want to be, you can do it.”

Own Your Future
The insights and heart essential to living with purpose
King knows that when learners see education as a place to experiment, create, construct, and connect, excellence follows.
Knowledge alone is only one part of the equation of a distinctive education. Young people need to explore and understand who they are. They crave a community that inspires them to dream a bigger dream about who they can be. They search for new ways to understand both timeless and emerging questions about what it means to be.
From day one, King students embark on this journey of self-discovery, where their academic, social emotional, creative, and physical talents combine to launch them on full and purposeful lives. The King community learns and lives with full intention. King graduates leave ready to take on the world.
“In college I will look for professors who mirror the teachers I had at King — teachers who are passionate about a topic and spark that same interest in students or help them discover a new passion.”

“I had to give a speech when I ran for student council. Having that extra confidence boost from being able to perform on stage was really helpful.”
