King stresses the math and science parts of their school. The staff and parents are very friendly enclusive and nurturing to all who enter. King is our home school and I would recommend it to families of all economic backgrounds.
As a magnet school focused in science math and technology King Elementary offers a great environment in which our children learn with hands-on science and computer activities. And the very effective Character Counts program is the basis for social learning. It's a lively place at times but it's a wonderful community for our family to be a part of.
