    My children have attended Kings for three years. I have had children in Elem. Junior and the Senior High Schools. I think this is an excellent district. I have taught and my kids have attended other schools closer to the city. Unless you have ever gone to a school closer to the city you don't know how lucky you are to have such a great district. My students grades have gone up there is a lot of one-one teaching students are encouraged to participate in sports not a lot of trouble occurs at the school even in the Senior High. I don't think you are going to find a better district unless you go to a private school.

    I graduated from kings in 2002. I remember junior high was a tough 2 years for me. It seemed like there were so many cliques. Teachers didn't help make the environment any easier when they seemed to favor the more outgoing 'cooler' kids. We also had 'team 1' and team 2' I know this might have helped teachers plan their lessons better but it seemed like a divison among the students. Each team did their own thing. Instead of dividing students up and labeling them i think it would have been much more effective to provide equality among all students. It would also provide a chance for students to branch and meet new people. I also think the teachers should have been more in tune with the 'awkward years' of growing up and been more sensitive toward the students during this period of schooling.

    We had terrible problems with this school moved out of the district as a result. But unfortunately we waited much too long. The social environment is awful and it seems they would rather gloss over it and pretend there is no problem than address it. I don't think we will ever get over the things that we went through in this school district.

    This school has a definite problem (which is not being adequately addressed) when it comes to a student's safety from bullies. Also there are a number of teachers that are continually dishonest with parents. For instance - telling parents of a problem child that their child is the only student that they have problems with. I know this to be untrue in one particular case because I've talked with many of the other parents.
