    "King is one of the best-kept secrets of the Chicago Public Schools system. This is my daughter's second year, and I could not be more pleased with the school. The classes are rigorous, the teachers are absolutely wonderful, and I am really excited about the new interim principal (who was the assistant principal last year)! The fact that it's not far from my house is a total bonus, but I would drive across the city to get there if I had to. (And the football team made it to the state level this year, so there's that, too!)"

    "King is a wonderful school. It not only focuses on academics but focuses on the students who go there, they not only have a wonderful curriculum but performing arts as well. From band to dance,King has it all. They really are preparing every student for a road to success and being the best person they could possibly be by steering them in the right direction."

    "King is a state-of-the-art high school with three theatre spaces, two gyms, a professional dance studio and a pool. The students are talented, smart, friendly, and down-to-earth with their focus on their very bright futures. King offers every program you could wish for, and the most caring team of teachers and counselors you will find. An award-winning school in many programs, I feel blessed to teach at this school ... what else? Caring, involved community and parents ... steady improvement in test scores and other academic measurements ... a well-rounded curriculum and seemingly endless electives for students to expand their education ... King is the place to be. Period."

    "This was my daughter's number one choice for high school. The curriculum is challenging, but there are so many supports in place. There is before school tutoring, after school tutoring, lunch tutoring and teachers even tutor. There are so many activities that every student can find their place at King. The principal talks about how King molds the minds of scholar-leaders, scholar-athletes, and scholar-artists. I can honestly say that mt daughter is all three."

    "I drop my son off each morning and I am amazed to see the principal outside everyday, greeting every student. The team at King takes their jobs very personally. The English teachers volunteer their time after school to re-teach and re-test students who need the additional instruction. There are other teachers who give up their lunch periods to help my son nearly every week. I wish i had this kind of support for my older daughter at another school."
