    "Having two sons in this school I am pleased. This school has really turned around under the new leadership. Teachers seem to care and will contact parents if they need to. Also the extra activites are great. I have one in band and Mr. Kimber is AWESOME! He makes those kids responsible. Yes a bit strict but the kids appreciate it. It has a wonderful new 9th grade wing which is long overdue. Mr. Bullard is a fairly new principal but has made great strides in turning MLK around. I would recommend it. Change and improvement won't happen over night and without parent involvement. GO LIONS!"

    "Very nice school my child enjoyed it except for the band director Mr. KIMBLE. She wanted To be on the drill team so bad but after dealing with Kimber she is no longer Interested and niether am I. The M.L.K drill team is the only girls that NEVER Get featured during half time shows, the band NEVER play music for them to dance to in the stands, all of the music he play is old and outdated but the dues are 700.00. My daughter won't be returning next year because I want her to enjoy her high school Years and he takes the fun out od the band:( other than that awesome school!"

    "My son has been attending Martin Luther King Jr. HS since 9th grade and I must say that there are great number of teachers that are really dedicated to making sure that the students that are there for the purpose of learning, get the things that they are there for. On the other hand, if I had to do it all over again, I would risk going to jail to send him somewhere else. I believe that if they were checking residency, they would find that a large number of the students are out of district. Another thing, there is too much emphases on sports and band, not enough on making the school the best if could be from parents and this is shown in the numbers that come out to the meetings what there focus is on. I am so glad that this is our last year, but wish them well. I know that the numbers are really going to go up since the new 9th grade academy will be opening 2014-2015 school year. I do believe that if Dr. King was alive, he would not be proud of how his name is being represented, through parent involvement and school leadership. Bacically, our children have been set up to fail because they don't have the basic needs, BOOKS....... 12th grade parent"

    "Horrible education wise, I'm in 10th grade transferred here this year, at my previous school I was taking regular classes, a few accelerated ones and doing well. After changing to this school I'm taking 11th grade classes and seeing material that I learned last year. I spoke to the counselor (he's already moved me to higher level classes several times) and Was told to just get A's in these classes. I'll be switching to a different school with a more challenging curriculum next year, if not later this year."

    "MLK is a wonderful school.... The teachers are devoted and will ensure that every child does their best..... Success is mandatory here... Yes... The children can be a bit out of line sometimes, but they understand that misbehaved students aren't tolerated..... This school is a great place for students to grow and learn... If Martin Luther King were still alive he'd be pleased to have such a prestigious school named after here.... It's a shame all students don't attend."
