    "We're so pleased to be a part of the King Arts community! Principal Brown and the teachers at our school are all very involved, committed and caring. We love the various arts programs and couldn't be happier here!"

    "We've been at King Arts for the past 3 years. Most of the teachers are very good. The principal, Dr. Brown, is amazing. There is a strong PTA. If you get involved you'll soon get to know many of the staff, administration and other parents. We love the fine arts and literary focus. My 2nd grader just performed in the 2nd grade musical Willy Wonka Jr. All of the fine arts teachers are top notch."

    "Martin Luther King JR Lab School has now been renamed Martin Luther King Jr. Literary & Fine Arts School -- but, it is still the same great school. This public school is a model for others in the area. With a very diverse population, this school meets the needs of all. Whether a student has special educational needs, physical disabilities, or is a student with average to above-average or "gifted" abilities, this school works with every parent and each student. I have had an affiliation with or taught within many fine schools -- MLK junior teaches academics, builds upon creativity, and emphasizes cooperation and character building to each child that enters here. If all public schools sought to meet these standards, our school systems and citizenry would not be in such a state of turmoil. Kudos to MLK jr Literary and Fine Arts School in Evanston, Illinois."
