    "I am an 8th grade student attending this school right now. I love it so much here and it's going to be hard for me to say good by. The teachers and staff expect so much from us here and they really push us to do our best. This is the place to send your child.you won't regret it."

    "Wow, the switch to all-magnet really took the school to a whole new level. My son is in 6th grade, at the GAT magnet, and he loves it. Project-based learning, a nice, open campus that is being cleaned up bit by bit. The teachers are excellent, and the curriculum challenging. I am amazed at how many of the magnet kids are coming from Franklin, Ivanhoe, Wonderland, and the Los Feliz arts charter schools. I think King got a bad rap 10-15 years ago and it just stuck."

    "I have 2 kids at this school and it has the best organization in place that I have seen. I get informed of every detail that's going on at the school. Campus is clean and students and staff are very courteous. Teachers take every child's needs individually to offer the appropriate help. THere's plenty of supervision, including parent volunteers. My questions are answered and addressed right away. My kids love it and so do I. One thing i wish could get improved is the parking access to parents for events at the school."

    "I have an 8th grader & a 6th grader in the gifted/arts/tech magnet and am reminded every day what a great school this is. Starting at the helm with the administration, you have a group of people who are extremely approachable, sharp, warm and reasonable. They have a camaraderie that clearly extends to the amazing teachers - they all seem to genuinely like each other and have pride and a team passion, if you will, towards the school and teaching. This in turn extends to the students, who soak up these good vibes in their dynamic classroom settings. The kids are all challenged and not only "taught to the test" as we've been hearing, but inspired every day, pushed and encouraged to think critically, to consider other perspectives, and strive to achieve their best, all while utilizing tools at the forefront of technology and the arts. Socially, the kids feel cared for and supported by the adults, and any discord between students is handled seriously and with the same familial warmth. It's a middle school experience that is unheard of! To top it off, check out our API scores from year to year, now at an impressive 843. Pay attention, you will hear much more about this great place."

    "King Middle School has changed a lot over the passed 6 years. It has become a better enviroment for the students and more strict staff. I like the fact that things are more together here and I feel comfortable having my child attend here. The Magnet Program is fantastic and I have no complaints once so ever !"
