    "Thomas Starr King has been changing on the inside for years and now that it's 3 magnets and API scores increasing each year is a true testament to the work done before we started. Our daughter attends the Environmental magnet and just loves it. My hubby and are are part of the beautification committee "I Keep King Clean" and see a bright future for generations to come."

    "Truth-be-told, I spent the better part of my son's elementary school years filled with dread/anxiety about sending him to this school. However, over the past several years things have changed tremendously, and I'm so happy we're here! TSK is now an all-magnet school, which means no more have's/have not's, and all the kids benefit from the same great opportunities. The collaboration between parents/administration/and teachers is pushing this school to new heights and it shows! My son is in the former "home school", which was transformed into the Film & Media magnet, and he is happy and thriving here. There are so many fabulous teachers who care about what they do and the kids they teach and welcome parent involvement. We came from one of the top-rated elementary schools in LAUSD, and as our neighborhood school, TSK is now completely worthy of the students that are filling it's halls. The only down-side is the lack of standard music/art education as part of the core curriculum, but unfortunately, this is a cultural condition, and not a fault of TSK."

    "Growing and changing. This school is in an amazing process of becoming a true neighborhood and citywide gem. The teachers and families are committed to higher standards of academics and environment. With three magnets the school can accommodate varied interests and challenge levels. The kids have a ton of spirit and Lion pride."

    "My son is in the 7th Grade Environmental Studies Magnet. We started in 6th and could be happier. The teachers are outstanding, the campus is warm and inviting with mature trees and gardens --feels large but not too large. There is daily PE, music, a great library and the community of kids and parent volunteers (Friends Of King) couldn't be more friendly. He has lots of new friends and said the other day how much he couldn't wait to go back to school because he's having so much fun learning! What more can you ask for? Truly a gem in the LAUSD magnet system."

    "My son went through the the Arts and Tech program, it was challenging but overall a good fit for our family. Most teachers were personable, approachable, encouraging and engaging. Most classes were enriching and my son enjoyed producing videos and acting out historical skids at the Renaissance Faire. English class in 7th grade was the only negative experience for my son. Though young and energetic the teacher's approach was rigid, militant and simply missed the point of teaching the joy of learning. She failed to help my son when he was struggling, but focused on strict formalities at the cost of crushing his spirit. Overall the Arts and Tech magnet is a great program, however I wish leadership would support parents more when a problem with a teacher arises."
