    "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 !"

    "My daughter and our family are thrilled to be a part of making this a true "neighborhood school" that we can be proud of. My daughter had a fantastic academic experience in her first year of the arts/tech gifted magnet program with some fantastic teachers. She was challenged in way that she never has been before. We are all excited about the fact that this is now a 100% magnet school so that EVERYONE in the community has options like never before. There is a strong parental base of involvement, excitement you can feel and forward motion only."

    "I'm so proud to be a parent here at King and even prouder that my daughter goes here. Because of quality teachers, great staff, hardworking, involved parents and above all, a great group of young scholars, this school has made leaps and bounds of progress and we've only just begun. The movement, started a few years ago, has mushroomed into King's evolving into the "middle school to be reckoned with", and I'm so excited to be on board to witness and assist this transformation. It does indeed take a village and the King community of parents, teachers, staff and enthusiastic student body...along with the enormous support from our surrounding community, will soon be seen as the premiere middle school in the district. We Love King!"
