Literally this is a horrible highschool, do not send your child here and this is coming from a student. They are SO FAKE here and they don't care about you unless you are a star athele or you do something to make the school look good. It is WAY WAY WAY too overcrowded, it's ridiculous, so many kids are allowed in from other areas and it makes it hard on everyone else, the classrooms are too packed, you have to wait about 30 minutes (on a good day) to actually get out of the school, there is no shade so you basically fry your skin because you can't sit in the halls during lunch. The staff is very rude, not all but a big big fraction. I hate coming here everyday it just ruins my happiness and I'm usually a pretty happy person. Oh and btw if you're interested in football games I would suggest getting to the game like a hour and a half maybe two before it starts especially on homecoming because once again it's too crowded and they stop letting people in because there's no "room" happend to me any my family many times. They will NEVER work with you to change your schedule because they pack everyone into certain classes and they say they never have time or they just can't do it

Not a bad school....especially for the IE. Big campus, lots of clubs, pretty laid back, but the teachers do assign too much homework. A lot better than the high school I attended before this one. Teachers and counselors are friendly.

Transfered my sophomore in. My student is honors/AP. Teachers are completely focused on completion, not individual student. Registration was a day-long process and poorly managed. Assistant principal, Mr. Rhodes, fantastic. Tried to make appt with guidance to make 4 year plan, but they will only work with juniors and seniors! Also, every other Tuesday is minimum day for teacher lesson planning. Really...where is the student in these equations?

I have had 6 of my family members attend this school at different times, and all of them going from oldest to youngest have seen this school try to do much better each year. I have been attending this school now and have seen how much they changed since they first opened. I get lost of help from all the teachers, and lots of after school help as well. Everyone has been nothing but kind to me my whole experience attending

I have three sons and they all enjoy going to this school although they do have complaints about some of their teachers. I see a lot of girls wearing inappropriate attire which should be stopped and sexting is going on too. I am sure this goes on in all the schools these days which is very unfortunate. Just be aware.

My daughter is a graduating senior at this school. She transferred from Corona Centennial and quickly made friends with some great kids. Their is great diversity amongst the students and awesome counselors. A great learning environment.

I went to king high from 2004-2008 and I had a very bad high school experience. The school was very crowded and some of the students were rude.

I'm going to be a 10th grader this year and so far this school is great! I have nice firends and some great teachers but there is always a downside. King High School is way to crowed and with the 6 period schedule that we are changing to will only just hurt us in the long run. I'm going to be in Musical Theater this year and I have to choose between, Choir or finshing my two years of Spainsh off.

The drop your kid off area changes are ridiculous. Closing that area off creates more dangers for the children than it eliminates.

I love Martin Luther King High School. My child has a brain injury requiring special education accommodations. The staff has been so wonderful to her and so willing to help her. I communicate with them via email about once a month. They are always willing to communicate iwth concerned parents. Our expereince has been wonderful

My son has had tremendous athletic opportunities at Kings High School. His been involved in Varsity Football, Tennis and Track. He also has a 3.7 GPA. This all considering we changed schools when he only received one credit in grade 9. Kings offers alot to students who are willing to seek it out.

I remove my daughter after one semester. She entered King High as an Honor Student and in the first semester had trouble keeping her grades up. I asked for help from teachers and counselor. They were disinterested and stated that it was my daughters responsiblilty. Maybe it is but as a new 9th grader there must be ajustment periods and help available to make the adjustment. My daughter came to me and told me that she did not think she would get into college if she stayed at King High. So we removed her a enrolled her in Eaglespeak public charter school. We have been able to customize her class schedule to give her the electives that will enhance her college resume. She wants to go to Fashion Institute in L.A. King High wants only children that are easy to teach and they rest are on their own.

MLK is not a great school. It looks like a prison and thats exactly how the teachers treat the children, like they're in prison. My daughter went there for one semester but we transfered. I wouldn't suggest that anyone send their child to this school.

overall, king is more than ok. the one thing i am not satisfied with is the english program. i have thought this since my kids were in grade school. there needs to be more emphasis on writing. for instance, sentence structure is completely overlooked. too much is in the way of esthetics is considered important such as typing rather rather than content. some of this is the school but unfortunately much of it come from sacramento on setting the curriculum.

All the school programs, core to extracurricular, AP to sports, are excellent. I like best that 94% of the teachers are credentialed and 90% of the parents are actually a part of their child's daily life. And now Karen Stevenson's appointment as principal - with her record of excellence - I expect MLK will rank as the best high school in Riverside County. My son (Danny will be in 10th grade this year) plays in band, has many friends, makes excellent grades and is dead serious about which college he should attend. If this is what MLK has fostered...one grateful Father says Thank you.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
