My daughter is grateful for Mrs. Works because she is an awesome, caring teacher. Also, Ms. McQuaig because she is kind, strict and fair. Senora Lenzi is always willing to go the extra mile to help me when I have problems.
I was a bit nervous about having my daughter attend this school due to; it's reputation, the long bus ride (dd is in the IB program so has to do the magnet bus marathon), the fact that it is such a large school, and the challenge of the IB course load. My daughter loves it!! She even enjoys the long bus ride home as she gets time to socialize with friends. The teachers and staff have been very responsive to any concerns that I have had and do a great job of keeping the lines of communication open. There is one teacher that does not communicate well, but she will be retiring after this year :) The course load is challenging, but manageable. I was very happy to see that they encourage the children to participate in clubs, the arts, and athletics.
We are foreigners. My son joined ESL program in King High School. All his teachers are very helpful. My son loves his school. The Addmission Office, Guidance and Student Affairs are perfect. It is surprising that in such a big school they show special interest to every individual. We were lucky to live close and send my son there. I wish he could continue but it is not possible since we are foreigners he has to go to a private school after a crrtain time. Thanks to King High School. Fulya Okutur
Horrible. Inefficient, most teachers are there to babysit and only try hard when the exam bonus comes around. Unsafe environment. Barely answers the phone for anything. In order to see an administrator you have to WALK IN and cause a huge scene.
I'm very happy with my decision to choose King for my daughter. Great IB program. The teachers and students are great. A lot of home work every single day . They will be prepare to go to university easily .
itely good and bad aspects of the school. The campus is bad, they seriously need to repaint the buildings. Also, there are some bad fights, muggings, weapons, drugs, and trespassing. But that is what you get for putting a school right on 56th and Sligh. However, that is just the few bad kids in the school. Overall, the people in traditional are not that bad and if you don't bother anyone, they won't bother you. However, as an IB student, it is phenomenal. The people are great, they are all super smart (it's almost impossible to be val here) and they are really chill. Teachers encourage you to excel in your studies and to join many clubs. I have to admit, the program is definitely very rigorous at King, but we had a 96% IB diploma pass rate last year, highest ever in county history, so it is all worth it at the end. We IB students probably have the most school spirit. So, if you are going to be in traditional, it might be a little hard but you can survive though it. If you are going to be in IB, definitely come to King, I'd say the best IB school in the county.
The teachers are great at this school. The students are horrible. They are rude, direspectful,all they talk about is what clothes and shoes they have on and are always off topic in the classroom. The students are more focused on other things besides their education which makes it harder for their other class mates around them to focus becaise the teacher had to constatly stop teacher to get them in order.
This school is awful and I would never think about sending my child here. This school is home to some of the most ignorant children I have ever had the displeasure of meeting. Please anyone who sees this and is able to, fix this god forsaken school.
