Despite all prior comments, The King's Academy is a very challenging high school, if you want it to be. Take all AP and honors classes, and get as far ahead as possible, and you will get a rigorous, challenging education. Some departments (math, for example) are behind in curriculum, but if you want to get ahead, it is very possible (online, doubling up courses). My opinion is that the more you put into your education, the more you can get out. The end result is a rigorous, indefatigable homework load and vast opportunities. This school is no less difficult than many competitor schools, such as Suncoast. However, difficulty varies with the teachers. Some teachers assign an impossible quantity of homework and endless tests, and some teachers hardly care. Many of these teachers are leaving this year. Rarely do students get much sleep, and I, personally, have had to quit all extra-curricular activities. It IS, and CAN BE, a very difficult school!!
