CSK allows each student to learn upon entry the IB attitudes and learner profiles. The children are exposed to studies with a diverse social and ethnic knowledge base. Starting from kindergarten the children are able to express themselves in a clear and concise manner without fear but feeling confident and secure with who they are and want to mature into.
This is a great school. I have two children who attend this school. The IB curriculum is awesome and as a result children receive a well-rounded education that prepares them for middle-school and high school. My only concern are the handful of children will behavioral issues and lack of parental involvement from some parents.
Coretta Scott King Magnet School is an excellent school in a below average school district. Small class sizes, devoted and caring staff, accelerated learning programs, and an abundance of extracurricular activities, make this school top notch. Coretta Scott King Magnet School is an International Baccalaureate Primary Years School aiming to develop inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. Very pleased with everything my child has learned through the years and am so thankful for us to be a part of this community.
I really can't post anything good or bad about this school. I tended this school back in the 70's when it was called Hickory Elem. We all had finally found a home here when it was finished built in early 1970's from Balmoral. This school really brings back memories. It created doctors, and lawyers I still know personally and 2 senators even who went on to Crete Monee. From what I see now, it is still a great place for children to learn. I hope they will expand in life like so many of us who did here.
