Coretta Scott King Magnet School 5

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.

Students are given a homework packet to complete each week, along with a reading log. There are also 4-5 large projects throughout the year.

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.

The Principal rocks. She has done a great job in such a short time. The sky is the limit with every opportunity given the Mrs. DeBartolo.
