Profile Completeness

BASIC

Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

This is a wonderful school they spend time with the children indivually to be sure they each get the learning skills they need.

King stresses the math and science parts of their school. The staff and parents are very friendly, enclusive and nurturing to all who enter. King is our home school and I would recommend it to families of all economic backgrounds.

As a magnet school focused in science, math and technology, King Elementary offers a great environment in which our children learn with hands-on science and computer activities. And the very effective Character Counts program is the basis for social learning. It's a lively place at times but it's a wonderful community for our family to be a part of.
