We moved to this school in the middle of my son's 3rd grade year due to a job transfer. I was impressed with the organization & professionalism of the office staff, as well as the building security. No one can enter the school unannounced/roam free without staff knowledge. My son rides the bus & their transportation system is very organized. One day, they had a substitute driver who was not as familiar with the route & my son was late getting home. I called the school & the office staff was able to explain this to me & contact the driver directly. I give my son the choice of eating the school lunch or a packed lunch. He took his lunch the first couple days & then asked if he could eat the school lunch. At this school (and I assume the district?) all of the children are offered FREE breakfast & lunch; & he LIKES the food. My only complaint is teacher/parent communication. I get general announcements via automated phone calls but I would have liked 'this is what we're doing in class' emails from the teacher.
we are a military family who only attended MLK for 3 months. There is ZERO communication with staff and parents. Homework comes home about once a month, Just bad, bad and more bad. Oh did I mention the school LOST my child the first day of school, out him on the wrong bus. Heaven help the students there!
Moved to this school from Germany. Loved it loved it loved it. The office staff and faculty are wonderful. The kids are well organized and kept under enough control to learn and grow. The prinicpal is always around. Unfortunally we moved away after spending two wonderful years there. My son hates his new school and always compares it to MLK. This school is really on top of things. Other schools could learn a thing or two from MLK and its staff.
