King is an amazing school! There are so many opportunities for advanced learning. Both academically and socially. This is a school that rewards the students for their achievements and citizenship equally. It is an organized and consistenly positive environment. The work is not simple and the expectations are high. This is a perfect school for students who want to learn every day. The staff provides high quality leadership and great role models for young adults. This is a school rich in diversity and opportunity. We are having a very positive experience at King Science!
