My son and daughter both attend king science. After visiting 6 different middle schools, it was clear that king science was the right fit. My kids and myself have a great relationship with the faculty. They go above and beyond daily and genuinely care about each kids future. My kids have been challenged in their honors classes and are involved in half a dozen school sports and clubs each. Even though we live in midtown, my kids have several school friends that live down the street. I was skeptical of king because of the neighborhood but I do believe this is one of the best middle schools in OPS.
King Science and Technology Magnet Center is one of the best schools in Omaha, I have had two of my daughters graduate from there who both went on to taking honors classes in high school. Currently my third daughter is in attendance there and has some of the best teachers I have seem in a public school system. She is excelling in all her classes and I expect she will be enrolling in honor classes in High School as well. Next year my fourth daughter will be attending and I have no qualms about what she will be learning. The School focuses on Computer, Science, and other advanced technology curriculum, as well as the basics. I feel all my daughters are, and will be, extremely prepared for high school and college as a result of their attending KSTM.
The teachers are very good at this school. They are willing to reach out and help the students with homework. The downside of this school is that there are some rough kids that attend the school. Teachers can't monitor the students at all times, and I felt that discipline against bullying was not handled approriately by office staff. Unfortunately I cannot recommend this school to another parent. It's a shame because they do offer some great programs.
King is the best middle school a student could ask for. The teachers are terriffic. They really prepare you for high school. Dr. Frison was the best princepal because she had respect at all times, but she also knew how to have fun with her students.
Dr. Frison is an awesome leader. My son has never been challenged so much academically and he loves it! The staff is so involved with student success that 80% of them support the PTA. PTA really has a heart for the students.
