Martha P King Elementary School5

I'm not sure how the 1 star reviewer managed to have such a horrible experience, but it is completely the opposite of everything I have seen in this school, the one that feeds this school, and the jr. high and high school that feed from this elementary. MPK is head and shoulders above anything I have seen offered on the Vegas side of the school district in both academics and especially discipline. While I don't discount that bad experience of the reviewer, it is most definitely not representative of the four public schools in this community. Both of my children have come out of this school academically strong, well rounded, and have had numerous chances at activities outside the class that have boosted their knowledge of the world around them (trips to Astro Camp, Pali Camp, Catalina Island, Civil War re-enactments, World Traveler - Nevada Citizen - and Great American programs).
Moved here from north Las Vegas 4 years ago. Such a tremendous difference in the school here! All three of my girls have attended mpk and all have loved it! It's great to have teachers that care! We love Martha P. King!!!
I just had to get out of my way to mention that Mrs Rogers is a wonderful 3rd grade teacher. She once told me that she wishes she had more time in the day to dedicate to each one of the kids in her class just so that she could help them learn the subjects better. Her heart is in the right place and it shows. Wish there were more teachers like her.
The teachers, along with the curriculum, were everything I hoped for my children to experience, and more. They really cared about the students, succeeded in maintaining great discipline, and also encouraged patriotism, which many schools these days sadly lack. It really deserves the great ratings it receives.
I have had 2 children in this school.Overall I believe it to be a below average school.I am a firm believer of honesty and discipline,which this school has very little of.The school district has changed tremendously and I realize there is only so much a school can and cannot do.However,if I had more children of this age,they would not go this school.Both of my children cried off and on for three years that they did not want to go to school ever again.I now have two children who absolutely hate school who came out of this school.I a firm believer of home schooling as children cannot get the education they deserve through a public school.
