This school is riding on a reputation from the past. There is a major disconnect between families and administration. Administration comes off as condescending in many circumstances. The high school is being filled with international students in order to keep numbers up. It's a shame, it was a great school once and the potential is still there.
This school has an excellent academic program, aggressive athletics, and a strong emphasis on Biblical integration. The teachers and administration are student centered and always have time for students and parents. Student and parent concerns and ideas are always heard. There is help for students with the college admissions process and students are well prepared to enter the college of their choice.
The academics here are sub-par. Teacher quality is hit or miss and teachers do not have the resources needed for the "academic excellence" they claim to provide. The school is more liberal than expected, concerts and events include a lot of secular music. Leadership is not very receptive to parent concerns.
I have always found the faculty & staff to be more than willing to meet with me. I appreciate the support as a parent trying to raise Godly kids. Knowing we are ALL sinners, I have found more of a humbleness and wanting the best for the student. Also, willing to update programs/curriculum when needed.
I had a bad experience with two of the teachers/staff and they handled it so unGodly, just to save themselves, when they knew I was going to speak with the Principal, they rushed and told her their own version so then, the Principal was on their side. very uncomfortable and bad testimony! Also, saw a couple of mistakes in their teachings.. "Amore" is not a Spanish word that is Italian.
Kings is a wonderful Christian School. Academics are first rate with many advanced placement classes offered. The teachers are caring and provide excellent instruction. The new facilities now provide a practice gym which they were previously missing. The administrators are there to listen. This is one of a few accrediated Christian schools in the area.
King's is providing my children with a quality education which equips them academically as well as spiritually. They receive a Christ centered education that teaches them to become effective servant leaders who will one day impact the world for Christ. Academically King's has very high standards with several advanced placement courses to challenge students. High standards for the students are the norm. Parents can be very involved while volunteering in many areas.
As a recent alumni parent, I appreciate all that King's does to prepare students for college. King's has done a lot to constantly improve on their situation over the years for their facilities and academics. I would recommend King's to anyone seriously looking for a quality education from a Christian perspective. The Chrsitian perspective really does help shape how a child looks at every subject.
