Both of my High School age sons have been challenged to improve on their strengths and assisted in their weaknesses by the wonderful teachers at King's Academy. We have had many lively dinner table discussions inspired by assignments and events that occurred at school. We love the fact that the low teacher/student ratio allows for ample class discussion and a sense of camaraderie among the students. Highly recommend checking out King's Academy!

Two of my children have benefited from attending King's Academy. They were taught how to think rather than what to think. The curriculum is challenging without being overwhelming. The low student/teacher ratio as well as the highly qualified teachers who demonstrate concern for the character of their students as well as their academic success is one of the most important benefits of King's Academy.

Low student-teacher ratio. Well qualified faculty. People who care about the character of your child as well as his academic achievement.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
