I am a student at King High school, and I must say it is not full of violence, but of course it's gonna have a fight or two. I had a choice to leave King but I said no I want to go back, I been there since I was in the 9th grade and I will be a Junior this September I couldn't leave the school that I know and I grew to love. No it's not the best school, and so what ! People think they know my school because they heard this they heard that , yeah king was a mess along time ago, but I think it's fine and that it is safe. King is a beautiful school, it makes me feels like home when I walk down the halls looking at the beautiful morals. King Has Loving, Caring teachers who wants to educate us. Some of my favorite teachers got laid off and I am not happy about that but I know I will meet new teachers in September that I will grow to love . I just wanted to let people know that my school isn't bad it's a good normal school that need a little push and support!

Well, what can I say about MLK H.S.? Unfortunately, I can't really say too much. I'm a former teacher here, and to put it bluntly.. I fear for the vast majority of the students here. The class sizes were FAR too big given the discipline problems of the students. On average, my classes were like a war zone. I was consistently cursed at on a daily basis. I would consider teaching here similar to being a prison guard at a maximum security prison. Out of the approximately 150 students I had, I would say I had honestly about 8-10 students that truly cared and wanted to learn on a consistent daily basis. The rest of the poor lost souls that I had I truly fear for. If they think that they can act like they do in school outside in real life when they graduate, then they are simply doomed.
