I am very glad that I had a chance to transfer my son to this school. He has learned so much from his teacher and I appreciate ask the time they out into their students.
I have had kids at King for 6 years and will have kids there for another 6 and am gratified that this is the school with which my kids have a long term relationship. They are learning and thriving. Teachers give them enrichment and advanced work when they need it and extra support when they're struggling. Their peers are wonderful. We're all proud to be part of the MLK community. My oldest is heading off to middle school next year and he's well-prepared and ready to tackle new challenges, thanks to the teaching and learning that happened at King. Please visit and check it out - see for yourself!
Having done my research on all the top schools in Providence, I am very pleased with the education that my son is receiving at MLK. Certainly there could be more extracurricular activities, but in terms of curriculum, they are top notch. It is a welcoming environment, diverse and a true gem on the East Side. The teachers are wonderful, and truly dedicated to positively affecting the lives of our children. Kudos.
Martin Luther King is a wonderful school. My girls have been attending since pre-school and have had great teachers. They love their school, their teachers and the many friends they have made along the way. My son cannot wait to start pre-school at King so he can be a part of it as well. As for the new principal and staff are definitely doing a great job. Everyone is very friendly, helpful and organized. Nurse Wittles is the best. Looking forward to another great year. Keep up the great work everyone. I hope we win!!! :)
This is a diverse school that provides the highest quality of academics while maintaining an atmosphere of peace. It's wonderful!
This school has a safe, comfortable and welcoming environment for higher education whose staff is very knowledgeable and approachable. Both of my daughters enjoy attending MLK.
I'm happy that my son attends MLK, is a very organized school. I feel that he is safe, and is getting the approriate education. There is always a friendly environment around MLK school.
MLK is like a second home to my two kids. The teachers and the staff are all so familiar to them now. They also enjoy helping out in our amazing school garden.
The staff is extremely helpful and organized! MLK provides a very nurturing environment for the children.
Excellent administration, attention to detail, efficient, organized and professional office staff (Ms. Nancy is AWESOME!)
The commitment, the level of understanding and listening and the smiles just make you feel welcome. We had originally considered having our grandson attend a charter school but after him becoming involved with MLK we are happy we chose him to attend the wonderful school
The first thing that struck me as I awaited the start of my first PTO meeting at my daughter s school was the noise. There were so many parents talking, planning and organizing within the four cinderblock walls of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. elementary school cafeteria that their collective voices were almost deafening. The din was generated by the large number of parents from all around the city. We came from a diverse collection of races, ethnicities, and socio-economic backgrounds to advocate for our school. This amount of involvement creates a great school community, and the children see their parents working together with educators to accomplish challenging goals. This school community is good for the city, as well. Seeing other parents and school friends at the store, the park, and the local Y gives us opportunities to brainstorm ideas for the school, and extend them into the city public areas. We help the city; we help the kids, and the kids benefit. What could be better?
The teachers are very caring, and have always responded promptly to any of my concerns as a parent.
My daughter and I are grateful to have been a part of the King family! We loved the way the school encouraged parents and families to be participants in the educational process!
King has always been known for its committed, enthusiastic faculty and talented student body. My classmates came from both ends of the socioeconomic spectrum, but everybody wanted to learn and do their best. Growing up with an interest in education policy, my experiences at King have given me hope and the knowledge that there is a bright future for public education in America.
KING has a blend of all cultures and makes sure that the students understand the differences found in everyone.
It's like a family. Everyone looks out for each others children. The teachers are caring and concerned. My children love going to school here!
