Welcome to King Elementary School! I truly believe in our students, staff, and families. Working together we can make a positive difference and impact the lives of our scholars.
As a community of educators, we believe that college readiness begins in preschool through fifth grade. “University Starts Now” is our signature program that builds a foundation and a university-bound culture based on college awareness and motivation for all of our scholars. We have made a commitment to prepare our scholars for college by providing a strong academic curriculum that is based on state standards.
King Elementary School also provides a unique Dual language learning experience for our scholars. The mission of the Dual Language Academy is to promote bilingual fluency, biliterate, and bicultural 21st century learners with highly rigorous instruction in both Spanish and English. We prepare our scholars with the skills to compete in a global workforce.
The King school community believes in strong parental engagement. Parents are key decision makers serving on committees that support and create a climate where students thrive academically, socially and emotionally. The King Parent University offers a variety of parent classes such as Project 2 Inspire, Raising Highly Capable Kids, Padres Unidos School Readiness (3-5 years), Parent Computer Classes and Parent Literacy Workshops.
We cordially invite you to learn more about the academic programs, extracurricular programs and services that make Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary a fun and great learning environment.
