Welcome to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary School! The 2017-18 school year begins on Monday, August 14th. I am so excited to begin this new school year! As the principal at King, my goal is work with our school staff and parents to ensure that our students develop the academic skills necessary for individual success. We believe that a supportive academic experience will motivate our scholars to meet high expectations.
King School values, promotes and develops biliteracy and biculturalism through the Dual Language Academy beginning in kindergarten through fifth grade. The mission of the Dual Language Program 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.
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 rigorous and supportive academic program through the continual growth towards mastery of the state standards.
