Community is at our core.

At King Middle School teachers, staff, and families strive to work together to create a dynamic learning community where every child is known and supported.

The school uses a cohort model in which a vice principal, a counselor, and two resource teachers follow the students from 6th to 8th grade, providing academic, emotional, and social continuity throughout out their years at King. The staff of King is guided by the ideals of Dr. King: equality, academic excellence, community action, nonviolence, respect for self and others, and leadership based on democratic principles.

King is also home to the Edible Schoolyard, founded and supported by Chez Panisse founder Alice Waters. Students study plant cultivation, nutrition, and food preparation as a science and learn to regard the earth as a friend.
