Because is good and the teachers is good
My was robbed and almost shot at that school. We had to have him and his brother transferred out. They were only attendingt That school for a few months. If you love your children DO NOT send them there.A mothers heart is for all children not just her own
King has excellent academics, establishing some awesome coaches and athletic program this year, top #1 band, and as always some great clubs! The administration and guidance are professionals. Teachers are accomplished and respectful. Our son attends IB, plays football, serves on National Honor Society, PRIDE, and manages his time to participate in the #1 event Relay For Life to help community. Parents are looking forward to serving for another school year. Its alot of fun! Overall a "great" school!
Although king high school has a good IB program it is not worth loosing your child over. My daughter was in the program and I pulled her out earlier this year. My daughter was cutting herself and when I brought it to the attention of Mrs. Nishira Mitchell she informed me she "was aware this was happening." So this went on all year and she never once thought to inform the parents so we could address it with our children. It begins in the home and my daughter threatened suicide and had been cutting herself for quite sometime. I think it is beyond appalling that an assistant principle who is there to help protect the children knew that cutting was taking place amongst multiple children and nothing was said to anyone and she had the nerve to acknowledge she knew this was taken place. The school should be very blessed a law suit didn't take place. I would look else where parents for an IB school that cares about the students and not just the great scores they bring to the school to make their self look good. My child was moved to Wharton High School where she is thriving. There is no more cutting and the administration is open and honest. Look elsewhere parents as you do have a choice.
