King College Prep High School Reviews
King is everything I thought it would be. The classes are hard, but I feel like I can get the help I need.
King is a very good school and I am very pleased with it -- its main problem is a struggle to shed its former reputation. It has been a selective enrollment school for a number of years now, and offers an excellent, rigorous curriculum. The principal is dedicated and the teachers are caring and committed to the students. Once you give the school a chance, you will see that it is a viable option.
Administrative staff is uncaring and unconcerned about the students and teaching staff as evidenced by the manner by the lack of due process in getting a qualified teacher to teach in the class room
I love this school
This school is decent. I however am a little concerned with my childs safety after school, and the level of disrespect in certain areas of the building.
