Congratulations to the Class of 2016 on their official induction into the International Baccalaureate Programme. The Junior Class celebrated this landmark at their official Pinning Ceremony with their families and friends. Mrs. Mitchell, Mr. Rowan and Robert Levine’s words of encouragement were inspiring! A fun time was had by all.

A special thank you to the wonderful parents who donated their time and contributed baked goods and drinks. We couldn’t have done it without you!!

For prospective students and their parents/guardians, “shadowing” is the opportunity for Eighth grade students to spend a day at King High School and experience firsthand what it’s like to be a student in the IB Programme at King.
