Heard that the IB program is all academics and no (other) fun? Let our students show you otherwise!
Yes, King students have had a pass rate from the IB program of over 90% for the last three years, but they haven’t stopped there. Our students are also athletes, musicians, leaders in student government, clubs and service organizations, speech and debate participants, writers, artists, dancers, photographers, and actors! Here’s just a sample of our student’s achievements so far this 2013/14 school year:
Reflections Winners: Sawyer Carlton and Ronit Dastidar
FL All State Ensemble: James Park – Band; Lynn Chen – Orchestra
Golf: Steffi Yo, 2nd place at Regionals
Girls Volleyball — District Champions
Boy’s Swim Team — District Champions
KHS Band — Superior Rating for performance of Les Miserables
King IB students are extremely well-rounded, active participants and leaders in many events and activities, and we are very proud of their achievements and the diversity of their interests. Go Lions!
A Junior Parent Meeting is scheduled for this Tuesday, November 19th, at 6 pm in the Auditorium to provide information and tips on the college selection and scholarship application process. All Junior students and their parents are invited to attend.
