King’s Schools

College Prep

King’s Schools’ curriculum and schedule is designed to prepare it’s students for their future university academic life.  With the school’s block-schedule, classes are longer than normal, and students have only a few classes to focus on each semester. This means that teachers are able to give students more time and a deeper understanding of each subject. With a mix of lecture- and discussion-style classes, the courses are similar to college classes to ensure the transition to American university is smooth.

King’s also has an award-winning music program with an all inclusive choir, specialty vocal ensembles and an orchestra. In addition, King’s offers studio art classes and multiple theatre opportunities like improv, drama and musicals.
