Welcome to the Upper School! Each of our high school aged students has talents and interests in a variety of areas, and our Faculty consistently strives to help students identify and develop such strengths by helping them design a program best suited for their individual goals and for their continued personal growth.
We strive to provide as many educational opportunities as possible that allow high school aged students to explore and cultivate the intellectual, artistic, and athletic aspects that make them unique. The many options we provide are our legacy to our students, and we expect them to take full advantage of all that King has to offer.
I invite you to explore our US pages to learn more about our programs, and to spend a day some time soon on campus to see for yourself what a terrific learning community King could be for your child.

Upper School Mission Statement
The King Upper School provides a progressive, student-centered learning environment dedicated to nurturing individual potential. Within a challenging and rich high school curriculum, we encourage students to realize their academic and personal best by helping them cultivate their particular blend of strengths and talents. Our students explore, discover, and develop these strengths and talents through opportunities in academics, arts, athletics, service learning, student-led clubs, and cultural opportunities. King students become increasingly independent in a school culture that values and teaches respect, compassion, integrity, and social responsibility. Our students learn to work collaboratively, think critically and creatively, and consider multiple perspectives – abilities that are key to thriving in a rapidly changing world.
An overview of each component of our curriculum is below.
