A typical faculty teaching load at the Middle School includes:
Furthermore, faculty members are expected to attend special events and meetings including those occasionally scheduled on weekends, such as Orientation Week, faculty meetings, departmental meetings, house meetings, advisor meetings, Parents Weekend and Commencement.
Various educational and character-building activities for students (e.g. community service) take place on weekends and during the summer.

In short, being a teacher at King’s requires spirit and dedication. The qualities that our own faculty recognize as most essential to their success here include patience, energy, resilience, a genuine love of young people, sensitivity to cultural difference, adaptability and a commitment, in the classroom and beyond, to continued improvement.
