King’s has long offered an American high school curriculum grounded in the Advanced Placement (AP) program, which is recognized by colleges and universities throughout the world. Our Middle School program is both foundational and innovative, and it draws on the best thinking and research on education for this age group, including the College Board’s newly established QUEST framework for teaching and learning. That framework, which guides and shapes the curricular and pedagogical approach of our Upper School, emphasizes the skills of questioning, thinking critically and creatively, reading, writing and communication (in a variety of mediums), and it seeks to ignite young people’s natural curiosity, wonder, creativity and excitement for learning. In how we teach and engage students, we will combat the boredom, routinization and disaffection that so often characterizes the middle school experience.
