Martin Luther King (Jr.) High School

King High is a unique learning environment that serves between 60-80 students at any given time. King is a continuation high school, designed to meet the needs of diverse non-traditional students. We are designed to serve 11th and 12th grade students who are at least 16 years-old. New students are accepted on a case-by-case basis at the beginning of each quarter, and exit whenever they have met graduation requirements, or return to the comprehensive high school. If you are interested in enrolling at King, contact your school counselor to set up an intake interview for the next quarter.

Students and families choose King for a variety of reasons, such as credit recovery, accelerated graduation, flexible scheduling, a small learning community, one-on-one instruction, and/or to address special needs or circumstances (SpEd, ELL, etc.).  

Since its inception in 1970, the school site and facilities, as well as staff, have expanded to better meet the needs of any student who needs an alternative educational route to a diploma.  King is a family where every student matters, and our priority is to ensure that every student in our community thrives. 

King graduates receive a full high school diploma based on coursework designed to meaningfully prepare them for college and careers. Graduates are not eligible for immediate admission to most four-year universities, but many attend community college and may transfer from there to four-year universities.
