Profiles:
   

At King School, we seek more than achievement for our students. We open minds and spark courageous thinking.

King School sets a better standard for education and equips students with the insights and heart to chart their own course. We are a co-educational day school in Stamford, Connecticut, where students in PreK through Grade 12 learn and live with purpose.

Our academics set us ahead. Throughout their years at King, our students engage in student-driven inquiry and experiential learning. Our teaching methodology is guided by educational best practices and focused on strong relationships with faculty and mentors — creating a foundation for courageous thinking and impactful action. We embrace our students’ ideas and champion their successes. We open minds and encourage lifelong curiosity.

Our community sets us apart. Students and faculty come from 40 neighboring communities and 63 countries engage in an expansive curriculum that spurs conversation on culture, religion, ethnicity and lived experiences. We are empowered by our diverse talents and inspired by our different backgrounds and perspectives. Together, we celebrate every student’s uniqueness.

Our graduates set us above. They have done more than developed skills; they have become passionate learners and caring citizens. King School alumni land at the nation’s top colleges and advance in their careers confident and prepared. More importantly, they arrive courageous and ready to make an impact in their communities – and better prepared to better the world.

When young learners see education as a place to experiment, create, construct, and connect, they develop a more expansive mindset about what school can offer them. They experience education as a path of discovery, understanding, wonder, and joy. These ideas are grounded in the Reggio-Emilia inspired, project based philosophy practiced at King School. We encourage our PreKindergarten and Kindergarten learners to collaboratively explore intentionally created vibrant classroom spaces where children are actively engaged in the process of learning from the earliest ages.

Seek more than achievement for your child. Set them ahead at King. Learn how we open minds and spark courageous thinking.

Lower School:

When young learners see education as a place to experiment, create, construct, and connect, they develop a more expansive mindset about what school can offer them. They experience education as a path of discovery, understanding, wonder, and joy. These ideas are grounded in the Reggio-Emilia inspired, project based philosophy practiced at King School. We encourage our PreKindergarten and Kindergarten learners to collaboratively explore intentionally created vibrant classroom spaces where children are actively engaged in the process of learning from the earliest ages.

At King, we know that the path to excellence is different for each of us. When children are told there are only a few achievements worth striving for, their creativity and independence are stifled. At King, we set a better standard by daring young people to ask more of their education than a race to the finish. Our better way to be your best means amplifying students’ passions and uncovering their talents. King students celebrate achievement within community, and know that their King experience will take them wherever they want to go.

Middle School:

When adolescents can delve into an expansive range of interests and topics, they are more likely to discover the multitude of their talents and passions, as well as identify opportunities for growth. Students who feel supported in keeping open minds ask, “What’s next?” and “Why not?” as they look to their futures. The King Middle School promotes this self-exploration and self-awareness, encouraging students to discover their academic, artistic, and athletic talents in ways that foster balance, growth, and overall wellness.

Upper School:

When young adults are cheered on as they begin to take ownership of their ambitions and achievements, they feel like stars of a team purpose-built for their success. The King Upper School program empowers students to unleash their greatness by emphasizing self-knowledge, expansive learning, and courageous thinking—the very qualities that lead to happy, healthy, and purposeful lives.
