Martin Luther King Jr Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

It is a great school with awesome teachers. Our children came in the middle of the year due to moving and both teachers (K and 2) did everything to make them feel comfortable and integrated them in the class as well as with other students right away. The school's principal is very nice and the office employees are supportive as well. We love going there and our kids feel very comfortable :-) All in all, Widefield School District 3 is a great district to move into!

We have a child there and love the teachers and the fact they do adanced classes for the kids that are ready. We have been going there three years now and no complaints other than the fact of parents say nasty stuff about the school but don't realize a child's education starts at home.

I have a kindergartner and a 5th grader in King Elementary and I can wholeheartedly say that we LOVE King!!! The teachers that my daughters have had have been amazing, this year especially! The staff at King Elementary truly care about every child that attends their school. The remodel that was done the summer of 2014 was very much needed and in my opinion has made the school even more welcoming and fun to visit. Reading is very big priority for King Elementary and they take it very seriously. My oldest daughters 5th grade teacher truly helped her in more ways than one this year...because of her teacher, she has thrived and has become very confident in herself!! My daughters are getting an amazing schooling experience as they attend King Elementary.

My daughter was slotted for two local charter schools And pulled her, and placed her at King after their huge renovation. I have 0 regrets. My daughter learned to read, write, sound out words in 4 months. When you call the school the staff is always willing to help, the principal even called me personally with an answer. The staff all around genuinely care about the students, and is shows. Sad to be leaving this year.

It was my choice to enroll my son at King, even though it is "out of boundaries" for us because I went there and am familiar with the front office staff members. Unfortunately 2 years in, it is nothing but disappointment after disappointment. I have conversed with about 6 different teachers and I get the impression that all of them hate kids or are just burned out. They do a great job at making people feel like they are bad parents during parent-teacher conferences (I'm not the only one to say this!). The new inexperienced (seemingly uneducated) teacher assistants do all of the work while the actual teachers get paid to sit back. Despite what King's website states, no teachers actually post what our children are learning so we can work with them at home. The gym desperately needs air conditioning. During concerts/assemblies it gets super hot and stinks. The principal is nice, but very forgetful. Although the school bell rings at 3:19pm to let out students, my sons teacher would not release his class until 3:35pm which frustrated me. My biggest hope for this year is that my son's teacher actually loves kids and enjoys teaching. He deserves it.
